Full Stack Networking Project

In this project we will roll out a complete full stack network environment with a headquarters location and two branch offices. We'll plan, design and implement all of the routing, switching, security, wireless, and voice over IP services!
Skill Level
100 Hours

The Full Stack Networking Project is designed to provide an understanding of a complete HQ/Branch network and the project build-out process. Students will learn how to plan, design, and implement their own Full Stack Network with a headquarters location and two branch offices. This project is performed locally on the student's computer and all configurations are completed using the Cisco Packet Tracer network simulation software. Cisco Packet Tracer is available for free from the Cisco Networking Academy.
