Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named DkIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Module Indicative Content
Specification
Specification will establish end user requirements, business goals and constraints along with technical goals and constraints.
Design
The design aspect of the project will produce an initial design proposal based on end user specifications. Justification for the design will also be included.
Implementation
Implement and test the solution proposed in the design phase. The implementation may use virtual software such as Hyper-V, Cisco Packetracer or VIRL. Students will outline and demonstrate to some degree the difficulties, challenges and benefits that a company might experience in implementing such services in a network.
Document
Produce project documentation that will cover all apects of the project to include specification, design, implementation and troubleshooting.
