This unique course comprises two parts: 1) presents advanced topics in converging and unified information and communications technologies; and, 2) involves a comprehensive review of all previous networking and communications topics covered in previous computer, networking, security, and telecommunications courses. In addition to learning about advanced information and communications technologies, students will be prepared to take and pass the CompTIA (Computer Technology Industry Association) CTP+ (Convergence Technologies Professional+) certification exam. The capstone part of the class allows students to verify skills and knowledge obtained in previous computer, networking, security, and telecommunications classes. Students will design, build, test, operate and maintain end-to-end converging and unified information and communication networks during the capstone's "hands-on" labs.
