Networking, Communications and Systems Integration - this unit explores the issues involved in moving and sharing information, including the issues of ‘control’ of that process. It explores where information is stored, why and how it is moved to create a joined-up system, and how encryption can keep it safe from eavesdroppers – considering both ‘push’ and ‘pull’ communications methods. Technical issues of networking are covered, as are different approaches to achieving enterprise wide integration. For these to work there is an essential, but currently largely missing, infrastructure requirement that needs to be addressed. HI201-01 should be completed prior to enrolment in this course.
