Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Routing and Switching (CCNA)

  • Course Overview
  • Course Outline
  • Course Arrangements
This course will provide participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to implement and support a small switched and routed network. In addition, it will enable participants to develop a practical understanding of the operation of modern TCP/IP networks built with Cisco hardware, by learning the commands and techniques used to troubleshoot host connections, configuring Cisco switches and routers and practicing backing up, restoring configuration files and managing network equipment. It will also show them how to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium-size branch office Enterprise network, including configuring several switches and routers, connecting to a WAN and implementing network security.
The primary audience for this course is people who are rather new to IT and need a good understanding of networking for related IT roles or are preparing for the CCNA or CCENT certifications.
At Course Completion: 

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe how networks function, identifying major components, function of network components, and the OSI reference model
  • Using the host-to-host packet delivery process, describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN and identify switched LAN technology solutions to Ethernet networking issues
  • Describe the reasons for extending the reach of a LAN and the methods that can be used, with a focus on RF wireless access
  • Describe the reasons for connecting networks with routers and how routed networks transmit data through networks using TCP / IP
  • Describe the function of WANs, the major devices of WANs, and configure PPP encapsulation, static and dynamic routing, PAT, and RIP routing
  • Use the command-line interface to discover neighbors on the network and manage the router start up and configuration
  • Review how to configure and troubleshoot a small network
  • Expand the switched network from a small LAN to a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking and spanning tree
  • Describe routing concepts as they apply to a medium-sized network and discuss considerations when implementing routing on the network
  • Configure, verify and troubleshoot OSPF
  • Configure, verify and troubleshoot EIGRP
  • Determine how to apply ACLs based on network requirements, and to configure, verify, and troubleshoot ACLs on a medium-sized network
  • Describe when to use NAT or PAT on a medium-sized network, and configure NAT or PAT on routers
  • Identify and implement the appropriate WAN technology based on network requirements
