KEY LEARNING POINTS
Over the course of two modules, participants will learn everything they need to manage a basic Cisco network and begin the process of earning a CCNA qualification.
Upon completion of the first module, students will have learned:
How to implement Variable Length Subnet Masks (VLSM) to improve IP addressing efficiency.
The importance of IPv6 and how to implement it within a corporate network and the use of Open Shortest Path First (OPSF) routing
Implementing VLANs and Trunks to route and segment traffic for improved network performance.
Scaling a network using NAT and PAT to meet the need of a growing business.
The second section of the ICND course takes students through the process of managing, maintaining and troubleshooting a Cisco-based network. Using the supplied course materials and Practice-Lab access, participants will master:
Administration and licensing of Cisco hardware devices and management tools.
