Course Description

This program focuses on providing the skills and knowledge necessary to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small- to medium-size branch office Enterprise network, including configuring several Cisco Catalyst switches and Cisco routers, connecting to a WAN and implementing network security.

Each course uses interactive media to help students develop an understanding of technology concepts and provides opportunities to apply, practice, and reinforce this knowledge through hands-on activities and network simulations. Students complete a basic procedural lab, followed by basic configuration, implementation, and troubleshooting labs throughout each course. Cisco Packet Tracer activities allow students to model and analyze routing processes that may be difficult to visualize or understand, and to practice their skills within simulated networks. Quizzes, skills assessments, chapter exams, and practice exams provide additional feedback as students advance through the curriculum.

CCNA Routing and Switching also familiarizes students with new technologies such as IOS 15, IPv6, QoS and HSRP. In addition, students become aware of Programmable Network (SDN aka Software Defined Network) architectures and the separation of control plane and data plane. They also learn expanded VPN topics like DMVPN, Site-to-Site VPN, and Client VPN technologies. The curriculum ends with Cloud resources and the Enterprise.
