The Cisco CCNA course is designed to help learners prepare and take the Cisco Certified Network Associate exam 200-120 CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate. This Cisco CCNA course explains how to install, configure, and monitor Cisco switches and routers. Learners are taught the functions of each layer in the Open Systems Interconnect Model, LAN protocols and switching methods, IP Addressing, and WAN protocols. Finally, learners are taught how to configure VLANs, establish Point-to-Point connections, configure ISDN, establish Frame Relay connections, and manage IP traffic with Access Lists.

This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium size enterprise branch network. The topics include connecting to a WAN; implementing network security; network types; network media; routing and switching fundamentals; the TCP/IP and OSI models; IP addressing; WAN technologies; operating and configuring IOS devices; extending switched networks with VLANs; determining IP routes; managing IP traffic with access lists; establishing point-to-point connections; and establishing Frame Relay connections.

 

 

About this Course

The Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices is an instructor-led course that introduces learners to the installation, operation, configuration, and troubleshooting basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks. In this class learners configure a LAN switch and an IP router, identify basic security threats, understand redundant topologies, troubleshoot common network issues, connect to a WAN, configure EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understand WAN technologies, and get familiar with device management and Cisco licensing. Key additions to this revision of the course include understanding of Quality of Service (QoS) elements and their applicability, how virtualized and cloud services interact and impact enterprise networks, and an overview of network programmability with the related controller types and tools that are available to support software-defined network (SDN) architectures. Also included is understanding of the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security.
