Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated v3.0

Vendor: Cisco
Course Outline

Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX), is an instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, connecting to a WAN, and identifying basic security threats. Also covers topics in more depth and teaches learners how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks, preparing learners for Cisco CCNA certification.

This course teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and troubleshoot basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, identifying basic security threats, understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common network issues, connecting to a WAN, configuring EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding wide-area network technologies, and getting familiar with device management and Cisco licensing.

Key additions to this latest revision include an understanding of Quality of Service (QoS) elements and their applicability, how virtualized and cloud services will 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 architectures. Also included is the understanding the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security

A full suite of labs have been developed using the virtual IOS environment with flexible topologies that reinforce concepts with hands-on, guided discovery and challenge labs that align to each lesson module.

Prerequisites & Audience
Due to the accelerated nature of this course it is expected that delegates will already possess existing experience working with Cisco Products and should have a strong existing familiarity with the concepts and products covered in the course. In addition, the learner should possess the following skills:

Basic computer literacy
Basic PC operating system navigation skills
Basic Internet usage skills
Basic IP address knowledge
Good understanding of network fundamentals
Delegates without this existing experience should consider attending the Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 1 Version 3.0 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 Version 3.0 (ICND2) courses instead.

Individuals seeking the Cisco CCNA® Routing and Switching certification. The course is also appropriate for pre-sales and post-sales network engineers involved in the installation and support of enterprise branch office networks.

Key Job Tasks: Configure: Implement the identified solution by applying the planned implementation processes using Cisco IOS commands and applications in the correct order to the selected devices and portions of the network. Verify: Use the appropriate show and debug commands and applications to ensure that the solution was correctly implemented and is performing as desired. Troubleshoot: Use the appropriate show and debug commands and applications to identify the cause of basic level network issues and correctly implement a solution that ensures the network is performing as desired. Job roles: Entry Level Network Engineer, Network Administrator, Network Support Technician or Help Desk Technician.
Course Objectives
Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

Describe network fundamentals and build simple LANs
Establish Internet connectivity
Manage and secure network devices
Operate a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree
