CCNA Certification (CCNAX) v3

Type: IT InstructorLed Courses
Category: CISCO Routing and Switching
The CCNAX v3.0 provides consists of Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) content merged into a single course. It provides you with the knowledge and skills that are needed to install, operate, configure, verify and troubleshoot a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, managing network devices, and identifying basic security threats. The course focuses on the functions of networking, knowledge of Cisco routers and switches, establishing internet connectivity, managing ACLs, configuring device security, implementing VLANs and trunks, configuring static routing and RIPv2, and becoming familiar with IPv6. You will also learn how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks, preparing learners for Cisco CCNA certification. CCNAX also ensures that students understand and are ready to deploy the latest shifts in technologies and solutions as follows: • understanding of Quality of Service (QoS) elements and their applicability • how virtualized and cloud services will interact and impact enterprise networks • an overview of network programmability and the related controller types and tools that are available to support software defined network architectures 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
