CCNAX v1.1 - Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated

Share |


    Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote This 5 day course is an extended hours instructor-led boot camp that provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium-sized network, including connecting to a WAN and implementing network security. This course is the equivalent of Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 1 v1.0 and Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 v1.0 together. The ideal candidate would be someone who has worked in a data network environment (PC support/helpdesk or network operations/monitoring), and has had hands-on experience, though no formal training, with Cisco IOS devices. This boot camp will serve to review and expand on what the candidate already knows and add to it, the detailed configuration and implementation of Cisco IOS devices. Prospective CCNAX v1.0 students should prepare themselves for course days consisting of at least 10 hours and as long as 12 hours. Homework will be assigned and reviewed daily. Those new to networking and to Cisco IOS should consider taking the ICND1 and ICND2 classes instead of CCNAX v1.0.
Who Should Attend:
    The primary audience for this course includes Network Administrators, Network Engineers, Network Managers, and Systems Engineers. The secondary audience for this course includes Network Designers and Project Managers. Students should have basic computer literacy, basic Microsoft Windows navigation skills, and basic Internet usage skills.

What You Will Learn:

    • Describe how networks function, identifying major components, function of network components, and the OSI reference model
    • Describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN and expand the switched network from a small LAN to a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree
    • Describe the reasons for extending the reach of a LAN and the methods that can be used, with a focus on RF wireless access
    • Describe the reasons for connecting networks and connecting multiple IP subnets with routers
    • Configure and verify a Cisco router for WAN connections with HDLC and PPP encapsulation, PAT, static routing, and describe the components that make up a VPN solution
    • Use the command-line interface to discover neighbors on the network and manage the router startup and configuration
    • Describe routing concepts as they apply to a medium-sized network, discuss dynamic routing with distance vector and link-state routing protocols, and configure RIP
    • Configure, verify, and troubleshoot single-area OSPF
    • Configure, verify, and troubleshoot EIGRP
    • Determine how to apply ACLs based on network requirements, and to configure, verify, and troubleshoot ACLs
    • Describe when to use NAT and PAT on a medium-sized network, how to configure NAT and PAT, and explain IPv6 addressing and configuration on a Cisco router
    • Configure, verify, and troubleshoot Frame Relay
