Course Description

The course covers the elements of Quality of Service (QoS) and their applicability, explores how virtualized and cloud services interact and impact enterprise networks, and provides an overview of network programmability with the related controller types and tools that are available to support Software-Defined Networking (SDN) architectures. You’ll also gain an understanding of the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers, and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security.

This course consists of two courses merged into a single course: Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2).

Course Objectives:

After taking this course, you should be able to:

  • 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
  • Troubleshoot IP connectivity
  • Describe how to configure and troubleshoot Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) in an IPv4 environment, and configure EIGRP for IPv6
  • Configure and troubleshoot Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) in an IPv4 environment and configure OSPF for IPv6
  • Define characteristics, functions, and components of a WAN
  • Describe how device management can be implemented
  • Understand QoS, virtualization and cloud services, and network programmability related to WAN, access, and core segments.
