CCNA Routing and Switching Boot Camp

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description In this course, you will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network. You will focus on configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, identifying basic security threats, understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common network issues, connecting to a wide-area network (WAN), configuring EIGRP and OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding WAN technologies, and getting familiar with device management and Cisco licensing. This course combines the ICND1 v2 and ICND2 v2 content into a single 5-day fast paced, hands on boot camp designed for ideal CCNA exam preparation. Our course includes a CCNAX composite 200-120 exam voucher.
