Cisco Routing and Switching: ICND1 & CCENT

Routing & Switching: ICND1 & CCENT

In the course "Cisco Routing and Switching : ICND1 - Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices 1", you'll be submersed into a three day training program of that will help you develop the skills to operate modern TCP/IP networks that are built with Cisco hardware.

You will also earn the CCENT certification at completion of this course.

This course is beneficial for people that are new to the IT world, and who need to develop more working knowledge of networking for management or sales positions. Additionally, this course would be beneficial for anyone who is seeking to one day obtain CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) certification.

In order to enroll in this course there are certain prerequisites that must be met. You must have a general knowledge of networking concepts. There are other courses that offer an introduction to networking fundamentals, and it would be helpful to have completed this course prior to enrolling in Cisco Routing and Switching.

In this course, you will learn commands, techniques, and tips to help you troubleshoot host connections. You will also learn to configure specific Cisco routers and switches, and go through exercise designed to help you practice managing network equipment and how to restore and back up configuration files. You will take this course in a hands on ICND1 lab environment, and you will be provided with a full set of equipment, which will include two 2611XM Multiservice Routers running 5b Advanced IP Services and a 2950 Catalyst Switch which runs 12.1 IOS CRYPTO Services. You will be assigned a lab partner and together you will obtain realistic, probable experience that will aid you in your future career. Your specific area will be routed to a core router that will act as a Frame Relay switch, so you and your partner's area will be totally independent from the rest of your classmates. Every router will have multiple serial interfaces with a variety of configurations, like HDLC, PPP and many Fast Ethernet Interfaces, allowing conversion support for forwarding paths. This will help you practice trunking, VLANS, STP, and more so that you'll be prepared for your exam.

Some of the key things that you'll learn in this class are:

* How various networks function
* Open Systems Interconnection reference model information
* Router switching operation techniques
* Numbering: Binary, decimal, and hexadecimal
* IP subnetting and TCP/IP addressing and routing
* How to configure Cisco Catalyst Switches and Routers
* Skills for network discovery and management while using Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) and Trivial FTP (TFTP)
* An introduction to Cisco Internet Operating System (IOS)

In addition to these key elements of the course, you'll also address network theories, including Virtual Private networks, Intranets and Extranets, wireless networking, and Content Delivery Networks, alongside looking various network components and the various functions of them. In this course you will also learn Host to Host packet delivery processes, and how to provide services to Local Area Networks (LAN), Wide Area Networks (WAN) and other remote access functions.

The course is broken up into six major sections:
  • Essential Tools in Building Simple Networks: This part of the course covers topics like the many functions of networks and how to secure the network. You will also gain a deeper working knowledge of Ethernet and about connecting to a Ethernet LAN.
  • LAN Connections: You will learn about the basic functions of routing and look at basic binary information. This section also covers the construction of a network addressing schemes, how to start, configure, and secure routers, and how to access remote devices. You will also look at how to use a Cisco router and a security device manager, and you will learn about the packet delivery process directly through a router.
  • 3.) Wide Area Networks: This section of the course covers WAN technology and how to enable internet connections and static routing, in addition to how to enable Routing Information Protocol (RIP).
  • 4.) Ethernet LANs: In this part of the course topics such as the challenges of shared LANs and how to operate the Cisco IOS software will be addressed. You will also learn some helpful information on how to solve possible network challenges with switched technology, and how to start and troubleshoot switch issues. Packet delivery processing through switches will also be addressed.
  • 5.) Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs): A small section of the course that explores wireless networking and how to start and secure a WLAN.
  • 6.) Tools of Network Environment Management: In this section of the course basics such as managing different Cisco devices, how to configure and startup a router, and how to find neighbors on the network to connect with.

In addition to the sections of the course and the information covered within each part, there are labs that will be conducted to aid in the instruction of each topic. The labs will vary from hands on tasks like the initial setup of a PC with DHCP to using all of the skills you acquired in the course in order to effectively troubleshoot switch and router configurations. For example, in the troubleshooting switch and routers lab, you will have the opportunity to find and fix errors and then have the chance to evaluate the new configuration and determine if it's functioning as is expected.

Upon successful completion of the course, you may want to look at taking the course ICND1 to further expand on what you learned and tackle other techniques in routing and switching.

I loved having the option of exchanging bulky textbooks with Kindle books for my reader. All of them were thorough, informative, and great for preparation. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and very good at presenting bulks of information in a way that could be quickly processed.

The instructors real world experience lent insight towards the material and helped us to apply or study beyond the textbooks. The prestudy material will help guide me as a reference resource in the future. The lab books provided endless excersises to master the skills being taught in the classroom.

Instructor did a fantastic job of delivering a large set of very dense course material cogently to the class. She obviously had the material down cold and could easily break down elements of the different knowledge domains in clear explanations.

- Byron Caswell

Excellent instructor. One of the best I have had in over 27 years in the IT business. Genuinely cared about the students understanding the subject material and their success in passing the exam. She taught how to think and reason to pass the test. That is something not found in any text book.

- Craig Calder

Instructor demonstrated advanced knowledge of the subject matter as well as INFOSEC in general. He provided us with all of the tools and reference materials we needed to perform the DIACAP process. The course materials are great!
