- Course Outline
This course focuses on providing the skills and knowledge necessary to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small branch office Enterprise network, including configuring a switch and a router and connecting to a WAN and implementing network security. A student should be able to complete configuration and implementation of a small branch office network under supervision. This course is intended for network technicians, network administrators, and technical support personnel.
This course is also offered as part of our LIVE and ONLINE program. Our LIVE and ONLINE learning modality delivers authorized Cisco training taught by a Cisco Certified instructor directly to customers.
Every student has access to the class through a standard conference bridge or VoIP with an optional USB Microphone-Headset. Each student has access to their own unique pod of equipment throughout the week of study. The online environment is created via WebEx, allowing a live instructor to deliver the training in real time. By incorporating slides, notes, examples, and Q&A sessions, the instructor is able to recreate the classroom experience. Our LIVE and ONLINE training is also completely interactive; students have the opportunity for discussion with the instructor as well as with their peers.
Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to:
Describe how networks function, identifying major components, function of network components and the Open System Interconnection (OSI) reference model
Use the host-to-host packet delivery process to describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN and identify switched LAN technology solutions to Ethernet networking issues
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 with routers and how routed networks transmit data through networks using TCP/IP
Describe the function of Wide Are Networks (WANs), the major devices of WANs and configure PPP encapsulation, static and dynamic routing, PAT and RIP routing
Use the command line interface to discover neighbours on the network and manage the router's startup and configuration
