Description

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

This course presents the concept, commands, and practice required to configure Cisco switches and routers in multiprotocol internetworks. Through lectures, discussions, demonstrations, exercises, and laboratory projects, students are given information sufficient to identify and recommend the best Cisco solutions for small to medium-sized businesses.

Students perform all basic configuration procedures to build a multi router, multi group internetwork that uses LAN and WAN interfaces for the most commonly used routing and routed protocols. ICND provides the installation, configuration, and troubleshooting information that technical support people require to install and configure Cisco products.

 

AUDIENCE

This course is intended for students new to Cisco products. Network technicians, Network administrators, network support staff, Help desk personnel, network device installers, CCNA candidates and CCNP candidates
