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.
Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Determine in which situations a hub, switch or router would be more appropriately used
- Use Cisco software to identify addresses, protocols, and connectivity status in a network containing multiple interconnected Cisco devices
- Interconnect Cisco switches and routers according to a given network design specification
- Configure Cisco switches and routers to support a specified lit of protocols and technologies
- Configure access lists to control access to network devices or segments and general network traffic
- Verify that Cisco switches and routers, as well as their configured network services and protocols, operate as intended within a given network specification
This program will be conducted with interactive lectures, PowerPoint presentations, discussions and practical lab exercises.
- A basic knowledge of data networking
- A basic understanding of networking concepts and terminology
- An exposure to IP or IPX networking
- Experience working within a networked environment
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
