Cisco CCNAX boot camp

As Enterprises migrate towards controller based architectures, the role and skills required of a core network engineer are evolving and are more vital than ever. To prepare for this network transition, the CCNA Routing and Switching certification will not only prepare you with the knowledge of foundational technologies, but ensure you stay relevant with the skill sets needed for the adoption of next generation technologies.

The CCNA Routing and Switching Boot Camp is a composite course derived from ICND1 and ICND2 content merged into a single accelerated course.
A full suite of labs have been developed using the virtual IOS environment with flexible topologies that reinforce concepts with hands-on, guided discovery and challenge labs that align to each lesson module.

This course will enable you to:

  • Prepare for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification.
  • Operate a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning trees.
  • Understand the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points.
  • Develop core routing and switching networking skills to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot Cisco networks for increased effectiveness and optimal performance within SMB and Enterprise settings.
  • Understand how device management can be implemented using the traditional and intelligent ways.
  • Understand QoS, virtualization and cloud services, and network programmability related to WAN, access and core segments.
  • Support Cisco network deployments and maintain these services in an on-going operational network.
