ID : 19668   
« back to classes page

Cisco certifications were included in a list of the 15 Top-Paying IT Certifications in both 2016 and 2017 (Global Knowledge). Gain the knowledge necessary to earn the Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) credential and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) credential, preparing you for a career in networking. Learn the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and computer networks. The principles of IP addressing and fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are also introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. You will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes. Learn the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small, large, and complex network. You will learn to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality and develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP operations in a network. This course enables students to understand the selection criteria of network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements. Students will configure and troubleshoot network devices and resolve common issues with data link protocols as well as develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement virtual private network (VPN) operations in a complex network.

Textbooks are required at the first class meeting and are available at the KSU Center bookstore. Internet access is required. 1GB USB required for class. We strongly recommend that you have a basic knowledge of networking before entering the class.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Describe the devices and services used to support communications in data networks and the Internet
  • Design an IP addressing scheme to provide network connectivity for a small to medium-sized business network
  • Explain how switching operates in a small to medium-sized business network
  • Use monitoring tools available for small to medium-sized business networks
  • Employ DHCP, network address translation (NAT), and access control lists (ACLs) to filter traffic
  • Set up and configure Ethernet switch ports
  • Use monitoring tools and network management protocols to troubleshoot data networks
  • Set up, verify, and troubleshoot VLANs spanning multiple switches: VTP, DTP and EtherChannel
  • Set up, verify, and troubleshoot STP protocols: Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), Per VLAN Spanning Tree Plus Protocol (PVST+) and Rapid Per VLAN Spanning Tree Plus Protocol (RPVST+)
  • Explain, configure, and troubleshoot first hop redundancy protocols (HSRP)
  • Describe dynamic routing protocols, distance vector routing protocols, and link-state routing protocols
  • Set up, verify, and troubleshoot routers in a complex routed IPv4 or IPv6 network using single-area OSPF, multi-area OSPF, and Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)
  • Describe different WAN technologies and the benefits of virtual private networks (VPNs) and tunneling
  • Set up, configure, verify, and troubleshoot tunneling operations, network problems using SPAN, serial connections: HDLC and PPP, and eBGP in a single-homed remote access network
  • Use SNMP to monitor network operations in a small to medium-sized business network
  • Describe basic QoS concepts: network transmission characteristics, queueing algorithms and QoS mechanisms
  • Describe Cloud Computing and Network Programmability in an enterprise network architecture
  • Identify and troubleshoot end-to-end connectivity in a small to medium-sized business network, using a systematic approach
