(5 Day Accelerated Course)
The CCNAX, an accelerated CCNA course, allows candidates to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to install, operate, monitor, and troubleshoot a small to medium-sized network, including connecting to a WAN and implementing network security.
Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) is the composite exam associated with the CCNA Routing and Switching certification.
The course reviews the following:
- Describe how networks function, identifying major components, function of network components, and the OSI reference model.
- Using the host-to-host packet delivery process, describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN and expand the switched network from a small LAN to a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree.
- Describe the reasons for extending the reach of a LAN and the methods that can be used, with a focus on RF wireless access.
- Configure and verify a Cisco router for WAN connections with HDLC and PPP encapsulation, PAT, and Static Routing.
- Use the command-line interface to discover neighbors on the network and manage the router startup and configuration.
- Describe routing concepts as they apply to a medium-sized network and discuss dynamic routing with distance vector and link-state routing protocols and configuring RIP.
- Determine how to apply ACLs based on network requirements, and to configure, verify, and troubleshoot ACLs.
- Describe when to use NAT / PAT on a medium-sized network, how to configure NAT / PAT, and explain IPv6 addressing and configuration on a Cisco router
- Configure, verify, and troubleshoot Frame Relay.
