Designed for students with little or no previous NetScaler, NetScaler Gateway or Unified Gateway experience, this course is best suited for individuals who will be deploying or managing NetScaler, NetScaler Gateway, or Unified Gateway environments.
The course has been completely redeveloped and improves upon CNS-207: Implementing Citrix NetScaler 11 for App and Desktop Solutions via the following:
Improved course structure and flow to focus on NetScaler essentials for the first 3 days, and NetScaler Gateway and Unified Gateway features for the remaining 2.A new lab environment, redesigned and built for enhanced performance.Incorporated course feedback that has been gathered over the last year.New content introduced throughout the course.
Part 1: NetScaler Essentials (Days 1-3)Learn the skills required to implement NetScaler components including secure Load Balancing, High Availability, and NetScaler Management. At the end of the course students will be able to configure their NetScaler environments to address traffic delivery and management requirements including load balancing, availability, and NetScaler operation management.
Part 2: NetScaler Gateway and Unified Gateway (Days 4-5)Learn the skills required to configure and manage NetScaler Gateway and Unified Gateway features, including how to implement Gateway components including NetScaler Gateway and Unified Gateway. At the end of the course students will be able to configure their NetScaler environments to address remote access requirements for Apps and Desktops.
Students interested in learning how to implement and manage the advanced NetScaler features using leading practices. Specifically:
Implementers / Engineers
In addition to field experience, this course helps prepares candidates for the 1Y0-253: Implementing Citrix NetScaler 10.5 for App and Desktop Solutions exam. By passing the 1Y0-253: Implementing Citrix NetScaler 10.5 for App and Desktop Solutions exam, candidates will gain the Citrix Certified Associate - Networking (CCA-N).
Built for IT Professionals working with NetScaler, with little or no previous NetScaler experience. Potential students include administrators, engineers, and architects interested in learning how to deploy or manage NetScaler, NetScaler Gateway, or Unified Gateway environments.
Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be able to:
Identify the functionality and capabilities of the NetScaler
Explain basic NetScaler network architecture
Explain how SSL is used to secure the NetScaler
Configure Authentication and Authorization
Define End User Access and Experience
Integrate NetScaler Gateway with XenApp and XenDesktop
Integrate Unified Gateway with additional resources
Employ recommended tools and techniques to troubleshoot common NetScaler Gateway network and connectivity issues
Citrix course materials are only available to delegates in e-courseware format. Delegates will be provided with instructions on how to access their e-courseware on day one of the event. Those delegates who are attending via either virtual or extended classroom will be required to provide either three monitors (to view courseware, labs and instructor demos simultaneously) or two monitors and a mobile device. Delegates will be required to have an active TCC (Training.Citrix.com) account in order to access course materials and labs.
Please set up Your TCC account up in advance of the course using the following link:
Please note: It is highly recommended that the delegate uses a personal email address (rather than company email) to set up their TCC account. If you do not wish to reference your company name when setting up your TCC account we recommend you use 'EDUCALC' as reference.
Should you encounter any issues in setting up your TCC account please ensure that you raise this directly with Citrix in advance of your event by visiting http://training.citrix.com then on the home page click, Help, then select Classroom Support, and submit a Critical or High priority request notifying Citrix of the course start date.
