This 5-day course is designed to provide network engineers and technicians with the knowledge and skills required to implement and support a provider network (P-network).
The course focuses on using Cisco switches and routers that are connected in LANs and WANs and that are typically found in the P-network. Upon completing this course, learners will be able to configure, verify, and troubleshoot the various Cisco networking devices.
The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE Software and Cisco IOS XR Software features to operate and support the P-network.
Network Engineers operating in a Service Provider environment and individuals looking to achieve the Cisco Certified Network Associate SP Certification.
After you complete this course you will be able to:
Describe the Cisco IP NGN Architecture
Expand a small, switched LAN to a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking and Spanning Tree Protocol
Describe routing concepts as they apply to a P-network and discuss considerations when implementing routing on the network
Implement internal and external routing protocols: OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP
Describe and implement basic MPLS
Determine how to apply ACLs that are based on network requirements, and implement ACLs on a P-network
Describe when to use NAT and implement NAT on Cisco routers
Describe basic IPv6 concepts and use different configuration scenarios to implement IPv6
Describe the fundamentals of Cisco IOS XR technology
