Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 focuses on providing the skills and knowledge necessary to implement and support a small switched and routed network. For the purpose of this course, a small network is defined as 1 to 20 hosts connected to a single switch, with the switch running a single VLAN (VLAN1). The switch is also connected to a router providing a routed link (Routing Information Protocol [RIP] and default) to a simulated Internet and corporate office. The course starts with an introduction to networks. It then introduces host-to-host communications using TCP / IP. Next, Layer 2 devices (switches) are introduced into the network. Next, Layer 3 devices (routers) are introduced into the network.
What Will I Learn?
After successfully completing this course, you will be able to describe how networks function, how major components are identified, the function of network components, and the OSI reference model. Delegates will also be able to know how to use the host-to-host packet delivery process, describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN, identity switched LAN technology solutions to Ethernet networking issues and many other advanced skills.
