Cisco-Interconnecting Network Devices Level 2 (ICND2) (5 Days)

This five–day workshop for intermediate routing technicians is designed for IT professionals who want to learn to implement Cisco switches and routers in small to medium-size enterprise and branch networks. Participants will learn about redundant topologies and fault tolerance through hands-on instruction and lab projects. This course provides the installation, configuration, and troubleshooting information that intermediate routing technicians need to operate Cisco products effectively.

    NOTE: Our certified instructors use the official Cisco Press textbook, mapping to the exams for Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing & Switching certification.

      Performance Objectives: Upon successful completion of this course you should be able to:

      • Operate a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches
        • Identify enhancements to the Spanning Tree Protocol
        • Configure and verify PVSTP operation
      • Perform network management
        • Configure boot preferences
        • Utilize syslog and SNMP
        • Manage Cisco IOS files and licensing
