CCNA - Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions v1.0


Duration: 5 days

The Implementing and Administering Cisco Solutions (CCNA) v1.0 course gives you a broad range of fundamental knowledge for all IT careers. Through a combination of lecture and hands-on labs, you will learn how to install, operate, configure, and verify basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks. The course covers configuring network components such as switches, routers, and wireless LAN controllers; managing network devices; and identifying basic security threats. The course also gives you a foundation in network programmability, automation, and software-defined networking.


After taking this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the components of a computer network and describe their basic characteristics
  • Understand the model of host-to-host communication
  • Describe the features and functions of the Cisco Internet work Operating System (IOS®) software
  • Describe LANs and the role of switches within LANs
  • Describe Ethernet as the network access layer of TCP/IP and describe the operation of switches
  • Install a switch and perform the initial configuration
  • Describe the TCP/IP Internet layer, IPv4, its addressing scheme, and subnetting
  • Describe the TCP/IP Transport layer and Application layer
  • Explore functions of routing
  • Implement basic configuration on a Cisco router
  • Explain host-to-host communications across switches and routers
  • Identify and resolve common switched network issues and common problems associated with IPv4 addressing
  • Describe IPv6 main features and addresses, and configure and verify basic IPv6 connectivity
  • Describe the operation, benefits, and limitations of static routing
  • Describe, implement, and verify virtual local area networks (VLANs) and trunks
  • Describe the application and configuration of inter-VLAN routing
  • Explain the basics of dynamic routing protocols and describe components and terms of Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
  • Explain how Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) work
  • Configure link aggregation using Ether Channel
  • Describe the purpose of Layer 3 redundancy protocols
  • Describe basic WAN and VPN concepts
  • Describe the operation of access control lists (ACLs) and their applications in the network
  • Configure Internet access using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) clients and explain and configure network address translation (NAT) on Cisco routers
  • Describe basic quality of service (QoS) concepts
  • Describe the concepts of wireless networks, which types of wireless networks can be built, and how to use Wireless LAN Controllers (WLCs)
  • Describe network and device architectures and introduce virtualization
  • Introduce the concept of network programmability and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and describe smart network management solutions such as Cisco DNA Center™, Software-Defined Access (SD-Access), and Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN)
  • Configure basic IOS system monitoring tools
  • Describe the management of Cisco devices
  • Describe the current security threat landscape
  • Describe threat defense technologies
  • Implement a basic security configuration of the device management plane
  • Implement basic steps to harden network devices
