Duration: 5 days

Managing Industrial Networks for Manufacturing with Cisco Technologies (IMINS2) Version 1.3.0 is a lab-intensive course, which helps students with the skills required to successfully implement and troubleshoot the most common industry standard protocols while leveraging best practices needed in security and Wireless technologies for today's industrial networks. The IMINS2 course, developed in conjunction with Rockwell Automation, helps plant administrators, control system engineers and traditional network engineers in the manufacturing, process control, and oil and gas industries, who will be involved with the convergence of IT and Industrial networks. This course also helps you prepare for the managing Industrial Networks for Manufacturing with Cisco Technologies Certification exam (exam ID 200-01) and (having completed required prerequisites) qualify for the Cisco Certified Network Associate industrial (CCNA Industrial) certification. This course is job-role specific and enables you to achieve competency and skills to configure, maintain, and troubleshoot industry standard network protocols as well as wireless and security technologies to ensure that current infrastructures are maximized while developing a converged platform for flexibility to support future business outcomes. Students will be exposed to multiple industrial network technologies as well as products from Cisco and other industrial suppliers including Rockwell Automation.
