CCNA - Routing and Switching Essentials


This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPng, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

Students who complete the Routing and Switching Essentials course will be able to perform thefollowing functions:

• Understand and describe basic switching con-
cepts and the operation of Cisco switches
• Understand and describe the purpose, nature, and operations of a router, routing tables, and the route lookup process
• Understand and describe how VLANs create logically separate networks and how routing occurs between them
• Understand and describe dynamic routing protocols, distance vector routing protocols, and link-state routing protocols
• Configure and troubleshoot static routing and default routing (RIP and RIPng)
• Configure and troubleshoot an Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) network
• Understand, configure, and troubleshoot access control lists (ACLs) for IPv4 and IPv6 networks
• Understand, configure, and troubleshoot Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for IPv4 and IPv6 networks
