IT-2014: Cisco Certified Network Associate with Practice Labs

This course will teach you to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network.

You'll learn network fundamentals and how to configure networks using components such as switches, routers, and wireless LAN controllers. A series of labs are designed to give you hands-on practice honing your skills in real-world scenarios. This course prepares you for the 200-301 Cisco Certified Network Associate (CNNA) exam by covering the following topics:

  • The components and characteristics of a computer network

  • The features and functions of Cisco IOS software

  • Installing a switch and performing initial configuration
