CCNA Routing & Switching:
CCNA Routing & Switching is a two-module intensive course in networking concepts and device configuration. This is a fast-paced, in-depth, and condensed semester. This is not a boot camp or a traditional college class. It is an optimized learning environment. Homework and out of class reading is required.
CCNA Routing and Switching teaches comprehensive networking concepts, from network applications to the protocols and services provided to those applications by the lower layers of the network. Students will progress from basic networking to more complex enterprise and theoretical networking models later in the curriculum. This course covers all four (4) semesters of the Cisco Networking Academy Program.
This course prepares the students to take the CCNA Routing and Switching certification exam 200-120 CCNA.
Montgomery College participates in the Cisco Networking Academy Program. In order to enhance your learning experience, our classes are taught in a state of the art training lab. Labs are optional and are held on Saturdays 10am-2pm.
Who should take this course?
This course is designed for entry level system engineers, networks administrators and help desk technicians who configure, support, and troubleshoot networks
MCSA: Enterprise Network Support Technician, Network+ or equivalent experience.
Textbook: purchase at the Rockville Campus Bookstore and bring to the first class.
This module covers Introduction to Networks (RS1) and Routing and Switching Essentials (RS2).
RS1 introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and computer networks. The principles of IP addressing and fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced. RS2 describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality.
By the end of this module, you will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes. You will also be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
Class hours: 100
CCNA Routing & Switching- Module 2
This course covers Scaling Networks (RS3) and Connecting Networks (RS4)
RS3 describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a large and complex network. Learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. RS4 discusses the WAN technologies and network services required by converged applications in a complex network. The course enables you to understand the selection criteria of network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements. Learn how to configure and troubleshoot network devices and resolve common issues with data link protocols.
By the end of this module, you will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, STP, and VTP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. You will develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network, and skills needed to implement IPSec and virtual private network (VPN) operations in a complex network.
Class hours: 84
Module 2 starts in January 2015
