Course description

This course is 3rd in a 4 course Routing & Switching (CCNA) track. This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a larger and more complex network. Course participants learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality.
By the end of this course, participants 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.
Participants will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network.
Course participants who successfully complete the Scaling Networks course will be able to perform the following functions:
• Configure and troubleshoot DHCP and DNS operations for IPv4 and IPv6
• Understand and describe the operations and benefits of the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP)
• Configure and troubleshoot STP operations
• Understand and describe the operations and benefits of link aggregation and Cisco VLAN Trunk Protocol (VTP)
• Configure and troubleshoot VTP, STP, and RSTP
• Configure and troubleshoot basic operations of routers in a complex routed network for IPv4 and IPv6 o Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol (single-area OSPF and multi-area OSPF) o Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)
• Configure and troubleshoot advanced operations of routers and implement RIP, OSPF, and EIGRP routing protocols for IPv4 and IPv6
• Manage Cisco IOS® Software licensing and configuration files CCNA 3 - Scaling NetworksRigorous Instructor led hands-on implementation of advanced Routing Protocols and LAN Switching techniques with an emphasis on the theory supporting each technology.
• Learn about Autonomous Systems by implementing troubleshooting EIGRP, configure and troubleshoot Single Area OSPF routing scenarios and originate default routing information down through each protocol
• Advanced switching concepts are introduced emphasizing hands-on implementation of dot1q and Cisco ISL trunking to carry VLAN information for LAN segmentation, broadcast control and bandwidth optimization
• Advanced Spanning Tree concepts, configuration and troubleshooting of Root Bridge election are covered through the use of hands-on scenarios to demonstrate the switching concepts used to implement optimized LANs
