Cisco ICND1

This ICND1 class is a 5 day class that is presented by Cisco training partners to their end customers. Channel Partners nationwide hire proven AMS Subject Matter Expert Cisco Certified Systems Instructors (CCSI’s) to teach on-site or on-line classes.

This class provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to implement and support a small switched and routed network. In this class, a small network is defined as 1-20 hosts connected to a single switch with the switch running a single VLAN. The switch is also connected to a router that is providing a routed link (RIP & default) to a simulated Internet and corporate office.

This class provides an introduction to networking and it moves to introduce host-to-host communications using TCP/ IP. Then Layer 2 devices (switches, etc.) are introduced into the network. Next Layer 3 devices (routers) are introduced into the network. The introduction of Layer 3 devices leads to the use of WANs and routing to connect the site to the Internet and corporate sites. Finally, device management skills (CDP, TFTP, etc.) are introduced.

This class is suited for Network Administrators, Network Engineers, Network Managers, and System Engineers.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
  • Describe how networks function, identifying major components, function of network components and the Open System Interconnection (OSI) reference model.
  • Using the host-to-host packet delivery process, describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN and identify switched LAN technology solutions to Ethernet networking issues.
  • Describe the reasons for extending the reach of a LAN and the methods that can be used with a focus on RF wireless access.
  • Describe the reasons for connecting networks with routers and how routed networks transmit data through networks using TCP/ IP.
  • Describe the function of Wide Area Networks (WANs), the major devices of WANs, and configure PPP encapsulation, static and dynamic routing, PAT and RIP routing.
  • Use the command-line interface to discover neighbors on the network and managing the router’s startup and configuration.

Students should have basic computer literacy, basic Windows navigation skills, basic Internet usage skills, and basic e-mail usage skills.
