Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices (ICND): Part 2

Route/Switch, Technology

Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) v3.0 is a five-day, instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks.

Course Description

Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) v3.0 is a five-day, instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks. In addition, this course prepares learners for Cisco CCNA certification.

You learn to perform fundamental skills including Quality of Service (QoS) elements and understanding their applicability, how virtualized and cloud services interact and impact enterprise networks and, you will cover an overview of network programmability and the related controller types and tools that are available to support software defined network architectures.

A full suite of labs have been developed using the virtual IOS environment with flexible topologies that reinforce concepts with hands-on, guided discovery and challenge labs that align to each lesson module.
