CCNAXv3 - Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Accelerated v3.0 (CCNAX)

All SLI Scheduled Dates Are Guaranteed to Run!

The Cisco CCNA curriculum includes a third course, Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX), consisting of Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) content in its entirety, but with the content merged into a single course. Overlapping content between ICND1 and ICND2 is eliminated and content is rearranged for the purpose of the course flow.
Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX), is an instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify a basic IPv4 and IPv6 network, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring an IP router, connecting to a WAN, and identifying basic security threats. Also covers topics in more depth and teaches learners how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks, preparing learners for Cisco CCNA certification.
Key additions to this latest revision include an understanding of Quality of Service (QoS) elements and their applicability, how virtualized and cloud services will interact and impact enterprise networks, and an overview of network programmability with the related controller types and tools that are available to support software defined network architectures.
Also included is the understanding of the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security 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.
