Introduction

Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices: Accelerated Training (CCNAX) v3.0 Course with Hands-on Labs (Online, Onsite and Classroom Live)

Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated Training (CCNAX) v3.0 will teach you 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. You will also learn how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks, preparing you 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.

New Exam: 200-125

**The CCNA Routing and Switching certification is valid for three years, at such time you will need to recertify. For detailed information, view the recertification policy for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification program.
