Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1 (ICND1 v3) is a 5-day, instructor-led training course that teaches learners how to install, operate, configure, and verify basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks, including configuring a LAN switch, configuring a router, connecting to a WAN, and identifying basic security threats.
This course will enable students to gain a deeper understanding of QoS, virtualization and cloud services, and network programmability related to WAN, access and core segments. It will provide the foundational understanding of network layers 1-3 that are applicable to core routing and switching plus other advanced technologies.
ICND1 v3 includes major updates to previous versions of this class and aligns to an updated blueprint provided by Cisco.
Several topics have been added including; understanding the interactions and network functions of firewalls, wireless controllers and access points, along with additional focus on IPv6 and basic network security. The configuration commands are introduced through examples and supported with lab exercises. 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. Upon completing this course, you will be able to meet these objectives:
This course can be followed by the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) v3 course, which covers topics in more depth and teaches learners how to perform basic troubleshooting steps in enterprise branch office networks.
