Network Engineers operating in a Service Provider environment and individuals looking to achieve the Cisco Certified Network Associate SP Certification.
This 5-day course is designed to provide network engineers and technicians with the knowledge and skills required to implement and support a provider network (P-network). The course focuses on using Cisco switches and routers that are connected in LANs and WANs and that are typically found in the P-network. Upon completing this course, learners will be able to configure, verify, and troubleshoot the various Cisco networking devices. The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE Software and Cisco IOS XR Software features to operate and support the P-network.
