CCNA 1: Introduction to Networks

Introduction to Networks introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. The principles and structure of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. By the end of the course, you will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes.

CCNA 1: Introduction to Networks labs use a "model Internet" to allow you to analyze real data without affecting production networks. Packet Tracer activities help you analyze protocol and network operation and build small networks in a simulated environment. At the end of the course, you will build simple LAN topologies by applying basic principles of cabling, performing basic configurations of network devices, including routers and switches, and by implementing IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes.

Note: The delivery of this course was recently revised to meet the requests of participants like you. The hybrid delivery gives you access to an expert instructor with full content delivery and hands-on labs involving fewer in-person class meetings. There are three, in-person meetings that may be accessed remotely if you prefer. Nine additional live lectures will be delivered remotely. The lectures will be archived for registered participants to view asynchronously.
