Second of a three-course sequence to prepare the student to take the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification exam. Cisco Routing and Switching implements the Cisco Academy online curriculum, CCNA 5.0, Routing and Switching Essentials, developed by Cisco Systems experts. Explores switch VLANs, trunks and lnter-VLAN routing, 1Pv4 and 1Pv6 static and dynamic routing, OSPFv2 and OSPFv3, DHCP and DNS for 1Pv4 and 1Pv6, NAT, and access-lists for 1Pv4 and 1Pv6. The lecture/lab environment allows the student the opportunity to practice skills learned throughout the term.
