For those who are working towards full qualification with the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) course, this semester in Scaling Networks is the third stage out of four in the programme and will continue to develop your skills and expertise in Cisco Internetworking. It’s ideal for those currently working or looking for employment as a network engineer.

During this semester, you’ll get an introduction to scaling networks, focusing on the architecture, components and operations of routers and switches in a large and complex network. You will learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality and develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network.

By the end of this course, you will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches, as well as resolving common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, STP, and VTP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
