?What does a network administrator need to know to support their network?? The answer to this question depends on the size and complexity of their network. Fortunately, regardless of size and complexity of the network, the starting point for learning to support a network is the same. This course is intended to be that starting point. ICND1 v1.0 focuses on providing the skills and knowledge necessary to implement and support a small switched and routed network. For the purpose of this course, a small network is defined as 1-20 hosts connected to a single switch with the switch running a single VLAN. The switch is also connected to a router that is providing a routed link (RIP & default) to a simulated Internet and corporate office. ICND1 v1.0 works from the bottom up providing knowledge and skills as they are needed. The course starts with an introduction to networking. It then introduces host-to-host communications using TCP/IP. Next Layer 2 devices (switches, etc.) are introduced into the network. Next Layer 3 devices (routers) are introduced into the network. The introduction of Layer 3 devices leads to the use of WANs and routing to connect the site to the Internet and corporate sites. Finally, device management skills (CDP, TFTP, etc.) are introduced. As each set of knowledge and skills is introduced, a set of labs is provided to allow the learner to reinforce these skills. A cap stone lab is provided as a final learning exercise. This lab presents the learner with a preconfigured network that matches the topology that they have used in the previous labs. A series of configurations errors have be introduced in to the lab configuration. The learner?s goal is to identify and correct these issues.

Course Objectives

Lesson objectives help students become comfortable with the course, and also provide a means to evaluate learning. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe how networks function, identifying major components, function of network components and the Open System Interconnection (OSI) reference model.
  • Using the host-to-host packet delivery process, describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN and identify switched LAN technology solutions to Ethernet networking issues.
  • Describe the reasons for extending the reach of a LAN and the methods that can be used with a focus on RF wireless access.
  • Describe the reasons for connecting networks with routers and how routed networks transmit data through networks using TCP/ IP.
  • Describe the function of Wide Area Networks (WANs), the major devices of WANs, and configure PPP encapsulation, static and dynamic routing, PAT and RIP routing.
  • Use the command-line interface to discover neighbors on the network and managing the router’s startup and configuration.
