The Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2 (ICND2) v2.0 course provides entry-level network administrators, network support, and help desk technicians with the knowledge and skills needed to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot a small enterprise network.
ICND2 v2.0 focuses on understanding redundant topologies, troubleshooting common networking issues, configuring EIGRP and multiarea OSPF in both IPv4 and IPv6, understanding WAN technologies, and becoming familiar with device management and Cisco licensing. The learner will encounter more troubleshooting and more lab time than with the previous version of ICND2.


Individuals seeking the Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching certification. The course is also appropriate for pre-sales and post-sales network engineers involved in the installation and support of enterprise branch office networks.

Implement the identified solution by applying the planned implementation processes using Cisco IOS commands and applications in the correct order to the selected devices and portions of the network.
Use the appropriate show and debug commands and applications to ensure that the solution was correctly implemented and is performing as desired.
Use the appropriate show and debug commands and applications to identify the cause of basic-level network issues and correctly implement a solution that ensures that the network is performing as desired.
Entry Level Network Engineer, Network Administrator, Network Support Technician or Help Desk Technician.

Course Objectives

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Review how to configure and troubleshoot a small network.
  • Expand the switched network from a small LAN to a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLAN, trunking and spanning tree.
  • Describe routing concepts as they apply to a medium-sized network and discuss considerations when implementing routing on the network.
  • Configure, verify, and troubleshoot OSPF.
  • Configure, verify and troubleshoot EIGRP.
  • Determine how to apply ACLs based on network requirements, and to configure, verify, and troubleshoot ACLs on a medium-sized network.
  • Describe when to use NAT or PAT on a medium-sized network, and configure NAT or PAT on routers.
  • Identify and implement the appropriate WAN technology based on network requirements
