About Cisco Configuration ICND1
This course focuses on providing the skills necessary to implement and support a small switched and routed network. The course starts with an introduction to networks, and then introduces host-to-host communications using TCP/IP. Next, Layer 2 devices (switches) are introduced into the network followed by Layer 3 devices (routers). The introduction of Layer 3 devices leads to the use of WANs and routing to connect to the internet and corporate sites.
For the purpose of this course, a small network is defined as 1 to 20 hosts that are connected to a single switch, with the switch running a single VLAN (VLAN1). The switch is also connected to a router providing a routed link (Routing Information Protocol [RIP]) to a simulated internet and corporate office. ICND1 works from the bottom up, providing knowledge and skills as they’re needed.
