CCNA Courses

CIS 83  (CCNA 3 & 4 )  Scaling Networks and Connecting Networks)

This course discusses the fundamental of networking protocols and processes, building an in depth understanding and a foundation in these protocols. This course includes Ethernet, IP, subnetting, ARP, TCP/IP (including TCP, UDP, DNS, DHCP, ICMP), LANs, switching, wireless LANs, packet forwarding, encapsulation, and the interoperability between the protocols.

This course discusses the fundamental of routing and switching essentials along with addional routing protocols. This course discusses switching concepts. securing the switch, VLANs, VLAN trunks, routing concepts, EIGRP for IPv4 and IPv6, OSPF for IPv4 and IPv6, static routing for IPv4 and IPv6, ACLs, and Inter-VLAN routing.

NOTE: I have not taught this course in a few years but my materials are still available. The presentations for the routing protocol chapters are available in CIS 82. For more current information for this course please visit Gerlinde Brady's web site: http://www.cabrillo.edu/~gbrady/cis83.htm

CCNP Courses

CCNP ROUTE version 7 includes several major updates. Some older topics have been removed or simplified, while several new IPv6 routing topics have been added. Course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS Software Release 15 and technically updated. The course prepares students for the CCNP ROUTE exam 300-101. This course teaches students how to implement, monitor, and maintain routing services in an enterprise network. Students will learn how to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex enterprise LAN and WAN routing solutions, using a range of routing protocols in IPv4 and IPv6 environments. The focus will be on EIGRP, OSPF and BGP. The course also covers the configuration of secure routing solutions and optimizing routing for different environments. Comprehensive labs emphasize hands-on learning and practice to reinforce configuration skills.

CCNP is now being offered as a collaboration between Cabrillo College, Ohlone College and Mission College in both an in-person and online format. Students can take all three CCNP courses from this team of colleges.

CCNP courses will:

     •     Separate yourself from CCNA level students

     •     Help prepare you for the CCNA exam

     •     Give you the knowledge and skills desired by today's IT departments

The Cisco CCNP curriculum is designed for students seeking career oriented, enterprise-level networking skills. CCNP helps students develop the skills needed to succeed in ICT-related degree and diploma programs and prepare for the Cisco CCNP certification. It provides a theoretically rich, hands-on learning experience covering advanced routing, switching, and troubleshooting skills. CCNP provides a next step for CCNA students who want to build on their CCNA-level skill set to further a career in computer networking. CCNP equips students with the knowledge and skills needed to plan, implement, secure, maintain, and troubleshoot converged enterprise networks. The CCNP curriculum was designed to reflect the job skills and responsibilities that are associated with professional-level job roles such as network engineer, systems engineer, network support engineer, network administrator, network consultant , and system integrator. The CCNP curriculum consists of three courses: CCNP ROUTE: Implementing IP Routing, CCNP SWITCH: Implementing IP Switching, and CCNP TSHOOT: Maintaining and Troubleshooting IP Networks.

This course surveys the fields of study within computer science and computer technology with a focus on computer literacy in the 21st century. Topics covered include: hardware, software, development systems, the Internet, and networks, including PC and Macintosh.

Previous Course Materials

NOTE: This course is no longer taught but the materials are still available. This aligns with the obsoleted Implementing Secure Converged WANs (ISCW) 642-825 exam. This course covers advanced skills required to secure and enhance services in enterprise networks for teleworkers and remote sites. It focuses on securing remote access, VPN client configuration and other topics including Mulit-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), IPsec, Cisco device hardening, IOS firewall features, and IOS threat defense features.

NOTE: I have not taught this course in a few years but my materials are still available. This course discusses the fundamentals of Wireless LANs (WLAN) including wireless fundamentals, 802.11 protocol and standards, 802.11 MAC, medium access mechanisms, DCF operations, RTS/CTS, 802.11 technologies including FHSS, DSSS, OFDM, ERP; 802.11 a, b, g and others; station connectivity and association, access point configuration, antenna systems, security and site surveys.
