CCNA Routing and Switching Course

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching is a certification program for entry-level network engineers that augments your investment in foundational networking knowledge and increase the value of your employers' network. CCNA Switching and Routing is for Network Administrators, Network Specialists and Network Support Engineers with one to three years of experience. The CCNA Switching and Routing validates the ability to design, install, work, and troubleshoot medium-size switched and routed networks.

For network engineers who need to hike their value to employers and stay updated with advances in networking skills and knowledge, the Cisco CCNA Switching and Routing certification program facilitates the training and education required for monitoring, installing and troubleshooting network infrastructure designed by the business pioneer in IP networking field.

The CCNA Switching and Routing course is a initial step to entry-level networking jobs and IT career. The educational module comprises of 4, 70-hour courses: Introduction to Networks, Switching and Routing Essentials, Scaling Networks, and Connecting Networks. The initial 2 courses train you up to examine CCNA Security or for the Cisco CCENT certification exam.

Course 1 – Introduction to Networks – Introduces the structure, architecture, functions, models and components of the Internet and other computer networks.

Course 2 – Switching and Routing Essentials – Describes components, architecture, and operation of routers and switches in a network.

Course 3 – Scaling Networks - Describes components, architecture, and operation of routers and switches in a complex and larger network.

Course 4 – Connecting Networks – Discusses network services and the WAN technologies required by converged applications in a complex networks.

Each of the 4 courses are prescribed before taking the Cisco CCNA Switching and Routing certification exam.

·         Build up a working knowledge of switching, routing, network applications, administrations and protocols.

·         Study with a teacher in the classroom and access expert’s content online anytime.

·         Practice what you study on both Cisco Packet Tracer (a network configuration simulation tools) and real equipment.

·         Get quick feedback on your work through inherent tests and quizes.

·         Plan for the workplace with collaborative presentations and projects.

·         Associate with the worldwide Cisco Networking Academy group.

CCNA Switching and Routing educational module fabricates the skills you have to get procured and succeed in jobs related networking gadgets, computers and things. Whether you're planning for your first job or practicing for higher study, CCNA is an extraordinary foundation.

Different Types Of Switches In Networking

Switches are computer networking devices which connects devices together on a computer network to keep the users connected and allow the smooth transfer of data. Switches are an integral part of networking infrastructure both at private and professional or business level. Therefore at Acit Mumbai, students aspiring to become IT professional are trained in different types of switches such as:

LAN Switch

LAN switches are used in local area networks(LAN) and also known as active hubs. It is an example of Ethernet switches in which device is used to connect separate nodes on a company’s internal LAN. These nodes are connection points which are typically computer systems used in an office.

Unmanaged Network Switches

Unmanaged network switches do not need to be configured and hence are simple and easy to set up. They only require small cable connections which allow devices on the network to connect with each other for example computer to computer or printer to computer in one location. Unmanaged switches are favorably used by home networks and small companies and businesses.

Managed Network Switches

Managed network switches have one or more interfaces to allow the configuring, and managing and monitoring of the switch’s operations. The ability to be customized enhances the functions of managed network switches as well as gives one greater control over data flow.

Smart Switches

Smart switches are a type of managed network switches which have limited set of management features. They fall between unmanaged and managed network switches and provide web based interface. Smart switches require configurations of basic settings such as virtual LAN or VLANs, port-bandwidth and duplex.

Enterprise Managed Switches

Enterprise managed switches are fully managed switches which have wide range of management features that can be modified. The large number of adjustable settings that constantly needs to be managed and monitored makes these most expensive than traditional switches. These switches are most suitable to be used in large companies due to its size and complexity.

For those looking to become IT professionals, Acit Institute offers various professional courses designed to provide in-depth knowledge and training to assist them in the pursuit of their dream to become successful in IT industry.
