Networks 1 (ECNS 115)
CCNA Exploration Routing Protocols and Concepts is the first of four courses leading to the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) designation. CCNA 1 introduces Cisco Networking Academy Program students to the fundamental networking concepts and technologies. It provides a theoretically-rich, hands on introduction to networking and the Internet. As the course title states, the focus of this course is on learning the fundamentals of networking. In this course, you will learn both practical and conceptual skills that build the foundation for understanding basic networking. First, you will examine human versus network communication and see the parallels between them. Next, you will be introduced to the two major models used to plan and implement networks: OSI and TCP/IP. You will gain an understanding of the “layered” approach to networks and examine the OSI and TCP/IP layers in detail to understand their functions and services. You will become familiar with the various network devises, network addressing schemes and, finally, the types of media used to carry data across the network.In this course, you will gain experience using networking utilities and tools, such as Packet Tracer and Wireshark, to explore networking protocols and concepts. These tools will help you to develop an understanding of how data flows in a network. A special “model Internet” is also used to provide a test environment where a range of network services and data can be observed and analyzed. Typically Offered Fall Only
