Cisco ICND1 1.1: Routing and Cisco Routers

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Beyond connecting multiple devices in a network, the networks themselves can be connected. In fact, the Internet is a collection of networks that are connected. The concept of connected networks is a common communication infrastructure in large organizations. Connecting networks with diverse devices, architectures, and protocols requires more sophisticated components than simple LANs. Routers are the devices that are used in this more complex networking environment, and a suite of protocols that is known as TCP/IP governs how data is transmitted. This course describes the functions of routers in connecting networks, and describes how routers transmit data through networks using TCP/IP.

Target Audience

Network administrators, network engineers, network managers, network designers, and project managers; individuals seeking the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCNET) certification and those individuals targeting the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification
