Cisco ICND1 1.1: The Packet Delivery Process, Router Security, and Remote Access

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


Understanding the packet delivery process is a fundamental part of understanding how Cisco networking devices work. Once you have an understanding of how data travels in your network, securing and managing your resources is paramount. This course describes the process of packet delivery and then goes on to discuss data security, particularly how this is handled by Cisco’s Router and Security Device Manager. This course then goes on to describe some of the ways resources are managed, such as DHCP for addressing and the use of remote access tools to perform configuration and maintenance tasks.
