Course Objectives

Cisco ISCW 1.0: Network Connectivity

  • recognize the IIN and the SONA architectural framework.

  • recognize the typical remote connections that an enterprise network has to support, the challenges of connecting the teleworker, and the Business-Ready Teleworker solution.
  • identify basic cable technology terms, standards organizations, and RF signaling terms.
  • recognize how data services are delivered over an HFC architecture, the various cable components and their issues, and how a cable modem is provisioned to work in a SOHO of a subscriber using TCP/IP.
  • identify the features, types, and distance limitations of DSL.
  • recognize ADSL technology, how it coexists with traditional telephony service, and its encapsulation types.
  • recognize how data is transmitted over ADSL using PPPoE and PPPoA.
  • specify the Cisco Enterprise Architecture, how to provision a cable modem, and how to establish the discovery stage of a PPPoE session in a given scenario.
