ICND1 3.0: Discovering Cisco IOS Routers

Anyone, from junior to senior network administrators, who is responsible for the configuration, maintenance, verification, and troubleshooting of Cisco IOS Routers and Switches.


Expected Duration
157 minutes

You will understand how a router fits into the network infrastructure, how a router makes forwarding decisions, and how to build a network diagram using IOS commands. This course introduces you to Cisco IOS Routers and focuses on their roles and functions within a network. It also covers how you can configure, manage, and verify various aspects of an IOS router. CDP (Cisco Discovery Protocol) and LLDP (Link Layer Discovery Protocol) are also discussed in this course.
