Many WAN connectivity options exist today. Network engineers need to understand these WANs and their capabilities when selecting a provider. Today’s WANs have become increasingly flexible in regards to supporting legacy technologies across the modern backbone so that a single WAN solution can provide support for data connectivity as well as providing support for more traditional or legacy requirements. This course covers traditional WAN connectivity options and newer options for traditional WAN emulation. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Cisco exam Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks Part 1 exam (640-875 SPNGN1). This exam counts toward the CCNA Service Provider certification.
This course is targeted at networking engineers who must interface with Cisco IOS, IOS XR and IOS XE devices. Additionally, those who have a need to understand technologies used in the service provider realm will benefit.
