Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 v1.0

The Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (ICND2) course focuses on providing the skills and knowledge necessary to install, operate, and troubleshoot a small to medium-size branch office Enterprise network, including configuring several switches and routers, connecting to a WAN and implementing network security.


Upon finishing this course, you will be able to:
Review how to configure and troubleshoot a small network

  • Expand the switched network from a small LAN to a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree
  • Describe routing concepts as they apply to a medium-sized network and discuss considerations when implementing routing on the network
  • Configure, verify, and troubleshoot OSPF
  • Configure, verify, and troubleshoot EIGRP
  • Determine how to apply ACLs based on network requirements, and to configure, verify, and troubleshoot ACLs on a medium-sized network
  • Describe when to use NAT or PAT on a medium-sized network and configure NAT or PAT on routers
  • Identify and implement the appropriate WAN technology based on network requirements


The ICND2 course provides the students with the fundamental knowledge needed in installation, configuration, and troubleshooting procedures required to install and configure Cisco routers and switches in medium-sized enterprise networks.


The primary audience for this course comprises network administrators, network engineers, network managers and systems engineers. Network designers, project and program managers will benefit from the course as well. The course is also recommended to all individuals preparing for CCNA certification.
