Catalog Description:
Untitled document
Scaling Networks (CCNA 3) is the third of the four courses that prepares students for the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) certification. This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a large and complex network. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with single and multi-area Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), in both Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and IPv6 networks.

Prerequisites/Corequisites:
Course Completion of CS 82.21B


Recommended Preparation:
Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100
