About this Unit
This unit extends on the work undertaken in the prerequisite unit and provides students with an in-depth explanation on the role of the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students will configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPng, single- area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. This is the second of three units that prepares the student for industry based networking certification (CCNA).
