Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) 640-822 ICND1

Course Title: Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices - Part 1

Course Code: ICND1 640-822
Duration: 5 Days

Course Overview

The Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices - Part 1 (ICND1) Cisco training course has been designed for those undertaking the 640-822 ICND1 exam. It provides the essential skills and knowledge required to install, operate and troubleshoot a small branch office Enterprise network. This includes configuring a switch, router, connecting to a WAN, and implementing network security. On successful completion of this course the candidate will be able to install and configure a small branch office network under supervision.

Target Audience

Candidates who should consider attending the ICND1 640-822 Cisco training course are System Engineers who install, operate and troubleshoot a small branch office Enterprise network. This course is suitable for individuals new to networking, particularly those who are looking to start their Cisco Career Certification (CCC) accreditation. This course would be highly beneficial for anyone taking either the 640-822 ICND1 or 640-802 CCNA exams.

Course Objectives

On successfully completing the ICND1 640-822 course candidates will be able to:
  • Describe how networks function, identify major components and have knowledge of the Open System Interconnection (OSI) reference model
  • Using the host-to-host packet delivery process, describe issues related to increasing traffic on an Ethernet LAN and identify switched LAN technology solutions to Ethernet networking issues
  • Describe the reasons for extending the reach of a LAN and the methods that can be used with focus on RF wireless access
  • Describe the reasons for connecting networks with routers and how routed networks transmit data through networks using TCP/IP
  • Describe the function of Wide Area Networks (WANs), the major devices of WANs and configure PPP encapsulation, static and dynamic routing, PAT and RIP routing
  • Use the command-line interface to discover neighbours on the network and managing the router`s startup and configuration

Course Prerequisites

Candidates attending the ICND1 640-822 Cisco training course are recommended to have a good working knowledge of computers and a basic understanding of the OSI networking model before attending his course however this is not essential. We also offer an introductory course Understanding Networking Fundamentals which should be considered before attending this course.

Testing and Certification

The ICND1 Cisco training course is the recommended preparation for the 640-822 ICND1 exam. Passing the ICND1 640-822 exam results in the award of the Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT) certification. ICND2 is recommended for further study and successful completion of both the ICND1 (640-822) and the ICND2 (640-816) exams results in award of the Cisco Certified Network Administrator (CCNA) certification.
