ICND 1 and ICND 2 Courses

ICND 1 and ICND 2 courses cover fundamental knowledge in the area of the network engineering, which is seen as necessary for future administrators and network engineers. The courses are designed to train attendees in practical work on the network equipment (primarily routers and L2 and L3 switches), with understanding of the technology itself. The topics covered encompass: TCP/IP, Ethernet, IPv4 and IPv6 protocols, IP addressing, LAN, VLAN, WLAN & WAN technologies, Cisco IOS operational system, switching, routing, routing protocols, etc. Basic network services such as DHCP, DNS, and NAT are also covered. The courses are a good starting base in preparation for Cisco CCNA certification, and no previous knowledge is necessary if one wishes to take such a course.

Configuration of basic and advanced Cisco Security services

Configuration of basic and advanced Cisco Security services is part of the courses that cover implementation of security services on Cisco devices. The courses are aimed at providing training in practical work on Cisco network equipment (Cisco ASA Firewall, Cisco IOS Zone-based Firewall, Cisco Intrusion Prevention System). The basic course addresses topics covering configuration of basic security functionalities on Cisco ASA Firewall and Cisco IOS Zone-based Firewall necessary for protection of computer networks. The advanced course puts emphasis on work on the Cisco Firewall Services Module and Cisco Intrusion Prevention systems. Both courses provide a good foundation for implementation and maintenance of security services in the computer networks. The course is accompanied by laboratory exercises with Cisco ASA Firewall, Cisco routers, and the Cisco IPS system. Basic knowledge of networks and the basics of configuration of Cisco routers and switches is required for course attendance.

IP Telephony course

The Cisco IP Telephony course is aimed at educating attendees in the most recent technologies in the IP Telephony area, so that they are ready for independent implementation of complex IP Telephony solutions. During the course, the acquired knowledge and skills in the theoretical segment are verified through laboratory exercises. The course attendees are taught configuration and resolution of possible problems that occur in daily work with IP Telephony systems and computer networks. Upon the completion of the course, the attendees are able to independently implement IP Telephony solutions that are transparent, scalable and simple to monitor and manage. No previous knowledge in the area is necessary to attend the course, however attendees should preferably have basic understanding of IP networks and protocols.

Configuration of BGP protocols on Cisco routers

The BGP course enables its attendees to acquire detailed knowledge of the BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) protocol. The BGP protocol is one of the bases of the modern internet and other widespread technologies such as MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching). The contents of the course include basics of the BGP protocol, configuration of the BGP protocol on Cisco routers based on the IOS operative system, detailed troubleshooting instructions and practical laboratory exercises that provide attendees with knowledge and skills necessary for configuration and troubleshooting of the BGP protocol in user and service provider networks. Service solutions processed within the course cover different aspects and ambiguities in relation to design and the high number of BGP functionalities. After the completion of the course, the attendees will be trained to effectively and successfully design, implement, and troubleshoot BGP protocols. No previous knowledge in the area is necessary to attend the course, however attendees should preferably have basic knowledge of IP networks and protocols.

Configuration of MPLS on Cisco IOS platforms

The course in configuration of MPLS technology on Cisco routers gives attendees theoretical and practical knowledge, from the basics of MPLS protocols through to advanced functionalities such as complex MPLS VPN networks and MPLS Traffic Engineering for establishment of redundant routes with short recovery time in service providers’ networks. The course is focused on a detailed concept of MPLS technology and applications within service providers’ networks for implementation of different services. The method of migration of classical IP networks into the MPLS environment is considered, along with the implementation of basic MPLS VPN services and complex MPLS VPN topologies. For more advanced functionalities such as Traffic EngineeringFast Reroute, and AtoM (Any Transport over MPLS), a basic review of the functioning and the manner of configuration is provided. Laboratory exercises that involve configuration of MPLS and MPLS VPN functionalities on Cisco routers are provided within the course.  Within the laboratory exercises, a service provider environment is created using MPLS and MPLS VPN technology. Attendees should have some previous corresponding knowledge such as: basic knowledge of IP networks and protocols, basic knowledge of internal routing protocols IS-IS and OSPF, and basic knowledge of the BGP routing protocol. The attendees should preferably have the CCNA or equivalent certificate level.

IP Multicast course

Multicast course enables its students to become familiar with individual blocks of Multicast technology, necessary for the successful deployments of IP multicast within a provider or customer network. Multicast is an infrastructural service for data transfer, which enables optimal use of network resources and presents a solution for applications which demand simultaneous transfer of same data to a number of different users. Some of the possible applications can be: video conferencing, audio/video live streaming, internet tv, internet radio etc. The focus of the course is a detailed concept of multicast technologies, including multicast applications, addressing, multicast routing protocols that are necessary for creation of distribution trees within an autonomous system. It also discusses the complex functionalities that include the implementation of multicast protocols between autonomous systems of a service providers and Multicast VPN service. Laboratory exercises are designed as part of the course that involve the configuration of Multicast protocols and other functionalities on Cisco routers based on the IOS operating system. After completing the course, participants will be trained to effectively and successfully implement and troubleshoot multicast protocols. For attending the course it is not needed prior knowledge of the area, but it is essential that students have a basic knowledge of IP networks and protocols.

Cisco Wireless LAN service configuration

The Wireless course offers attendees theoretical and practical knowledge in the areas of design, configuration, surveillance, and resolution of issues in wireless LAN networks. Topics addressed within this course include: basics of WLAN networks, getting to know the CUWN architecture, design, configuration, and troubleshooting of Cisco WLAN networks, and administration of Cisco Prime Infrastructure management tools. Upon completion of the course, attendees are able to implement and administer advanced Cisco WLAN solutions. No previous knowledge in the area is necessary to attend the course, however attendees should preferably have basic knowledge of IP networks and protocols.

Juniper Security course

The Juniper Security course is designed to educate attendees in the manner of functioning of the JunOs operative system and the comprehensive methods of protection of the network infrastructure using advanced security functions. Topics addressed at the course include: JunOS basics, getting to know the most known types of attacks and the methods of prevention, configuration of zones and security policies, configuration of NAT and IPS functionalities, and familiarization with the basics of NGFW options on the SRX platform. No previous knowledge of the Juniper product portfolio or Juniper OS is necessary to attend the course, however the attendees should preferably have basic understanding of IP network protection.
