New! Gain the knowledge and skills needed to configure, troubleshoot and manage wired and wireless Cisco enterprise networks. This 5-day instructor-led course gives participants the knowledge and skills needed to configure, troubleshoot and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks. Students also learn to implement security principles within an enterprise network and how to overlay network design by using solutions such as SD-Access and SD-WAN. Note: this course helps learners prepare to take the 350-401; ENCOR exam, which is part of four new certifications: CCNP Enterprise, CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure, CCIE Enterprise Wireless and Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Core. 

This course will help you:

  • Configure, troubleshoot, and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks
  • Implement security principles within an enterprise network
  • Prepare you prepare to take the 350-401 Implementing Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) exam

Participants should have the following knowledge and skills before attending this course:

  • Implementation of Enterprise LAN networks
  • Basic understanding of Enterprise routing and wireless connectivity
  • Basic understanding of Python scripting
