All major companies, which are looking for networking engineers prefer CCNA certification. CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) is an online exam which deals with networking concepts like IPv4, IPv6, routers and switches.
Now for me this means that you’re the only person limiting yourself as long as there is internet. Apart from getting jobs in networking, CCNA Certification will help you in mastering routing protocols like RIP, EIGRP and OSPF. The good thing is that, this certification (CCNA) program is not restricted to a particular stream. Each person, be a students or a working professionals from various backgrounds like B.E, B.Tech, B.Sc, MCA, dIPloma can undergo training for CCNA and look for a career in networking.
The best part in getting CCNA certification is that, students get certification directly from Cisco systems, USA.
The major advantage is that any student pursuing a basic course in networking will get certified from local training institute; whereas, CCNA certification is received directly from Cisco systems, USA.
Below are Major topics covered in CCNA:
Basics of networking, OSI layers ,TCP/IP layers
Cabling • Cisco iOS • Routing and Switching • RIP/EIGRP/OSPF • VLAN • VTP • Redundancy protocols • WAN • NTP/SYSLOG • ACL • IP routing • IPv6 • IPv4
The new age CCNA Routing and Switching exam now focuses more on routing (mainly EIGRP and OSPF) then switching technologies (VLANs, STP), while high-availability technologies such as VRRP, HSRP and GLBP have made an appearance, as they are now frequently used in today’s networks and also occupy an important portion of the next certification level, CCNP Routing and Switching.we will be rolling out quiz on this blog which will cover some predicted questions in the exam as we proceed.
