Why is CCNA Important?

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.

  Although the certification comes in four categories, CCENT, CCNA, CCNP and CCIE, There is good news for everyone around the world, and that is the fact that as long as world of internet remains, anyone, searching for jobs. CCNA which seems to be among the first two category will help you in getting the desired job in topmost IT companies.

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.

Many companies which are into new technologies like Big Data, Cloud Computing need network engineers for implementing these high end technologies. Big companies likes of Cisco, Google, Amazon have already initiated efforts in cloud computing.

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.
