Subject Title
Cisco Networking Academy Training I

Subject Description
This subject covers two of the four semesters of Cisco Networking Academy training. Semester 1 covers basic data communication concepts with a hands-on approach. Semester 2 covers more advanced data communications topics, including TCP/IP and routing. Basic and advanced router configuration and  advanced switch configuration is covered in this semester.

Credit Status
1 credit in the CTY Program.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

1. Choose the appropriate IP routing protocol and features based on convergence, overhead, and topology, identify IP routing pathologies and issues and how to avoid them

2. Demonstrate an understanding of LAN networking technologies and concepts such as OSI, LANs, Desktop Protocols (IP), with emphasis on Cisco-supported technologies

3. Demonstrate an understanding of the steps for designing internetwork solutions; analyze a client's business and technical requirements, the issues facing designers and list resources for further information and select appropriate internetwork technologies and topologies

4. Use modular design and summarization features to design scalable Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) internetworks and allocate IP addresses in contiguous blocks so that OSPF summarization can be used

5. Determine EIGRP convergence time for various internetwork configurations and use IGRP for path determination in IP internetworks

6. Demonstrate an understanding of how to design and build simple networks and to configure Cisco routers and switches with emphasis on Routing Protocols (RIP, EIGRP)

7. Define the goals of internetwork design and construct an internetwork design that meets a client's objectives for internetwork design, functionality, performance, and cost

8. Define switches, virtual LANs, and LAN emulation, examine a client's requirements and construct an appropriate switched campus LAN design solution

9. Define routing functions and benefits, examine a client's requirements and construct an appropriate campus LAN design solution that includes switches and routers

10. List common reasons why customers invest in a campus LAN design project, examine statements made by them and distinguish the relevant issues that will affect the choice of campus LAN design solutions

11. Choose the appropriate IP addressing scheme based on technical requirements, identify IP addressing issues and how to work around them

12. Identify the origin of design models used in the subject and define the hierarchical model
