The Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) v1.1 course provides the knowledge and skills needed to configure, troubleshoot, and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks. You’ll 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.
Upon completing this course, students will be able to meet these objectives:
Illustrate the hierarchical network design model and architecture using the access, distribution, and core layers.
Compare and contrast the various hardware and software switching mechanisms and operation, while defining the TCAM and CAM, along with process switching, fast switching, and Cisco Express Forwarding concepts.
Troubleshoot layer 2 connectivity using VLANs, trunking.
Implementation of redundant switched networks using spanning tree protocol.
Troubleshooting link aggregation using Etherchannel.
Describe the features, metrics, and path selection concepts of EIGRP.
Implementation and optimization of OSPFv2 and OSPFv3, including adjacencies, packet types, and areas, summarization and route filtering for IPv4 and IPv6.
Implementing EBGP interdomain routing, path selection and single and dual-homed networking.
Implementing network redundancy using protocols like HSRP and VRRP.
Implementing internet connectivity within Enterprise using static and dynamic NAT.
Describe the virtualization technology of servers, switches, and the various network devices and components.
Implementing overlay technologies like VRF, GRE, VPN and LISP.
Describe the components and concepts of wireless networking including RF, antenna characteristics, and define the specific wireless standards.
Describe the various wireless deployment models available, include autonomous AP deployments and cloud-based designs within the centralized Cisco WLC architecture.
Describe wireless roaming and location services.
Describe how APs communicate with WLCs to obtain software, configurations, and centralized management.
Configure and verify EAP, WebAuth, and PSK wireless client authentication on a WLC.
Troubleshoot wireless client connectivity issues using various tools available.
Troubleshooting Enterprise networks using services like NTP, SNMP , Cisco IOS IP SLAs, NetFlow and Cisco IOS Embedded Event Manager.
Explain the use of available network analysis and troubleshooting tools, which include show and debug commands, as well as best practices in troubleshooting.
