CCNA3 Scaling Networks

CCNA3 V6 is the Scaling Networks course, which describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in larger and more complex networks. Students will learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality using physical Cisco equipment. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches, as well as being able to resolve common issues with network protocols, such as OSPF, EIGRP and STP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) in a small-to-medium network.

What will I learn?

Students will learn how to:

  • Configure Cisco Routers
  • Configure Cisco Switches
  • Implement Network Protocols such as Open Shortest Path First (OSPF),
  • Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)
  • Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
  • Secure the Network
Pre-requisite Knowledge/Qualifications

Prior completion of CCNA1 Introduction to Networking, and CCNA 2 Routing and Switching or equivalent network training is highly recommended.

Career Opportunities

Successful completion of CCNA3 course will prepare you to do CCNA 4 Connecting Networks and sit the CISCO Certified Network Associate (CCNA) official exam, which is a universally recognised qualification and in demand as the industry standard for network administration and network design and troubleshooting.

Recommended follow-up courses

Normal progression would be to continue to CCNA 4 Connecting Networks. Students should successfully complete CCNA 3 final exam before progress to the CCNA 4 course.
