Cisco Certified Network Associate in Service Provider Operations (CCNA SP Operations) validates basic knowledge and skills in a prescriptive troubleshooting environment within carrier class IP NGN core network infrastructure. CCNA SP Operations curriculum includes incident (event), fault, configuration, change, and performance management procedures, along with NMS tools and protocols
The Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks, Part 2 course is associated with the CCNA Service Provider certification. The course is a 5-day Instructor Lead Training course that provides network engineers and technicians the knowledge and skills necessary to implement and support a service provider network. The course provides knowledge of the major components of a service provider network construction and the Cisco service provider IP NGN architecture. The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills for deploying Cisco IOS / IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR software features to operate and support service provider networks.
Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:
- Present a unified view of a service provider network in relation to Cisco IP NGN architecture.
- Implement and verify VLANs and trunking. Configure HSRP, VRRP, and GLBP. Configure and verify OSPF and IS-IS, and describe MPLS LDP.
- Describe the basics of link state routing protocols. Describe the operation and configuration of single area OSPF (including load balancing and authentication), IS-IS, common issues with IS-IS, and approach for troubleshooting problems.
- Configure basic BGP to enable inter-domain routing in a service provider network Describe ACL and IP address translation.
- Describe the fundamentals of Cisco IOS XR, and IOS XE software technology.
