Understanding the packet delivery process is a fundamental part of understanding networking devices. You must understand host-to-host communications to administer a network. This course provides a step-by-step analysis of host-to-host communications and the packet-delivery process over a routed network. The course also illustrates the role of Layer 2 and Layer 3 addresses in packet delivery, as well as the role of ARP. Routing is the process by which a packet moves from one location to another. In the terms of computer networks, it is the process of determining where to send data packets destined for addresses outside of the local network. To effectively manage an IP network, you must understand how both static and dynamic routing operate and the impact that they have on IP networks. This course compares static and dynamic routes, illustrates the steps for static route configuration and verification, and demonstrates the difference between setting up next hop IP and exit interface for default routes.

Target Audience
Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 1 is essential for students preparing for the CCNA Routing and Switching or CCENT certifications. Students pursuing the CCNA Routing and Switching certification should complete parts 1 & 2 of the ICND learning path. Students pursuing the CCENT certification need only attend part 1 of the ICND curriculum. Anyone wishing to obtain Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) 100-101 certification that validates the knowledge and skills required to successfully install, operate, and troubleshoot small to medium size enterprise branch network. Network administrators, network engineers, network managers, network designers, and project managers. Familiarity of navigating PC operating systems, the Internet, and basic IP addressing knowledge skills recommended.
