Overview/Description
Cisco VPN solutions provide an Internet-based WAN infrastructure for connecting branch offices, home offices, business partner sites, and remote telecommuters to all or portions of a company network. With cost-effective, high-bandwidth Internet connectivity that is secured by encrypted VPN tunnels, you can reduce WAN bandwidth costs while increasing connectivity speeds. This course describes the benefits of VPN implementation. GRE is a tunneling protocol that can encapsulate a wide variety of protocol packet types inside IP tunnels, creating a virtual point-to-point link to Cisco routers at remote points over an IP internetwork. By connecting multiprotocol subnetworks in a single-protocol backbone environment, IP tunneling using GRE enables network expansion across a single-protocol backbone environment. This course describes GRE tunneling, as well as how to configure and verify a GRE tunnel.

Target Audience
Anyone wishing to obtain Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) 200-120 certification that validates the knowledge and skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a medium-sized network, including connecting to a WAN and implementing network security. Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 (200-101 ICND2) is an essential course for students preparing for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification or the ICND2 certification. Students pursuing the CCNA Routing and Switching certification should attend parts 1 & 2 of the ICND course. Network administrators, network engineers, network managers, network designers, and project managers. Familiarity with network fundamentals, implementing local area networks, Internet connectivity, managing network device security, implementing WAN connectivity and basic IPv6 connectivity is recommended.
