Course Description

The Understanding Cisco Service Provider Network Foundations (SPFNDU) course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of service provider network technologies and architectures. This course focuses on teaching the foundational knowledge and skills required to build and maintain service provider networks using Cisco technologies. Through theoretical lectures, hands-on lab exercises, and real-world case studies, students will learn about service provider network components, protocols, network infrastructure, service provisioning, and troubleshooting techniques.

Prerequisites

  • Basic understanding of networking concepts, including TCP/IP, routing, and switching.
  • Familiarity with network protocols, such as OSPF, BGP, and MPLS.
  • Knowledge of Cisco routers and switches.
  • Access to a computer with Cisco IOS routers and switches.

Methodology

The course will employ a blended learning approach, combining theoretical lectures, hands-on lab sessions, and real-world case studies. The lectures will provide comprehensive explanations of service provider network technologies and architectures, while the lab sessions will allow students to gain practical experience by configuring and troubleshooting Cisco routers and switches. Real-world case studies will be used to showcase the application of learned concepts in service provider network environments.
