Cisco® Implementing and Operating Cisco® Enterprise Network Core Technologies v1.0 (ENCOR)

Introduction:

The Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) v1.0 course gives you the knowledge and skills needed to configure, troubleshoot, and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks. You’ll also learn to implement security principles within an enterprise network and how to overlay network design by using solutions such as SD-Access and SD-WAN. This course helps you prepare to take the 350-401 Implementing Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) exam, which is part of four new certifications: CCNP Enterprise CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure CCIE Enterprise Wireless Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Core

Who Should Attend
Mid-level network engineers, Network administrators, Network support technicians, Help desk technicians

Course Objectives
After taking this course, you should be able to:
Illustrate the hierarchical network design model and architecture using the access, distribution, and core layers
