Cisco® Implementing and Operating Cisco® Enterprise Network Core Technologies v1.1 (ENCOR)

The goal of this course is to develop the core networking skills needed to configure, troubleshoot, and manage Enterprise wired and wireless networks. It also requires you to understand and implement security principles within the Enterprise networks and introduces you to overlay network design by using solutions like SD-Access and SD-WAN. The course also lays focus implementing on automation and programmability in Enterprise networks. This course consists of 5 days of instructor led training, plus the equivalent of 3 days of self-paced training. This course includes post class lab access- a total of 60 hours of labs over a 90 day period.
