CCNA, short for Cisco Certified Network Associate, is one of the premier certs in the area of networking. The topics usually covered by CCNA include TCP/IP and OSI stacks, IPv4 subnets, IP v6 addressing schemes, STP (Spanning Tree Protocol), VLANs (Virtual Local Area Networks), ACLs (Access Control Lists), routing protocols such as RIP v2, OSPF and OSPF v3, BGP, and wireless networks. The new syllabus deviated from the past very significantly. Notable deletions were RIP v2, OSPF v3, and TCP/IP fundamentals. Notable additions are WLC (Wireless Controllers, specifically Cisco WLC), DNA (Cisco Digital Network Architecture,  and network security. Candidates are expected to learn Cisco centric technologies like WLC GUI and DNA in addition to usual iOS that runs on Cisco routers and switches. DNA is the Cisco’s solution to recently emerging Open Networks Architecture.

Apart from the above, two exams track is going to be discontinued. i.e. CCENT (Cisco Certified Entry Network Technician) and ICND2 (Inter Connecting Network Devices 2) exams together used to qualify a candidate to be Cisco certified. It appears that ths track is being discontinued.

Over all, it is expected that the new exam is broader in covering various technologies including the following:

  1. Wireless Controllers
  2. Network Security
  3. DNA (Open Source project that compares with this is Open Daylight project)
  4. Router and Switch iOS

It is recommended that those who are in the middle of preparation for the existing version of CCNA (200-125) complete the same before the deadline (23rd Feb 2020) as the new objectives of the exam require lot of time and effort due to significant differences in exam topics.

Certexams.com offers the following for CCNA 200-125:

  1. CCNA Practice Tests (200-125)
  2. CCNA Network Simulator with Designer
  3. CCNA Cheatsheets
  4. CCNA Online Labs (Physical lab access)

Wish you all good luck!

CertExams -Lab rentalsCertExams.com recently started offering networking rack rentals for individuals desirous of learning computer networking technologies. The racks currently available include that of Cisco and Juniper racks. You may be aware that Certexams.com already offers netsim products for learning networking in virtual environment. One drawback of virtual product is that they do not support full command set and limited in scope. By using actual physical equipment, it is possible to feel the actual equipment and configure the same for various test cases.

The networking lab setup is ideal for candidates leaning CCNA/CCNP/Juniper networking as the majority of the labs use the equipment from these vendors. Check out the CCNA networking lab for more information on the equipment used and the network diagram.

It may be noted that the lab equipment used need not support giga or tera bit rates and hence older equipment may be used. In actual networks, due to heavy traffic demand, older equipment can’t be used which is not the case for networking labs. For this reason, the racks are available at a very reasonable price and discounts are available for training institutes and instructors. Please email us at cs (at) certexams.com for available discounts.

Though lab racks are of fixed configuration (physical connections), we can offer custom configurations, if required at additional cost.

The labs come with a detailed lab manual (or workbook) that provides various labs with instrucitons and commands and very useful for those preparing for Cisco/Juniper certs.

The complete lab setups had been automated from purchase of lab credit to booking an empty time slot, to login and working on the lab setup.

About Certexams.com: Offers network simulators, lab simulators and exam simulators for various certs like CCNA, CCNP, A+, Network+, JUNCIA, and others. Check out the website certexams.com for up to date information and available products/services.
