Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR)

 

Course Overview

The Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) v1.3 training gives you the knowledge and skills needed to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot an enterprise network and introduces you to overlay network design by using SD-Access and SD-WAN solutions. You’ll also learn to understand and implement security principles and automation and programmability within an enterprise network.
How You'll Benefit

This training will help you:

Configure and implement identified solutions by applying planned implementation processes using Cisco IOS Software commands and applications. Verify appropriate show and debug commands and applications to ensure correct solution implementation and performance. Troubleshoot appropriate show and debug commands and applications to identify the cause of basic-level network issues and correctly implement a solution that ensures that the network is performing as desired.

This course has 5 ILT days with 3 additional self-study days (3 days of content to be covered by the student in their own time).

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:
