Virtual ClassroomLearning Style
5 DaysCourse Duration
About this course:
An enterprise network is an enterprise's communications backbone that helps connect computers and related devices across departments and workgroup networks, facilitating insight and data accessibility. An enterprise network is also known as a corporate network. Cisco Prime Infrastructure is a unified solution that allows students to manage the network, devices, applications, and users from one place thus simplifying the management of both wired and wireless networks. It also simplifies the management of wireless and wired networks. It offers Day 0 and 1 provisioning, as well as Day N assurance from the branch to the data center. We call it One Management. This five day course is designed to establish a strong foundation in managing the full range of Cisco wired and wireless infrastructure using Prime Infrastructure v3.0.
During this course students will explore the Application Visibility and Control capabilities of Prime Infrastructure through monitoring and troubleshooting problems on the network. This course puts the student in the context of a realistic customer scenario and covers every aspect of Cisco Prime Infrastructure Lifecycle management approach. Students will create sites and maps, deploy configurations, perform device discover, as well as set alarms and troubleshoot network and application issues.
The average salary for a Cisco Certified Network Administrator is $84,000 per year.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
- Describe the architecture, licensing, migration capabilities, assurance, compliance features, and setup of Cisco Prime Infrastructure v3.1
- Identify the pre-deployment and design tasks in the design lifecycle phase
- Describe how to deploy device configurations with Cisco Prime Infrastructure
- Examine the different available templates and their capabilities and how to create configurations and deploy them using these templates
- Describe roles of operations workforce and applicable features of Cisco Prime
- Perform device discover and configuration tasks
- Explore the monitoring and management capabilities of Cisco Prime Infrastructure
