Cisco 200-125 CCNA Routing and Switching Exam Preparation (CCNAX)

Video description

This video series prepares you to pass the Cisco 200-125 CCNA Routing and Switching exam. It's designed for learners with basic IP address knowledge and a good understanding of network fundamentals. The course explains the routing and switching concepts required to run small- to medium-sized enterprise branch networks. Topics include the operation, installation, and configuration of basic IPv4 and IPv6 networks; the configuration of LAN routers and switches; and the fundamentals of network troubleshooting and security.

  • Master the knowledge required to pass the Cisco 200-125 exam
  • Learn to build LANs, establish internet connectivity, and troubleshoot IP connectivity
  • Explore VLANs, trunking, spanning tree, OSPF, and device management
  • Understand the characteristics, functions, and components of a WAN
  • Discover the basics of QoS, virtualization, and cloud services
  • Learn about network programmability related to WANs, access, and core segments
