Train Signal – Cisco CCNA ICND2 640-816 Training


Nearly 17 hours of expert instruction with real world examples of Cisco Networking, help you achieve the second half of the new exams ( ).

You will be tested on such topics as VLSM and IPv6 addressing; extending switched networks with VLANs; configuring, verifying and troubleshooting VLANs; the VTP, RSTP, OSPF and EIGRP protocols; determining IP routes; managing IP traffic with access lists; NAT and DHCP; establishing point-to-point connections; and establishing Frame Relay connections.

Acquiring your CCNA certification can be challenging. Cisco recognizes this and has responded with a 2-step solution. By essentially splitting the CCNA into 2 exams (CCENT & ICND2), you can give your brain a break and achieve your goals at your own pace. This course focuses on complete coverage of the 640-816 ICND2 exam.
