Overview

CCNA Data Centre - Firebrand Training Official Cisco Learning Partner

This certification retired on 24th February 2020. Our closest replacement is CCNA.

On this accelerated 6-day CCNA Service Provider course, you’ll learn the skills you need to configure, implement, and troubleshoot baseline Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation networks – 40% faster than traditional training.

Using our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, your expert instructor will teach you to deploy, maintain and improve carrier-grade network infrastructures.

You’ll also learn about the major components of a service provider network construction and the Cisco service provider IP NGN architecture and how service provider networks function.

Once you've completed your training, you'll be able to deliver a scalable, optimised network, capable of rapid expansion and able to support on-going introduction of new services and other customer needs.

You’ll have 24/7 lab access, which means you can test your practical skills in deploying basic Cisco IOS / IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR software, whenever you like.
