  • Good understanding of Cisco CCNA concepts
  • General IT knowledge

UPS, cables, racks, failover tests, network diagrams, troubleshooting... things that you need to know and will struggle to find in a book!

You know that passing a Cisco exam is not enough, right? You need some real world experience. I appreciate it might not be easy. That's why I came up with this unique idea and recorded a real network refresh project. I use a special action camera so you can see all details (racking, cabling etc.).

If you are CCNA certified or you are studying towards that exam, you will get a chance to see a lot of topics from your book in action. This training will show you a network refresh project step by step. When things go wrong... I keep recording. There are no hidden or preconfigured tasks here. You will see everything live!

CCNA Real World Project covers:

  • Overview of project processes
  • Network diagrams
  • MS Project
  • Replacing core Cisco switches
  • Stacking Cisco switches
  • Etherchannels
  • IP SLA and failover
  • Firewalls
  • Adding a new gigabit switch
  • Racking and cabling
  • Troubleshooting network issues
  • Failover tests
  • Logging and monitoring
  • SNMP
  • Back-ups
  • Documentation
  • UPS testing & installation
  • ...and much more

Contents and Overview

In over 6 hours of content, including 50 lectures, this course covers the full cycle of a simple network project. You will find quizzes and challenges to allow you to test your knowledge before moving to the next section.

We start from scratch discussing an existing network diagram and our expectations. I show you new devices and how to configure them.

There is a section dedicated to every single day of the project, showing you every task in detail, including hardware installation and cabling.

Check out a real Cisco project. Gain some experience today.
