Description

Cisco Packet Tracer is a network simulator that can be utilized in training for Network certifications such as CompTia Network+ and Cisco CCENT or CCNA Certification Exams. The software allows students to create virtual networks with many different networking devices from switches, routers, end user devices and even systems integration devices such as security cameras, motion sensors, lights, and alarms. 

Like all of my courses - You will LEARN BY DOING which is absolutely the best way to learn networking. I will not only thoroughly go over the Cisco Packet tracer Application but I will also give you the opportunity to follow along with me and build some simple Switching and Routing Labs, and we will briefly discuss some networking fundamentals so you understand what is it we are building!

In addition to traditional networking labs, I will also show you how to set up a lab for any of you System Integrations folks joining this course so you can take full advantage of this powerful application.

Hope you enjoy!
Keith

Introduction
3 Lectures 34:09

This lecture will walk you through the benefits of Cisco Packet Tracer, who should make Packet Tracer part of their training regiment, and some alternative solutions.

Preview 11:11

This description will give you the information you need to be able to navigate around in cisco packet tracer so you are aware of where different features are located as you move forward with your cisco studies.

Navigating the GUI
08:48

This lecture will guide you through on how to actually start using cisco packet tracer and how to work with different networking devices inside of the workspace.

Building a Logical Layer 2 Lab in Packet Tracer
3 Lectures 38:48

In this lecture you will learn how to add devices to your workspace and build a network topology inside of cisco packet tracer. This will be the start of the lab we build moving through the rest of this course.

Setting up a Layer 2 Lab
17:08

In this lecture you will learn how to configure End User Devices within cisco packet tracer and you will learn some simple administrative tasks on those devices.

End User Device Configurations
10:26

In this lecture you will begin to get a crash course on how to capture traffic inside of cisco packet tracer which is a huge tool that you can utilize for your networking studies. Along with just talking about how to capture the traffic, you will also learn some basic information about Broadcast Domains and how the ARP protocol is used.

Building a Logical Layer 3 Lab in Packet Tracer
3 Lectures 30:53

In this lecture you will set up a layer 3 lab by adding a router into our network topologies.

Preview 08:11

In this lecture you will learn how to configure a simple router network and configuring the interfaces on a router so that we can communicate two networks, or broadcast domains, together!

Base Router Configurations
11:33

In this video you will go over how to capture traffic again using cisco packet tracers packet simulator, but this time we will talk about the information your seeing at a layer 3 perspective. We will briefly go over some minor details pertaining to data encapsulation and broadcast domains so you have a better understanding of what the information is inside of these packet captures.

Hello everyone, Im Keith and I have been working in the IT industry for a little over 10 years now, working for both small companies and large fortune 500 companies. Working for a variety of companies in different industries has allowed me to gain a great insight on the important roles and responsibilities in the networking industry. Being in IT is a fun, but at times, challenging career. Technology is always evolving so it is important to stay well educated in many domains so you can grow with the technology and keep a strong, secure, and healthy network. 

I began teaching in 2015 in small classroom environments, for different consulting jobs I had. That has lead me to dive into the world of online education which I only hope grows so I can help educate those who are eager to learn the material to be successful in today's technologically advanced industries.
