Cisco CCENT/CCNA and CompTIA Network + are one of the most popular certifications out there for networking. This course does not intend to cover all the objectives of the Certifications but is only meant to help you understand some protocols at a granular level which other courses may not provide as they tend to rush through.

In this course you have a chance to learn and deep dive into some of the protocols which are most used in the networking world.

Before going forward with this course, I suggest you to read at least one networking book.

Books are boring but always the best. - my opinion !

This course will be ever evolving with many more labs and content to be added in the near future.

Most lectures are 5 - 15 minutes long, with almost no lecture being over 20 minutes in length. This is done to ensure that you can spare time out of your busy schedule and learn at a steady pace.
The content is tailor-made to include practical scenarios that you can try at home and with ZERO extra investment.

All you need is this course, a computer/phone to watch on and a computer to setup a test-bed on. I have added some Linux demos for the open source geeks out there.

There is more !
This course will get constant updates every quarter and you have ME to top it all.
Any questions related to the course are most welcome !

It's time to jump on the bandwagon with ME !

Learning is Fun and Lets make it simple !


Who is the target audience?
  • Networking beginner who wants to get his/her concepts right
  • Anyone who feels they need to learn more about networking protocols
  • Anyone who feels he/she wants to gain the knowledge rather than just the certification

What I believe in is that knowledge sharing is a way to reach immortality !

With CCNP Security, Network +, CWNA and ITIL Foundations under my belt I am a networking enthusiast with an experience of 7+ years on a wide variety of security and wireless products.

It all started, when I started to wonder why the LEDs on the switch ("box with ports" what I used to call it, back in the day) blink? What is inside this box? What does it do?

Till present, I have gained experience in the following fields and products:

7+ years of experience in networking.
> AAA - Radius and Tacacs+
> Cisco ACS 4.x-5.x, Cisco ISE, Microsoft IAS/NPS
> Basics of switching and routing
> Mojo WIPS and Access Points
> Core wireless concepts
> ASA firewall basics and Cisco VPN configuration
> Ironport WSA basics
> Wired and Wireless Dot1x Deployments
> Active Directory - DNS, AD DS Basics
> Authentication integration with RSA, Microsoft AD, Novell LDAP

I have also trained/mentored many individuals throughout my tenure. Technical training is my expertise.
