This design document is for the first version of the new Building Cisco Service Provider Next Generation Networks, Part 2 (SPNGN2) v1.0 course. provides network engineers and technicians with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement and support a service provider network. The course focuses on using Cisco switches and Cisco routers that are connected in LANs and WANs and are typically found in the service provider network. Upon completing this course delegates will be able to configure, verify, and troubleshoot the various Cisco networking devices.
The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support service provider network.
The primary audience for this course is:
The secondary audience for this course is:
The tertiary audience for this course is program managers.
- Basic computer literacy
- Basic Microsoft Windows navigation skills
- Basic Internet usage skills
- Basic knowledge of networking concepts
- Basic knowledge of Cisco IOS/IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR software configuration
