Overview of Cisco CCNP ENCOR 350 - 401 Training By Ahmad Ali
The ENCOR - Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies v1.0 course gives you the knowledge and skills to configure, troubleshoot, and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks.
You’ll also learn to implement security principles within an enterprise network and how to overlay network design using solutions such as SD-Access and SD-WAN. CCNP Enterprise training includes advanced routing, switching, troubleshooting, security, SDN, etc.
Educational training videos are supported with step-by-step configuration and troubleshooting examples so you can easily understand topics, get hands-on experience, and be a network professional. You will get important information about advanced routing, switching, shooting, security, SDN, etc.
If you want, this course will be excellent for preparing for the CCNP Enterprise certification exams step. The core exam is also the qualifying exam for CCIE Enterprise certification.
This course gives you the knowledge and skills to configure, troubleshoot, and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks. You’ll also learn to implement security principles within an enterprise network and how to overlay network design using solutions such as SD-Access and SD-WAN.
