Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies Course Overview

Vinsys' Cisco ENCOR v1.1  training brings knowledge for configuring, troubleshooting, and managing enterprise wired/wireless networks, and lets you implement automation/programmability within an enterprise network. In addition, it explains how to overlay network design by using SD-Access and SD-WAN solutions.

The Implementing/Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies course includes the equivalent of 3 days of self-study material. It also prepares you for the 350-401 exam, needed for earning CCNP Enterprise, CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure, CCIE Enterprise Wireless, and Cisco Certified Specialist–Enterprise Core  certifications.
