    Network Fundamentals – Design & Build Enterprise Networks

    We invite all specialists interested in IP networks to participate in network training that is not detached from reality! This is the level of Cisco CCNA training and the technologies discussed cover its scope, but we provide this knowledge by touching upon practical aspects of working with IP networks and examples of the application of the discussed theory on a living organism. It’s worth knowing why you’re learning a particular theory at a given moment, because you’ll understand it faster!

    The training is designed in such a way that both a beginner network specialist during his studies and an already experienced IT specialist will find the joy of configuring in the CLI, solving a problem, and touching many areas of enterprise networks such as QoS, WLAN, Switching, Routing, Firewalling. , VPN, Security, Data Center will allow you to get a new perspective, and maybe a new job or a raise.

    We adhere to the principle that only focusing on each participant individually brings the expected results. Thanks to small training groups, the trainer responds to all students’ questions and problems. Its only goal is to provide knowledge that will be assimilated with 100% understanding.

    Raise your qualifications and stand out in the labor market

    Few IT specialists starting their careers have the opportunity to design and build a network from scratch that includes all the elements necessary for the functioning of a modern company. During the “Enterprise Network Design and Construction” training, you will learn what services and realities look like in high-class enterprise networks, you will learn how to select components, applications and devices to ensure the expected level of services. You will configure network equipment from Cisco and other manufacturers yourself and solve any problems (network troubleshooting).

    During the training, you have the opportunity not only to learn the basics of LAN/WAN/Internet/WiFi networks based on the Cisco Systems but also to pick up the bugs from trainers and participants, thanks to which you will start to gain knowledge and absorb new skills. The training is the first step on the way to the respected Cisco CCNA and CCNP certificates.


    What does networking fundamentals training look like?

    “Network Basics Training. Design and Construction of Enterprise Networks” is a training on the principles of operation, construction and maintenance of enterprise-class networks using the latest Cisco network solutions available on the market.

    The training is conducted by Krzysztof Osmałek – a network and systems engineer with several years of experience in designing and implementing secure LAN, WAN and WLAN networks based on the Cisco infrastrukcture.

    The training presents the basics of networks, examples from real projects, photos of model server rooms (but also those that should not be duplicated), techniques for designing, configuring, troubleshooting and maintaining IP networks.


    How does this course differ from ICND1 and ICND2 training preparing for Cisco CCNA or CCNENT?

    Please note that the training offered is not Cisco ICND training but a dedicated course for those who want to start or have already started their career as IT Specialists or Network Engineers. The training does not directly prepare you to pass the CCNA or CCENT exam but it is a solid theoretical and practical pillar for the professional path of a network engineer or IT specialist. Although this is not an ICND course, the training covers the scope of the CCNA and CCENT exams. It is worth adding that during the training, most of the laboratories are based on real network equipment from the most recognized manufacturer in the industry, Cisco Systems.


    Training agenda

    Our ambition is to conduct training in a way that the technology becomes not only understandable but also enjoyable in a way that makes you want to come back to it and absorb it. The training is designed to teach the basics of operation and work with IP networks, combining elements of theory and practice. The theory is presented easily by the trainer, and practical skills are acquired in the laboratory using real devices and systems. Each participant has their own laboratory set at their disposal. With the comfort of learners and an individual approach in mind, groups consist of a maximum of 12 people.
