Internetworking Basics An internetwork is a collection of individual networks, connected by intermediate networking devices, that functions as a single large network. The following articles provide information about internetworking basics: LAN Technologies A LAN is a high-speed data network that covers a relatively small geographic area. The following articles provide information different LAN technologies: WAN Technologies A WAN is a data communications network that covers a relatively broad geographic area and that often uses transmission facilities provided by common carriers, such as telephone companies. The following articles provide information about the various protocols and technologies used in WAN environments: Internet Protocols The following articles provide information about different IOS IP technologies: Routing Related:  Cisco certifications

FREE Cisco Courses - CCNA Cisco has created the certification process to give administrators a set of skills and to equip prospective employers with a way to measure skills or match certain criteria. Becoming a Cisco Certified can be a crucial step of a successful journey toward a new, highly rewarding and sustainable career. In example, the CCNA program was created to provide a solid introduction not only to the Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS) and Cisco hardware, but also to internetworking in general, making it helpful to you in areas that are not exclusively Cisco's. During the years the CCNA certification evolve and now there are lowest levels of certification but the CCNA level is the first important and well recognizable step. Currently there are eight different tracks in the Associate level based on the different technologies. Your final step is to obtain your Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE).

Free Network Diagram Software - Cisco Certification In order to pass your Cisco Certification exam, you are required to memorize countless technical details. The best way to do this is to practice your skills over and over again across many labs. Unfortunately, without a way to document your labs, a lot of what you practiced is still forgotten. NetBrain Personal Edition can help you document your labs automatically, by allowing you to: Discover devices and create rich diagrams from your configuration data Automatically capture, organize, and annotate show command results Take notes alongside the map with the built-in Notes tab Once your lab is fully documented inside a NetBrain Qmap, you can review it down the road without the hassle of having to rebuild it.

IPv6 Autoconfiguration - The Internet Protocol Journal - Volume 7, Number 2 Since 1993 the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) [1] has allowed systems to obtain an IPv4 address as well as other information such as the default router or Domain Name System (DNS) server. A similar protocol called DHCPv6 [2] has been published for IPv6, the next version of the IP protocol. However, IPv6 also has a stateless autoconfiguration protocol [3], which has no equivalent in IPv4. DHCP and DHCPv6 are known as stateful protocols because they maintain tables within dedicated servers. However, the stateless autoconfiguration protocol does not need any server or relay because there is no state to maintain. This article explains the IPv6 stateless autoconfiguration mechanism and depicts its different phases. Every IPv6 system (other than routers) is able to build its own unicast global address. Address types have well-defined destination scopes: global, site-local and link-local. At minimum, a NIC is associated with a single link-local address.

WAN Networking Overview - Wide Area Communication A widea area network may consist of a multiple LANs or MANs. The world’s most popular wide arae network in the world is is the internet. WANs are the corporate network that utilizes leased lines. Wide area networks generally utilize much expensive equipment. The main communication technologies that are included in the WAN are SONET, Frame Relay and ATM. The computers that are connected to the WANs are generally connected through the public networks and they can also be connected through the satellites. WANs are used to connect the computers in the one part of the world with the other part of the world. With this hub a number of computers and other hubs and switches are connected. Networking Methods Networking is a complex part of the computing and it covers the broader range of the IT industry. Local Area Network (LAN) A local area network is relatively covers small space and provides services to a small amount of people. Wide Area Network (WAN) Types of WANs Centralized WANS:

Updated CCNA Study Plan & schedule "Those fail to Plan, Plan to Fail" So you have started studying for ccna and there is no end to when you might finish; you feel overwhelmed. Thats because you just started studying and had no plan on how to study. I am assuming you have atleast 1 book and atleast 1 simulator to get started. If not you may look here How to study for CCNA FREE Dont forget to Read The attached Document "how to pass your CCNA" Everyone seems to have a lot of trouble with binary & subnetting 1st, so master this topic 1st.Then while you are reading the books, practice the hands on at the same time. I am going to assume you will spend however long it takes you to finish reading everything available to you on each topic every day whether that means studying 2 hours or studying 8 hours to get the job done. One of my teacher in college used to say, It takes an adult 3 times to hear something to fully comprehend the subject. Plan 1: Alternatively Plan 2: Cisco IOS Hints and Tricks: TRILL and 802.1aq are like apples and oranges A comment by Brad Hedlund has sent me studying the differences between TRILL and 802.1aq and one of the first articles I’ve stumbled upon was a nice overview which claimed that the protocols are very similar (as they both use IS-IS to select shortest path across the network). After studying whatever sparse information there is on 802.1aq (you might want to read Greg Ferro’s fascination with IEEE paywall) and the obligatory headache, I’ve figured out that the two proposals have completely different forwarding paradigms. To claim they’re similar is the same as saying DECnet phase V and MPLS Traffic Engineering are similar because they both use IS-IS. TRILL forwarding Within the backbone, TRILL is a true layer-3 protocol: TRILL header has a hop count, RBridges have layer-3 addresses and the layer-2 header changes as the packet is propagated across the backbone. 802.1aq forwarding The ingress PBB (Provider Backbone Bridge) takes the user’s MAC frame and encapsulates it in 802.1ah MAC frame.
