CCNA 1: Introduction to Networks

@ Honolulu Community College


CCNA 1 introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. It uses the OSI and TCP layered models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services at the application, network, data link, and physical layers. The principles and structure of IPv4 and IPv6 addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum.

Labs use a "model Internet" to allow you to analyze real data without affecting production networks. Packet Tracer (PT) activities help you analyze protocol and network operation and build small networks in a simulated environment. At the end of the course, you will build simple LAN topologies by applying basic principles of cabling, performing basic configurations of network devices, including routers and switches, and by implementing IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes.

Recommended Preparation: Experience with hardware and computer troubleshooting, familiarity with computer terms, and experience with Windows operating system

Required Preparation: Must have access to a computer with Windows as well as Internet access outside of class to complete assignments

Course Competencies:  At the end of this course, the student will be able to:
- Describe the devices and services used to support communications in data networks and the Internet
- Describe the role of protocol layers in data networks
- Describe the importance of addressing and naming schemes at various layers of data networks in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
- Design, calculate, and apply subnet masks and addresses to fulfill given requirements in IPv4 and IPv6 networks
- Explain fundamental Ethernet concepts such as media, services, and operations
- Build a simple Ethernet network using routers and switches
- Utilize Cisco command-line interface (CLI) commands to perform basic router and switch configurations
- Utilize common network utilities to verify small network operations and analyze data traffic
