An examination of the Wide Area Network (WAN) technologies and network services required in converged applications in a complex network. Covers the criteria for selecting network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements. Students troubleshoot and resolve common problems with network devices and data link protocols; and they implement the following: Network Address Translation (NAT), Virtual Private Network (VPN), Quality of Service (QoS), Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE), external Border Gateway Protocol (eBGP), Switch Port Analyzer (SPAN), Extended IPv4 Access Control Lists (ACLs), and IPv6 ACLs. They also examine the uses of network programming, LAN security, the Cloud, and virtualization in medium- to large-sized networks. This is the last in a series of four courses in the Cisco Networking Technology (CNT) curriculum.
