About This Course

Course Description:

The Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) is a 5-day course that gives you the knowledge and skills needed to configure, troubleshoot, and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks. You’ll also learn to implement security principles within an enterprise network and how to overlay network design by using solutions such as SD-Access and SD-WAN.

This course will help you:

    • Configure, troubleshoot, and manage enterprise wired and wireless networks
    • Implement security principles within an enterprise network
    • Prepare you to take the 350-401 Implementing Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) exam

To earn CCNP Enterprise, you pass two exams: a core exam(ENCOR) and an enterprise concentration exam of your choice. And every exam in the CCNP Enterprise program earns an individual Specialist certification, so you get recognized for your accomplishments along the way.

The core exam focuses on your knowledge of enterprise infrastructure including dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) architecture, virtualization, infrastructure, network assurance, security, and automation. The core exam is also the qualifying exam for CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure and CCIE Enterprise Wireless certifications. Passing this exam helps toward earning any or all of these certifications.

Concentration exams focus on emerging and industry-specific topics such as network design, SD-WAN, wireless, and automation. You can prepare for concentration exams by taking corresponding Cisco training courses.
