CISCO CCNA Semester 2 Routing and Switching Essentials

By the end of this course, you will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues in a range of areas - including with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, EIGRP, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
