Course Overview

CCNAv7: Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation (ENSA) describes the architecture, components, operations, and security to scale for large, complex networks, including wide area network (WAN) technologies. The course emphasizes network security concepts and introduces network virtualization and automation. Students learn how to configure, troubleshoot, and secure enterprise network devices and understand how application programming interfaces (API) and configuration management tools enable network automation.

By the end of this course, students will be able:

  • Configure single-area OSPFv2 in both point-to-point and multiaccess networks.
  • Explain how to mitigate threats and enhance network security using access control lists and security best practices.
  • Implement standard IPv4 ACLs to filter traffic and secure administrative access.
  • Configure NAT services on the edge router to provide IPv4 address scalability.
  • Explain techniques to provide address scalability and secure remote access for WANs.
  • Explain how to optimize, monitor, and troubleshoot scalable network architectures.
  • Explain how networking devices implement QoS.
  • Implement protocols to manage the network.
  • Explain how technologies such as virtualization, software defined networking, and automation affect evolving networks.

The 70-hour, instructor-led course is the 3rd of 3 courses in the Cisco CCNAv7 curriculum. The course includes activities using Packet Tracer, hands-on lab work, and a wide array of assessment types and tools.

E-Learning Content 14 modules
Videos 32 videos
Labs 12 hands-on and paper-based labs CCNAv7 labs were written using Cisco 4221 routers and 2960 switches. Previous equipment such as the 1941 and 2901 routers can be used, but some modifications for router interface names will be required.
Packet Tracer Activities 29 Packet Tracer activities Simulation and modeling activities designed for skills exploration, acquisition, reinforcement and expansion.
Interactive Activities 1 Interactive activity
Syntax Checkers 13 Syntax Checker activities Small simulations that expose learners to Cisco command line to practice configuration skills.
Check Your Understanding (CYU) 53 CYUs CYUs are per topic online, self-diagnostic quizzes to help learners gauge content understanding. CYU activities are designed to let students quickly determine if they understand the content and can proceed, or if they need to review. CYU activities do not affect student grades.
Module Quizzes 14 Self-assessments that integrate concepts and skills learned throughout the series of topics presented in the module.
Module Group Exams 5 Instructor Activated Assessments that assesses content from multiple modules. These assessment provide learners the opportunity to apply and validate knowledge learned throughout the course.
Final Exam 1 Dynamic Final Exam with Secured Activation Variables in the design of the exam allows an instructor to administer unique exams to each student and assess each student’s learning individually. With Secured Activation, individual assessment item preview and review is disabled to improve validity and security of this summative assessment. Instructors are provided with a visual summary view of how students performed against the competencies outlined for the course.
CCNA Certification Practice Exam 1 Dynamic Certification Practice Exam with Secured Activation. This exam covers knowledge and skills that align to the new Cisco Certified Network Associate v2.0 (CCNA 200-301) Certification objectives. Variables in the design of the exam allows an instructor to administer unique exams to each student and assess each student’s learning individually. With Secured Activation, individual assessment item preview and review is disabled to improve validity and security of this summative assessment. Instructors are provided with a visual summary view of how students performed against the competencies outlined for the course.
Packet Tracer Skills Assessment (PTSA) 1
