CCNA 2 v7 – Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials v7.0 (SRWE):

  • Blend of CCNA 6.0: RSE + ScaN + New topics
  • Addition of WLAN and Security topics

CCNA 2 v7.0 – The second course in the CCNA curriculum focuses on switching technologies and router operations that support small-to-medium business networks and includes wireless local area networks (WLAN) and security concepts. Students learn key switching and routing concepts. They can perform basic network configuration and troubleshooting, identify and mitigate LAN security threats, and configure and secure a basic WLAN.

CCNA 3 v7 Exam Answers – Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation v7.0 (ENSA)

  • Blend of CCNA 6.0: RSE+ ScaN + CN + New topics
  • Addition of Network Automation, VPN, and Security topics

The third course in the CCNA curriculum describes the architectures and considerations related to designing, securing, operating, and troubleshooting enterprise networks. This course covers wide area network (WAN) technologies and quality of service (QoS) mechanisms used for secure remote access along with the introduction of software-defined networking, virtualization, and automation concepts that support the digitalization of networks. Students gain skills to configure and troubleshoot enterprise networks, and learn to identify and protect against cybersecurity threats. They are introduced to network management tools and learn key concepts of software-defined networking, including controller-based architectures and how application programming interfaces (APIs) enable network automation.
