Video Series (MP4): 2 hours

In this new training series, which is focused on a practical solution, you will learn how to deploy a LAN and Internet Edge solution using Cisco hardware. The purpose of this series is less with discussing the concepts and more with deploying a practical network solution from start to finish, step-by-step. This is ideal for network engineers and consultants who are looking for quick solutions to implement in short time.

The solution taught in this series is commonly used today for most Small, SMB, Medium, to Large sized networks.  These solutions are used to provide access to the internet, internal services, to even remote access while considering best practices.

This deployment will involve several solutions and services that will be configured (which are referenced below):

  • Solutions:
    • Local Area Network (LAN)
    • Internet Edge
  • Services/Features:
    • Basic Configuration
    • Interfaces
    • Basic Routing
    • LAN Switching – VLAN, 802.1Q Trunking, Spanning Tree, VTP
    • Port Assignment
    • DHCP
    • Network Address Translation (NAT) using PAT and NAT Port Forwarding
    • IOS based Firewalls using CBAC and ACL
    • Client VPN using Cisco VPN Client

In this series we will first discuss the details for what we will deploy and then we will show the actual configuration.  Finally, we will test our solution to make sure it is working and we will monitor its behavior on the network equipment itself.
