Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation (Course ID: CNTI 1130)

Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation (ENSA) course is the third course in the CCNAv7 curriculum. This course 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. It also introduces 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.
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
• 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.
