Course Overview

CCNAv7: Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials (SRWE) covers the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in small networks and introduces wireless local area networks (WLAN) and security concepts. Students learn how to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches for advanced functionality using security best practices and resolve common issues with protocols in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

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

  • Configure VLANs and Inter-VLAN routing applying security best practices.
  • Troubleshoot inter-VLAN routing on Layer 3 devices.
  • Configure redundancy on a switched network using STP and EtherChannel.
  • Troubleshoot EtherChannel on switched networks.
  • Explain how to support available and reliable networks using dynamic addressing and first-hop redundancy protocols.
  • Configure dynamic address allocation in IPv6 networks.
  • Configure WLANs using a WLC and L2 security best practices.
  • Configure switch security to mitigate LAN attacks.
  • Configure IPv4 and IPv6 static routing on routers.

The 70-hour, instructor-led course is the 2nd 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 16 modules
Videos 15 videos
Labs 14 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 31 Packet Tracer activities Simulation and modeling activities designed for skills exploration, acquisition, reinforcement and expansion.
Interactive Activities 1 Interactive activity
Syntax Checkers 19 Syntax Checker activities Small simulations that expose learners to Cisco command line to practice configuration skills.
Check Your Understanding (CYU) 36 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 16 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.
Packet Tracer Skills Assessment (PTSA) 2 Part 1 and Part 2 to ensure that adequate coverage is given to the various skills required in the course.
End-of-Course 1 end-of-course survey to provide feedback for the course.
Accessibility New UI complies with WCAG 2.1 Level AA Guidelines. All pages contain accessible text and highly descriptive media transcripts. All PDF files in the curriculum have been created with accessible features. Videos have closed captioning available. UI is screen reader and keyboard accessible.
Certificate of Completion The successful completion of the end-of-course assessment and end-of-course survey are required for receiving the Certificate of Completion.
