In the Building Cisco Remote Access Networks (BCRAN) course, part of the recommended training path for those who seek the CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) certification, participants learn how to build, configure and troubleshoot a remote access network to interconnect central sites to branch offices and small offices/home offices.

Participants also learn how to control access using basic authentication and authorization configurations, how to maximize bandwidth utilization over the remote links, and how to set up virtual private networks (VPNs) using IPSec.

This course will prepare participants to successfully pass the Cisco certification exam #642-821 Remote Access . After passing Exams #642-801, -811, -821, and -831, participants will receive the CCNP certification .

Who should attend

  • CCND and CCDP candidates
  • Network installation and support professionals who install and support Cisco technology-based networks in which devices use remote access over WANs
  • Communications and services professionals working with infrastructure or access solutions in a Cisco end-to-end environment primarily within the telecommunications arena
  • Network professional seeking a broad remote access foundation to prepare for subsequent specialist certifications in electives such as DSL or Network Security
  • Network administrators responsible for implementing and troubleshooting enterprise WANs that includes a central headquarters, remote branches, and small office/home office sites
  • CCNPs who are preparing for the highest level of achievement for network professionals as CCIE Dial ISP and routing/switching candidates

  • General Cisco router operation and configuration
  • TCP/IP operation and configuration
  • Routing Protocols (RIP, IGRP)
  • Routed IP Protocols and IP Utility applications
  • Standard and extended access lists
  • PPP operation and PPP configuration over serial links
  • Frame Relay operation and configuration on interfaces and subinterfaces
  • Legacy DDR over ISDN-BRI operation and configuration

Note: These topics are covered in the Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices (ICND) course.
