CISCO Academy 2 - CCNA
FEKT-XCA2Acad. year: 2020/2021
The course XCA2 is divided into two parts. The first part is the curriculum „Scaling Networks ” (ScaN) which deals with fundamentals of scaling networks. The second part it the curriculum „Connecting Networks ” (CN) which deals with WAN technologies, virtual private networks (VPN), methods of monitoring and troubleshooting of IP networks. Laboratories include configure, analyze and troubleshooting large enterprise IT networks.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Techning methods include lectures, computer laboratories and practical laboratories. Course is taking advantage of e-learning (Moodle) system.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The student is assessed using two exams. The content of the first exam is derived from the course „Scaling Networks ” (ScaN). The content of the second exam is derived from the course „Connecting Networks ” (CN). Each exam consists of practical and theoretical parts. Both parts of the exam must be passed with at least 75%. Final classification is calculated as the average of points obtained from each part of the exam. The results of both exam are averaged, which is then converted into the BUT points.
Language of instruction
1. Introduce to scaling networks.
2. Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), First Hop Redundancy Protocols (HSRP and GLBP).
3. Channel agregation.
4. Multiarea OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 protocols.
5. EIGRP for IPv4 and IPv6.
6. Management and licencing of IOS.
7. Intoduction to WAN.
8. Connecting technologies point-to-point.
9. Frame Relay technology.
10. NAT for IPv4.
11. DSL technology and secure site-to-site connection.
12. Monitoring and Troubleshooting networks.
The goal of the course is to introduce the principles of scalable IP networks and WAN technologies. Students will also be acquainted with methods of monitoring and troubleshooting of IP networks.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
