Course Content

The Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks, Part 2 (SPNGN2) v1.2 course is an instructor-led course that is presented by Cisco Learning Partners to their end-user customers. This five-day course provides network engineers and technicians with the knowledge and skills that are necessary to implement and support a provider network (P-network).

The course focuses on using Cisco routers and switches that are connected in LANs and WANs, and they are typically found in the P-network. Upon completing this course, learners will be able to configure, verify, and troubleshoot the various Cisco networking devices.

The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills when deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE Software and Cisco IOS XR Software features to operate and support the P-network.
