One sentence answer, Study of Cisco Network Devices at Associate Level.

In this article I am here to explain what CCNA is the CCNA? Actually the Cisco certifications are the study of Cisco equipment which are mostly regarding the network. Cisco is market leading in network equipment and creates the benchmark in IT. Also provide the standards to IEEE. Whereas Router is the invention of cisco. EIGRP is the routing protocol defined by cisco. If I am not wrong IEEE Standard. 802.1q, cisco has ISL encapsulation. So Cisco can’t ignore in Network market. Cisco holds 6.93% share in Industry. Cisco offers Products, Solutions, and Services, So to handle all these matters. Cisco has its own certification tracks for the study of its equipment and the lowest and initial or associate level of Cisco equipment study is known as CCNA Cisco Certified Network Associate.

CCNA Cisco Certified Network Associate is the Actual Study of Cisco devices/ products at Associate Level. But Cisco is very intelligent, so the designed course not only covers the Cisco equipment but also the general and open standard offered by IEEE that has been also adopted by Cisco devices covered in this course.

So when the students after certification go into industry they are well familiar with IEEE standards as well as Cisco offering (Cisco proprietary protocols). I would like to explain by example. If we study the EtherChannel Cisco not only covers the LACP as well as LAGP. Cisco not only covers the OSPF but also has the chapter for EIGRP (no more part of new CCNA 200-301 course). The IEEE encapsulation of 802.1Q also has an ISL explanation.
