New CCNA Topics!

CCNA 200-301 includes a significant amount of wireless and network programmability. That is attributed to the popularity of mobile devices, cloud computing and SDN architecture. Cisco is aligning the new CCNA certification exam with a shift to internet-based connectivity model and OSPF for routing IP protocol only. EIGRP was created for multiprotocol routing and RIP is not scalable for mobile and cloud connections.

The management and troubleshooting of network infrastructure is being radically changed with SDN open source architecture. Cisco has enabled programmable features on their devices and virtualization from physical equipment to software services. They have virtual appliances and CCNA engineers now support private and cloud data center connections.
