this project is also helpful for IT engineers who want to embark on their learning journey in the Cisco world! On the other hand, this project serves as a perfect introduction to computer networks and Cisco devices for aspiring network professionals. However, a background in computer networks and IT infrastructure is highly recommended for this project. This project also requires a cisco networking academy ID. If you do not have one, refer to the readings of this guided project for instructions on how to create one. You may also click the link on your screen to visit the signup page. In this project, you will identify different components such as end devices, intermediary devices, and connection media and simulate network topologies in the Packet Tracer, manage Cisco network devices using telnet, SSH, and Console connections, and secure access to Cisco devices using passwords and password encryption services. By the end of this project, you will be able to use the Packet Tracer to create network topologies that are like the one you’re seeing on the screen, connect to network devices using telnet, SSH, and Console, and manage basic security settings on Cisco devices. This project is one of a kind because it teaches foundational computer network skills to learners from a variety of experience levels using entirely simulated experience. In this project, learners will acquire what they need in simulation environments as if they were working on real devices.
