Course objectives
Course Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation (ENSA) describes the architecture, components, operations, and security to scale for large, complex networks, including wide area network (WAN) technologies. The course emphasizes network security concepts and introduces network virtualization and automation. Students learn how to configure, troubleshoot, and secure enterprise network devices and understand how application programming interfaces (API) and configuration management tools enable network automation.
Learning outcomes
By the end of the course, students will be able to: - Configure single-area OSPFv2 in both point-to-point and multiaccess networks. - Explain how to mitigate threats and enhance network security using access control lists and security best practices. - Implement standard IPv4 ACLs to filter traffic and secure administrative access. - Configure NAT services on the edge router to provide IPv4 address scalability. - Explain techniques to provide address scalability and secure remote access for WANs. - Explain how to optimize, monitor, and troubleshoot scalable network architectures. - Explain how networking devices implement QoS. - Implement protocols to manage the network. - Explain how technologies such as virtualization, software defined networking, and automation affect evolving networks. The course includes activities using Packet Tracer, hands-on lab work, and a wide array of assessment types and tools.

Teacher's information
The course PV234 Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation builds on the course PV233 Switching, Routing and Wireless Essential, and together with it covers the material covered in the Cisco Networking Academy educational program. Students will receive a Cisco Certified Network Associate certificate. In these two subjects, students can acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the field of contemporary computer networks. Cisco Networking Academy is a program focused on training professionals for the design, construction, and management of computer networks. During his studies, he can gain not only theoretical knowledge, but also practical skills in the field of modern computer networks. The mentioned educational program offers students a broad knowledge of computer networks and its goal is to contribute to the professional training of specialists for the needs of building an information society. Study materials posted under the course PV234 are in English only. Preference is given to students who completed PV233 in the current school year.
The course is also listed under the following terms Spring 2011, Spring 2012, Spring 2013, Spring 2014, Spring 2015, Spring 2016, Spring 2017, Spring 2018, Spring 2019, Spring 2020, Spring 2021, Spring 2022, Spring 2023.
