SPNGN2 Training

SPNGN2 (Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks, Part 2) is a five-day instructor-led training course that provides network engineers and technicians the knowledge and skills necessary to implement and support a service provider network. It is associated with the CCNA Service Provider certification. The course provides knowledge of the major components of a service provider network construction and the Cisco service provider IP NGN architecture. The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills for deploying Cisco IOS / IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR software features to operate and support service provider networks.

This course is presented using a combination of lecture and lab activities and incorporates all the material a student needs to pass the SPNGN2 exam.
