What is New in CCNA v3?
« on: October 11, 2017, 05:03:50 AM »
The CCNA Routing and Switching (v3.0) certification offers more job role-focused training as compared to previous versions; now network engineers will gain meaningful and updated networking knowledge with advance skills to configure, manage and troubleshoot LAN and WAN in a routing/switching domain.

Some newly-added technologies include:

    EIGRP implementation for IPv6 networks
    Multi-area OSPF (both OSPFv2 and OSPFv3)
    Introduction to IPv6 Access Control Lists (ACLs)
    Configuration and verification of PPP Multilink and LLDP (Link Layer Discover Protocol)
    Introduction to basic Cloud services and resources
    Basic IP SLA implementation to troubleshoot connectivity (icmp-echo) and introduction to SPAN

Along with the above-listed technologies, Cisco has also introduced some highly advanced technologies to the CCNA R&S v3.0 (I am very much surprised and grateful to Cisco for introducing advanced technologies such as BGP, QoS and VPN in an entry-level certification program). Now, CCNA R&S v3.0 candidates will also be able to get an introduction to the following advanced technologies:

    Introduction to VPN technologies such as site-to-site VPN, Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN), and client VPN
    Basic implementation of BGP peering and route advertisement
    Introduction to Quality of Service (QoS) concepts.

Cisco not only added new technologies to CCNA R&S v3.0, they have also said goodbye to some technologies. For now, technologies like VRRP, GLBP, Troubleshooting Frame Relay and layer 1 issues, etc. will not be a part of CCNA R&S, so if you are starting the preparation for CCNA R&S v3.0, you can skip the above listed technologies.
