What is Cisco networking ?

The Internet and its accompanying networking technologies have made our world increasingly interconnected, transforming the way we work, learn, communicate and do business.

As networks become more integrated they become more complicated and they require upgraded hardware technologies to handle additional network traffic. With more than 80 percent of Internet data traffic traveling across Cisco equipment, Cisco Systems is regarded as the leader in network technology.

You can prepare for an exciting career integrating networks using industry-leading technology. MCC's Cisco Networking Academy® program gives you the technical knowledge needed to obtain Cisco's nationally recognized computer networking certification, Cisco Certified Network Associate™ (CCNA™). CCNA certification indicates basic knowledge of networking systems. It prepares you to become a help desk engineer, field technician, level 1 system engineer or integrator.
