Huawei Certified ICT Associate – Routing and Switching

The routing and switching technology is a technology that connects network devices and implements data transmission. The switching technology can ensure data transmission at the data link layer, and the routing technology ensures data transmission at the network layer. The routing and switching technology is a basic knowledge required by engineers.

This course is broken up into two sections. The entry level section introduces basic concepts and basic network knowledge of routing and switching. The intermediate level section is more advanced and introduces various advanced network technologies and protocols in the routing and switching network, and expands the network knowledge of trainees, to cope with complex network service configurations. At the end of the course, students will write one exam to obtain certification.
