With Cisco’s market share for routers around 60 percent it is easy to see why. Juniper is second with around 30 percent in case you’re interested.

Cisco lists the following exam topics:

Describe how a network works

  • Configure, verify and troubleshoot a switch with VLANs and interswitch communications
