Learners perform hands-on activities covering switching, routing, wireless, and related security topics, along with the technologies that support software-defined programmable networks. Learners taking the Cisco CCNP Enterprise: Core Networking course will be prepared for the Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies exam (350-401 ENCOR) that earns an Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Core certification.
The labs are supported in NETLAB+ using the Professional Multi-purpose Academy Pod (PMAP)

To enable the CCNP Enterprise: Core Networking (ENCOR) v8 labs, install the CCNP Enterprise: Core Networking (ENCOR) v8.0 course using the Course Manager. See the Course Manager section of the NETLAB+ VE Admin Guide for details. The course content will then be available to be added to classes.
Always select the correct lab exercise for the lab being performed. Students or teams should schedule the correct lab exercise from the catalog. NETLAB+ will only show those labs for which the required pod type is available. A lab that works on different pod types may appear more than once if your system is so equipped. Instructors should select the correct lab from the Exercise tab during instructor-led lab reservations. This can be done as many times as needed during the reservation.
Importance of Choosing the Correct Lab Exercise
Several of the labs may differ from the standard pod topologies. This is handled by NETLAB+ Dynamic VLAN Mapping technology. Always select the correct lab exercise for the actual lab. This insures that NETLAB+ will set up VLANs on the control switch such that lab devices and PCs are placed in the correct LAN segment for the exercise being performed. Selecting the correct exercise will also make the completed lab output easier to find in the archive.
NETLAB+ will configure the routers with initial configuration files that include basic IP connectivity. Please verify this configuration by pinging the network interfaces before starting the lab exercise.
