CCNAv7: Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials (SRWE)

Purpose The Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials (SRWE) course is the second course in the CCNAv7 curriculum. This course focuses on switching technologies and router operations that support small-to-medium business networks. It includes wireless local area networks (WLANs) and security concepts.


  • Students learn key switching and routing concepts. They can perform basic network configuration and troubleshooting, identify and mitigate LAN security threats, and configure and secure a basic WLAN.


  • Configure VLANs and Inter-VLAN routing, applying security best practices
  • Troubleshoot inter-VLAN routing on Layer 3 devices
  • Configure redundancy on a switched network using STP and EtherChannel.
  • Troubleshoot EtherChannel on switched networks.
  • Explain how to support available and reliable networks using dynamic addressing and first-hop redundancy protocols
  • Configure dynamic address allocation in IPv6 networks
  • Configure WLANs using a WLC and L2 security best practices.
  • Configure switch security to mitigate LAN attacks
  • Configure IPv4 and IPv6 static routing on routers.
