To ensure that you gain the maximum benefit from the HCIP-Datacom-Advanced Routing & Switching Technology course, it is recommended that you meet the following prerequisites:

  • Solid understanding of basic networking concepts, including the OSI model, TCP/IP protocol suite, and common networking devices such as routers and switches.
  • Familiarity with basic routing and switching technologies, including an understanding of VLANs, STP, and Ethernet technologies.
  • Knowledge of basic routing protocols such as RIP, OSPF, and EIGRP, as well as the fundamentals of IP addressing and subnetting.
  • Prior experience with or understanding of the BGP protocol and its basic operation in a network.
  • Basic knowledge of IPv6 addressing, configuration, and the differences between IPv6 and IPv4.
  • If you have previously completed the HCIA (Huawei Certified ICT Associate) or equivalent certification, it will be beneficial but not mandatory.
  • Analytical and problem-solving skills to troubleshoot network issues.
  • Motivation to learn advanced concepts in routing, switching, and network technologies.

Please note that these prerequisites are meant to provide a foundation upon which the HCIP-Datacom course will build. They are not intended to discourage any learner who is eager to advance their skills. If you have gaps in some of these areas, consider taking foundational courses or self-study to prepare for the HCIP-Datacom-Advanced Routing & Switching Technology course.
