Course Information

Course Description

​This exclusive course covers Cisco’s latest Network Management software Prime Infrastructure. Cisco Prime Infrastructure is a converged solution taking components from Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution (LMS) and Cisco Prime Network Control System (NCS) for comprehensive lifecycle management of wired and wireless networks. This course covers the important aspects from the CWLMS and WMNGI courses. This is the recommended training for anyone using Cisco Prime LMS or NCS with plans to migrate to Prime Infrastructure.


Cisco Prime Infrastructure is the recommended upgrade path for Cisco Prime LMS and Cisco Prime NCS users. While not a direct feature-to-feature upgrade for LMS, it supports core LMS-like functionality for wired device management. The focus is to find the correct tools within the software to document the network inventory, manage device configurations, control software updates, monitor performance, troubleshoot faults, and simplify the deployment of new Cisco technologies.

Course Objectives

Course Audience

​Network administrators, managers, and technicians who need a more efficient way of managing and maintaining the network infrastructure. Anyone who currently has Cisco WCS, NCS, LMS software and plans to migrate towards the newer PRIME offering from Cisco will also find this course beneficial.
