#CCNP_Jan_2019 #Octa_Networks Yesterday we learned the basics of BGP including property, message types, states,role of igp into bgp and Rathod sir explained how messages are involved with states of bgp. I left the class after half session because of office work 😞 and could not attend the remaining last 45 minuets. But one thing is best and will be always best that our Trainer Jagdish Sir is always in positive mode and clear our doubt positively. Thank you Jagdish sir, Arshad Sir and Octa networks for providing such an opportunity to learn the technology. Jagdish Sir is doing his best in all session with same energy..........

My self Krishnendu form Kolkata i have attended CCNA Service provider and CCNP routing and Switching training from Octa Network. My trainer is Mr jagdish Rathod. He teaches us everything in detail. Today we have competed HSRP, VRRP and GLBP theory as well as Practical sessions. I have cleared all my doubts related to HSRP. Thank you Octa Networks, Rathod Jagdish, Arshad Dhunna, and Joaquim Fernandes sir.

I have attended the CCNA Wireless 8am-10am class.I learnt about RRM and AP group RF. Mr.Vibhor Sir explained these concept in very well manner.He keeps the session very interactive and solves all the queries raised by Students.Thanks Octa networks for providing such a talented mentor. Thank You Octa Networks arshad Dhunna and Joaquim Fernandes for providing this Great Opportunity.

Yes its true 🤩 First of all I am giving 100/100 and I strongly recommended Octa Networks to all from this entire world that if want to start your carrier in Networking field (it doesn’t matter you are from technical background on not) Octa Networks will makes you champion in Networking (CCNA, CCNP, CCIE in all tracks). Wish you all the best Octa Networks. Arshad Dhunna. Rathod Jagdish.

Amitesh Arnav, India

Attending CCNA Security class from Manuhar Khan, he is delivering very good security lecture, very polite & answer all the queries. One thing that I must tell you about him, his example are really interesting by relating real environment, That you can't forget easily. Recommending OCTA NETWORKS 👌👌👌👌👌

Shan Vel

Octa network is such great place . To hole world global training Centre . I such a trainer is Jagdish Rathore sir provide training CCNA. / CCNP/ CCIE tramendous.. there his mind set .it's great mentor , trainer , motivations .he is practically Person. Repeated every dout particular topic Clear..

Gaurav Kabre

Currently, I am taking CCNA Data Center training which is lead by Mr. Ronak Vyas. I appreciate his efforts in guiding and explaining the DC concepts. Also, he answers all the questions or doubts raised by the participants after explaining the topic. Mr.Ronak very well explained step by step on concepts like UCS, OTV and VPC in Lab rack setup practically. Thanks Octa Networks
