SWITCH - Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks v2.0

SWITCH - Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks v2.0

Gain advanced skills to create an efficient and expandable enterprise network using Layer 2 and multilayer switches.

COURSE OVERVIEW

In this course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to create an efficient and expandable enterprise network. You will focus on Layer 2, multilayer switch functions including VLANs, trunks, inter-VLAN routing, port aggregation, spanning tree; first hop redundancy, as well as network security, and high availability features.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Components of the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture including the operation of Layer 2 and multilayer switches
  • Switching Database Manager (SDM) templates and how they are used
  • Implementing device features including LLDP and PoE
  • VLANs and trunks and how VTP works
  • Configuring a device to be a DHCP server and relay agent, for both IPv4 and IPv6
  • Configuring Layer 2 and Layer 3 port aggregation
  • Different types of spanning tree protocols and mechanisms, including STP, RSTP, and MST
  • Implementing inter-VLAN routing on both a router and a multilayer switch
  • Network high availability including NTP, SNMPv3, IP SLA, port mirroring, and switch virtualization
  • First hop redundancy protocols for IPv4 and IPv6 including HSRP, VRRP, and GLBP
  • Implementing network security features including port security, storm control, DHCP snooping, IP source guard, dynamic ARP inspection, VLAN ACLs, and private VLANs
  • Using an external authentication server in your network, including implementing IEEE 802.1x
