    Course Description

    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 and 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.

    Certification Track

    • CCNP Routing and Switching

    Knowledge Gained:

    • 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
