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.

What You'll 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

Who Should Attend

  • Network engineers and technicians
  • Support engineers
  • Systems engineers
  • Network analysts
  • Senior network administrators
  • Anyone involved in planning, implementing, verifying, and troubleshooting switch-based solutions in enterprise networks

Prerequisites

  • Taking ICND1 v2.0 and ICND2 v2.0 (or CCNAX v2.0) is highly recommended
  • Know how to:
    • Configure network fundamentals, including the ability to establish Internet, LAN, and WAN connectivity using both IPv4 and IPv6
    • Operate and support a medium-sized LAN that has multiple switches, including VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree functionality
    • Troubleshoot IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity issues
    • Configure and troubleshoot EIGRP and OSPF, for both IPv4 and IPv6
    • Configure devices for SNMP, Syslog, and NetFlow
    • Manage network device security, Cisco device configurations, Cisco IOS images, and licenses
