SWITCH Implementing Cisco Switched Networks v2

Course Details

NameSWITCH Implementing Cisco Switched Networks v2
DescriptionImplementing Cisco Switched Networks (CSWITCH) v1.0 is a five-day instructor-led training course, designed to help students prepare to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions for campus environments using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture. These skills are validated in the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification, a professional-level certification specializing in the routing and switching field. This course is a component of the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching curriculum. This course is designed to give students a firm understanding of how to manage switches in an enterprise campus environment. This training class reinforces the instruction by providing students with hands-on labs.   The primary audience for this course is as follows: A network professional who will need to correctly implement switch-based solutions given a network design using Cisco IOS services and features. The typical job roles for this type of professional are network engineers, network operations center (NOC) technical support personnel, or help desk technicians. The secondary audience for this course is as follows: Any individual involved in network operations and support This course is part of the following Certifications: Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP) Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) The knowledge and skills that a student must have before attending this course are as follows: Knowledge and experience equivalent to having attended the Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 1 (CICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices Part 2 (CICND2) courses.

Overview

Implementing Cisco Switched Networks (SWITCH) v2.0 is a five-day instructor-led training course, designed to help delegates prepare to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions for campus environments using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture. These skills are validated in the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification, a professional-level certification specializing in the routing and switching field.

This course is a component of the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching curriculum. Labs are an important feature of this course with 2 different types of labs being used to aid learning, discovery labs are instructor guided labs through which delegates explore new topics in an interactive way, the challenge Labs are designed to test delegates understanding of the topics being taught and to provide vital hands-on practice.

Target Audience:

The primary audience for this course is:

  • A network professional who will need to correctly implement switch-based solutions given a network design using Cisco IOS services and features. The typical job roles for this type of professional are network engineers, network operations center (NOC) technical support personnel, or help desk technicians.

The secondary audience for this course is:

  • Any individual involved in network operations and support

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Describe the hierarchical campus structure, basic switch operation, use of SDM templates, PoE, and LLDP
  • Implement VLANs, trunks, explain VTP, implement DHCP in IPv4 and IPv6 environment, and configure port aggregation
  • Implement and optimize STP mechanism that best suits your network - PVSTP+, RPVSTP+, or MST
  • Configure routing on a multilayer switch
  • Configure NTP, SNMP, IP SLA, port mirroring, and verify StackWise and VSS operation
  • Implement First Hop redundancy in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Secure campus network according to recommended practices

Pre-Requisites

  • Knowledge and experience equivalent to having attended the Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 1 Version 2.0 and Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 Version 2.0  courses.

In addition, practical experience in installing, operating and maintaining Cisco routers & switches in an enterprise environment is recommended.
