Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH)

Overview

Implementing Cisco Switched Networks (SWITCH) v2.0 is an instructor-led training course developed to help students prepare for Cisco CCNP certification. The ROUTE course is a component of the CCNP Routing and Switching curriculum. 
 
This course is designed to help learners create an efficient and expandable enterprise network by installing, configuring, and verifying network infrastructure equipment according to the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture.  Some older topics from Version 1 have been removed or simplified, while several new IPv6 routing topics have been added. The course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS Software Release 15 and technically updated.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, students 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 environments, and configure port aggregation
  • Implement and optimize STP mechanism that best suits your network - PVSTP+, RPVSTP+, or MSTP
  • Configure routing on a multilayer switch
  • Configure NTP, SNMP, IP SLA, and port mirroring, and verify StackWise and VSS operation
  • Implement first hop redundancy in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Secure the campus network according to recommended practices

Audience

This course is appropriate for learners with Cisco CCNA-level knowledge who aim to be network professionals. Typical job roles include network engineers, support engineers, systems engineers or network technicians.
