CCNP SWITCH - Implementing Cisco IP Switched Training

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.

Skills 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

Who Can Benefit

  • Network engineers and technicians
  • Support engineers
