Cisco CCNP R&S: SWITCH

Cisco CCNP R&S: SWITCH

Course Overview

Cisco CCNP R&S: SWITCH online training course provides 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.

Exam Number: 300-115 SWITCH

Skills Learned

  • 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 This Course

Network engineers and technicians, support engineers, systems engineers, network analysts, senior network administrator or anyone involved in planning, implementing, verifying, and troubleshooting switch-based solutions in enterprise networks who will need to correctly implement and/or support switch-based solutions. Thiscourse is intended for students who are looking for real-world switching knowledge, and those that are considering the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Routing and Switching. Thiscourse’s discussion of switching could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates.

Passing this exam will also refresh the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching certification, which expires after three years.

Prerequisites

Knowledge of the following:

  • Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switchingcertification is highly recommended
  • 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
