Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks v2.0


Course Description


Overview

Implementing Cisco® IP Switched Networks (SWITCH) Version 2.0 is a Cisco Training on Demand course. It helps you create an efficient and expandable enterprise network by installing, configuring, and verifying network infrastructure equipment according to the Cisco enterprise campus architecture. In this version, the course demonstrates several new IPv6 routing topics that have been added. The course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS® Software Release 15 and technically updated. This course teaches many of the skills you need to build a strong toolset of knowledge around Layer 2 of the OSI model, how to implement the protocols and technologies of the Layer 2 Cisco network, and provides an extremely well-rounded knowledge base of the protocols and technologies that exist at Layer 2 and how to configure and verify them in a Cisco based network. In addition, this course teaches the hierarchical campus structure and how to perform basic switch operations, configure technologies such as Power over Ethernet (PoE), VLAN, trunking, VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP), and implement Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Version 4 (DHCPv4) and v6, as well as port aggregation to group numerous physical switchboards together to make a logical bundle. The course also teaches how to implement and optimize many of the shielded twisted pair (STP) types, such as Per-VLAN Spanning Tree (PVST) Plus, Rapid PVST Plus, and Multiple Spanning Tree (MST).  

Audience

This course is designed for network engineers and technicians, support engineers, system engineers, network analysts, senior network administrators, and those preparing for the 300-115 SWITCH exam.
