CCNP 2 (SWITCH): Implementing IP Switching

    The CCNP 2 (SWITCH) - Implementing IP Switching course prepares students for the following:

    • 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 MSTP
    • 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

    Appropriate for those with at least one year of networking experience who are ready to advance their skills and work independently on complex network solutions, such as network engineer, support engineer, systems engineer or network technician. This is an advanced course on Cisco switching planning, configuring, and verifying the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions. Students will gain the knowledge to configure and optimize a switched infrastructure using VLANs, STP, RSTP, MSTP, and HSRP. Additionally, students will be able to secure this switched infrastructure.
