The Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks class will prepare you for the SWITCH 300-115 exam while learning to plan, configure and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions that use the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture. Through the hands-on lab component of the class, you will develop the knowledge and skills needed to create an efficient and expandable enterprise network. The course 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.
Upon successful completion of this course- participants will be able to meet these overall objectives: Analyze the impact of traffic types on the network infrastructure Describe the Cisco Lifecycle Services and Network Implementation Implementing VLANs in Campus Network 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. Configuring Layer 3 Redundancy with HSRP. Configure DHCP services on a Layer 3 switch-for both IPv4 and IPv6. Configuring Layer 2 and Layer 3 port aggregation. Implementing 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. Configuring Layer 3 Redundancy with VRRP and GLBP. Implementing network security 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 Analyzing Campus Network Designs. Design a network that includes multilayer switching over Fast Ethernet through the use of Cisco products and services.
