Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks v2.0

Vendor: Cisco
Course Outline

SWITCH is one of three courses associated with tests required to earn the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification. The SWITCH course builds on the switching skills that the student developed in the CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum. This course will prepare students to design, implement, and manage complex enterprise switching environments using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture though lectures and hands-on lab exercises.

Prerequisites & Audience

The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this curriculum are as follows:

  • Describing network fundamentals
  • Establishing Internet and WAN connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Managing network device security
  • Operating a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree
  • Troubleshooting IP connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Configuring and troubleshooting EIGRP and OSPF (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Configuring devices for SNMP, syslog, and NetFlow access
  • Managing Cisco device configurations, Cisco IOS images, and licenses

It is highly recommended that this course be taken after the following Cisco courses:

  • "Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 1, Version 2.0 (ICND1)" and "Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2, Version 2.0 (ICND2)", or
  • "Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices: Accelerated v2.0 (CCNAX)"
Course Objectives
  • Describe the hierarchical campus structure, basic switch operation, use of SDM templates, PoE, and LLDP
  • Implement VLANs and trunks, explain VTP, implement DHCP in IPv4 and IPv6 environments, and configure port aggregation
  • Implement and optimize the STP mechanism that best suits your network: PVST+, Rapid PVST+, or MST
  • Configure routing on a multilayer switch
  • Configure NTP, SNMP, IP SLA, and port mirroring, and verify StackWise and VSS operation
  • Implement first-hop redundancy in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Secure the campus network according to recommended practices
