Overview

All Scheduled Dates are Guaranteed-to-Run!

All of the classes are taught from our Exton facility utilizing High-Definition Instructor Led Training (HD-ILT). What exactly is HD-ILT?

HD-ILT™ is the world’s first distance training system utilizing state-of-the-art, life-size high-definition video & audio combined with patented remote lab access. This unique combination provides students with live training and the same experience as if they were actually in the classroom with the instructor.

Implementing Cisco Switched Networks (SWITCH) v2.0 is a five-day instructor-led training course developed to help students prepare for Cisco CCNP certification. The ROUTE course is a component of the CCNP Routing and Switching curriculum. 

This course is designed to help learners create an efficient and expandable enterprise network by installing, configuring, and verifying network infrastructure equipment according to the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture.  Some older topics from Version 1 have been removed or simplified, while several new IPv6 routing topics have been added. The course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS Software Release 15 and technically updated.

Intended Audience

​This course is appropriate for learners with Cisco CCNA-level knowledge who aim to be network professionals. Typical job roles include network engineers, support engineers, systems engineers or network technicians.


At Completion

After completing this course, students will be able to...

  • 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 environments, 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, 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

Prerequisites

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:


Exams & Certifications

SWITCH is is associated with the CCNP Certification. Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) validates the ability to plan, implement, verify and troubleshoot local and wide-area enterprise networks and work collaboratively with specialists on advanced security, voice, wireless and video solutions. The CCNP certification is 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. Those who achieve CCNP have demonstrated the skills required in enterprise roles such as network technician, support engineer, systems engineer or network engineer.
