In this course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to create an efficient and expandable enterprise network. You 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.


Lesson objectives help students become comfortable with the course, and also provide a means to evaluate learning. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
• 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
VLANs and trunks and how VTP works
• Configuring a device to be a DHCP server and relay agent, for both IPv4 and IPv6
• Configuring Layer 2 and Layer 3 port aggregation
• Different types of 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
• First hop redundancy protocols for IPv4 and IPv6 including HSRP, VRRP, and GLBP
• Implementing network security features 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


Taking ICND1 v2.0 and ICND2 v2.0 (or CCNAX v2.0) is highly recommended know how to:
• Configure network fundamentals, including the ability to establish Internet, LAN, and WAN connectivity using both IPv4 and IPv6
• Operate and support a medium-sized LAN that has multiple switches, including VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree functionality
• Troubleshoot IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity issues
• Configure and troubleshoot EIGRP and OSPF, for both IPv4 and IPv6
• Configure devices for SNMP, Syslog, and NetFlow
• Manage network device security, Cisco device configurations, Cisco IOS images, and licenses
• ICND1 v2.0 - Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1
• ICND2 v2.0 - Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2
• CCNAX v2.0 - CCNA Routing and Switching Boot Camp
