Cisco SWITCH 1.0: Analyzing Campus Network Designs

Over the last 50 years, businesses have achieved improving levels of productivity and competitive advantages through the use of communication and computing technology. Over the past 20 years the enterprise campus network has evolved, becoming a key element in this business computing and communication infrastructure. The increasing complexity of business and network requirements creates an environment where a fixed model no longer completely describes the set of capabilities and services that constitute the campus network today. The Cisco Life-cycle Services model uses a structural approach which is key to ensuring that the network always meets the requirements of the end users. This course covers the tools required to understand how campus networks can be built, what models can be used, which practices should be avoided, and which principles should guide you to ensure a successful implementation. The Cisco Life-cycle Services approach and its impact on network implementation are also detailed.

Learning Objectives
  • Identify the benefits of Cisco SONA
  • Recognize the features of the Enterprise Campus Architecture
  • Recognize the function of the core layer
  • Identify the impact of network traffic types on the network infrastructure
  • Identify the phases of the PPDIOO life-cycle approach
  • Plan a network implementation
  • Analyze a campus network and its components

Cisco SWITCH 1.0: Implementing VLANs in Campus Networks

When a network architect hands off a design to you, you must be able to create an implementation plan based on your knowledge of VLANs. As a Cisco administrator, it is important that you understand the purpose of VLANs and how VLAN implementation can simplify network management and troubleshooting, and can improve network performance. You must be able to create an implementation plan, implement that plan, and then verify the operation of the VLANs and trunks. Sometimes network resources may be located far from where users might need them, and links between switches or between switches and servers can become heavily solicited. The speed of these links can be increased, but only to a certain point. Etherchannel is a technology that allows you to circumvent this issue by creating logical links made up of several physical links. This course explains how to implement VLANs in a network campus. It includes the process on how to create a VLAN implementation plan, implement that plan, and then verify the operation of the VLANs and trunks based on business and technical requirements. Using Etherchannel technology to configure link aggregation is also detailed.

Learning Objectives
  • Create a plan for the implementation of VLANs in a campus environment
  • Configure VLANs
  • Configure trunks
  • Configure VTP
  • Verify VLAN and trunk operations

  • Configure and verify Layer 2 EtherChannels
  • Configure load balancing for ports in an EtherChannel

Cisco SWITCH 1.0: Implementing Spanning-Tree

Multiple active paths between switches can cause loops in the network topology. This can cause duplication of frames being forwarded. To prevent loops while providing path redundancy, you can use Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). One limitation of the traditional Spanning Tree Protocol (STP; IEEE 802.1D) is the convergence delay after a topology change. In response, several enhancements were made to improve this convergence time by adding specific Cisco features to the original 802.1D protocol, and by creating new protocols that are faster or more efficient. This course explores the various enhancements to STP and explains how to implement and configure the original Spanning Tree Protocol, and its Cisco enhancements, Per VLAN Rapid Spanning-Tree Plus (PVRST+) and Multiple Spanning-Tree (MST).

  • Configure UDLD to detect and shut down unidirectional links
  • Recognize how to optimize STP operations
  • Configure FlexLinks

Cisco SWITCH 1.0: Inter-VLAN Routing

When a network architect hands off a design to you, switches at the distribution layer, or in a collapsed core, will almost certainly have multiple VLANs connected to them. A switch with multiple VLANs requires a means of passing Layer 3 traffic between those VLANs. As an administrator, you must understand the process and the various methods of routing traffic from VLAN to VLAN such as using an external router or a multilayer switch. It is also important to understand how to configure features such as DHCP services and Layer 3 Etherchannel. This course covers how to perform inter-VLAN packet transfer using an external router. It discusses the process that a multilayer switch uses to forward frames and packets. In addition, the course describes the configuration of multilayer switching, routed interfaces, DHCP services, and Layer 3 EtherChannels.

  • Identify the functions of Layer 3 switch processing
  • Identify the switching methods available on a Cisco switch
  • Configure Cisco Express Forwarding on a Cisco switch

Cisco SWITCH 1.0: Highly Available Networks

A network with high availability provides an alternate means of allowing constant access to all infrastructure paths and key servers. High availability is not only about adding redundant devices. It also implies planning with an eye on where the points of failure occur, and to design the network so that these points of failure can be compensated for. As a Cisco administrator it is important for you to have the knowledge required to implement a highly available network. This course covers how to evaluate the uses, requirements, benefits, and performance expectations for high availability in a given enterprise network design as well as how to implement a high availability solution according to a given network design and requirements. An explanation of how to construct implementation and verification plans to implement a highly available network solution by monitoring the infrastructure resources that are affected, selecting the required tools and commands, is also provided.

  • Configure network monitoring on Cisco switches

Cisco SWITCH 1.0: Configuring Layer 3 High Availability

Businesses and consumers that rely on intranet and Internet services for their mission-critical communications require and expect their networks and applications to be continuously available to them. A network with high availability provides an alternative means by which all infrastructure paths and key servers can be accessed at all times. It is important for you as a Cisco administrator to know how to implement high availability using Cisco IOS software. Features such as Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) provide Layer 3 redundancy to network hosts. Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and Gateway Load Balancing Protocol (GLBP) are used to provide additional Layer 3 redundancy features such as load balancing. This course covers how to configure Layer 3 redundancy with HSRP, VRRP and GLBP.

Cisco SWITCH 1.0: Minimizing Service Loss and Data Theft

In a switched network, a host of attacks can be launched at a switch and its ports. MAC flooding, rogue traffic "hopping" from one VLAN to another, spoofing attacks, as well as DHCP and Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) threats can occur at Layer 2. It is important that you implement basic security measures to guard against these types of Layer 2 malicious activities. This course defines the potential vulnerabilities relating to VLANs that can occur within a network. After the vulnerabilities are identified, solutions for each vulnerability are discussed, and configuration commands are defined. This course discusses port security for denial of MAC spoofing and MAC flooding, and the use of private VLANs (PVLANs) and VLAN access control lists (VACLs) to control VLAN traffic. VLAN hopping, DHCP spoofing, Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing, and Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) attacks are also explained. In addition, potential problems and their solutions, and the method for securing the switch access, with use of vty access control lists (ACLs), and implementing the Secure Shell (SSH) Protocol for secure Telnet access are also covered.

Cisco SWITCH 1.0: Accommodating Voice and Video in Campus Networks

When you are migrating to a VoIP network, all network requirements, including power and capacity planning, must be examined so that voice is seamlessly integrated into the existing network. IP telephony services provided over the campus infrastructure must have mechanisms set in place to differentiate traffic types and to offer priority processing to delay sensitive voice traffic. Congestion avoidance techniques, quality of service (QoS), and high availability also need to be implemented to ensure an optimal flow throughout the network. This course covers how to plan for support of voice in a campus network. Congestion considerations for voice and video traffic in relation to bandwidth consumption are explained. Quality of service (QoS) policies that mark and qualify traffic as it traverses the campus switch blocks and the creation of specific voice VLANs to separate voice traffic from other data to ensure that it is carried through the network with special handling and with minimal delay are also covered.

Cisco SWITCH 1.0: Integrating Wireless LANs into a Campus Network

Wireless LAN (WLAN) is an access technology that has an increasing significance for network access in offices, factories, hotels, and airports, and at home. WLANs are often compared to standard LANs and are often seen as "LANs without cables". Although WLANS have similarities to wired LANs, they also present important differences that you need to understand in order to perform a successful integration. The integration of wireless technology into the LAN network is a lot more than just merely connecting access points (APs) to access switches. WLAN integration into the campus network is very different depending on whether an autonomous solution or a controller-based solution is expected. Device placements, port configurations, VLAN design, and configuration will depend heavily on the type of deployment. This course introduces WLANs. It will explain the differences between wired and wireless LANs, describe basic WLAN topologies, and explain how to prepare the campus networks for the integration of WLANs.
