SWITCH v2.0, a five-day ILT course, includes major updates and follows an updated blueprint. Some older topics have been removed or simplified, while several new IPv6 routing topics have been added.


TARGET AUDIENCE:
Learners who aim to be network professionals and who have knowledge that is obtained from Cisco CCNA courses.

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 aggregation3. Implement and optimize the STP mechanism that best suits your network: PVST+, Rapid PVST+, or MST4. 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
