Course Objectives

Implementing Cisco Switched Networks (SWITCH) v2.0 is a five-day instructor-led training course, designed to help students prepare to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions for campus environments using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture. These skills are validated in the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification, a professional-level certification specializing in the routing and switching field.

This course is a component of the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching curriculum. This course is designed to give students a firm understanding of how to manage switches in an enterprise campus environment. This training class reinforces the instruction by providing students with hands-on labs.

Upon completing this course, you will be able to:

  • 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
