Who Should Attend This Course

Network engineers and technicians, support engineers, systems engineers, network analysts, senior network administrator or anyone involved in planning, implementing, verifying, and troubleshooting switch-based solutions in enterprise networks who will need to correctly implement and/or support switch-based solutions. This course is intended for students who are looking for real-world switching knowledge, and those that are considering the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Routing and Switching. This course’s discussion of switching could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates.

Passing this exam will also refresh the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching certification, which expires after three years.


Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching certification is highly recommended
Knowledgde of the following:
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
