This is an advanced course on Cisco switching planning, configuring, and verifying the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions. Students will gain the knowledge to configure and optimize a switched infrastructure using VLANs, STP, RSTP, MSTP, and HSRP. Additionally, students will be able to secure this switched infrastructure.


It is strongly recommended, but not required, that students have the following knowledge and skills to:

  • Describe network fundamentals.
  • Establish Internet and WAN connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6).
  • Manage network device security.
  • Operate a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree.
  • Troubleshoot IP connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6).
  • Configure and troubleshoot EIGRP and OSPF (IPv4 and IPv6).
  • Configure devices for SNMP, Syslog, and NetFlow access.
  • Manage Cisco device configurations, Cisco IOS images, and licenses.

Course outcome:

Upon completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe hierarchical campus structure, basic switch operation, use of SDM templates, PoE, and LLDP.
  • Implement VLANs, trunks, explain VTP, implement DHCP in IPv4 and IPv6 environment, and configure port aggregationt.
  • Implement and optimize STP mechanism that best suits your network - PVSTP+, RPVSTP+, or MSTP.
  • Configure routing on a multilayer switch.
  • Configure NTP, SNMP, IP SLA, port mirroring, and verify StackWise and VSS operation.
  • Implement First Hop redundancy in IPv4 and IPv6 environments.
  • Secure campus network according to recommended practices.

Who should attend:

  • System Engineers.
  • Network Consultants.
  • System Integrators.
