Course Content

SWITCH is one of three courses associated with tests required to earn the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification. The SWITCH course builds on the switching skills that the student developed in the CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum. This course will prepare students to design, implement, and manage complex enterprise switching environments using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture though lectures and hands-on lab exercises.

Who should attend

  • Network Engineers
  • Network Operations Center (NOC) Technical Support Personnel
  • Help Desk Technicians
  • A network professional who will need to correctly implement switch-based solutions given a network design using Cisco IOS services and features
  • Any individual involved in network operations and support

Certifications

Prerequisites

You must have the following knowledge and skills before attending the SWITCH course:

  • Describing network fundamentals
  • Establishing Internet and WAN connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Basic networking security
  • Operating a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree
  • Troubleshooting IP connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Configuring and troubleshooting EIGRP and OSPF (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Configuring devices for SNMP, syslog, and NetFlow access
  • Managing Cisco device configurations, Cisco IOS images, and licenses

It is highly recommended that this course be taken after the following Cisco 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 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
