This course is 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.
5 Days/Lecture & Lab
This course is intended for those engineers who are candidates for Cisco CCNP certifications as well as those who are candidates for Cisco CCIE Routing and Switching and CCIE certifications. Others who will benefit from this course are: -Network professionals who will need to correctly implement switch-based solutions given a network design using Cisco IOS services and features. The typical job roles for this type of professional are network engineers; network operations center (NOC) technical support personnel, or help desk technicians. -Any individual involved in network operations and support.
