This course is designed to help network professionals improve the skills and knowledge that they need to maintain their network and to diagnose and resolve network problems quickly and effectively. It also assists the network professional in preparing for Cisco CCNP certification. This course is a component of the CCNP curriculum. The course is designed to teach professionals who work in complex network environments the skills that they need to maintain their networks and to diagnose and resolve network problems quickly and effectively. The course will provide information about troubleshooting and maintaining particular technologies, as well as procedural and organizational aspects of the troubleshooting and maintenance process. A large part of the training will consist of practicing these skills and reinforcing the concepts by putting them to use in a controlled environment. At the end of the course, the students will have increased their skill level and developed a set of best practices that are based on their own experience and the experiences of other students and that they can take back to their organizations.
In addition to CCNA certification, it is recommended that the student have practical experience in installing, operating, and maintaining Cisco routers and switches in an enterprise environment. It is also recommended that the student have knowledge and experience with the implementation and verification of routing and switching technologies as offered by the Implementing Cisco Switched Networks (SWITCH) and Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) courses or equivalent skills and knowledge. This includes knowledge and experience of the following technologies:-Layer 2 switching-Private VLANs, VLAN access control lists, port security-Switch security issues-Link aggregation protocols-Spanning Tree Protocol (STP)-Multiple Spanning Tree (MST)-Per VLAN Spanning Tree (PVST)-Per VLAN Rapid Spanning Tree (PVRST) -Inter-VLAN routing solutions-First Hop Redundancy Protocols (FHRPs)-Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP-Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)-Gateway Load Balancing Protocol (GLBP)-Infrastructure support of wireless, VoIP and video-Branch office operations-Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)-Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)-Layer 3 path control-Redistribution-External Border Gateway Protocol (EBGP)-IP version 6 (IPv6) migration
