Course detail

Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH)

FIT-C2PAcad. year: 2019/2020

The course learn students how to configure network switches on L2 and L3, how to implement VLAN networks, configure STP and RSTP. The part of the course is PoE configuration and WLAN networks. The course presents techniques for switch security.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students learn how to configure L2 and L3 switches including VLAN networks. They will understand STP and RSTP. They will be able to configure high-availability redundancy using HSRP and GLBP. They will learn about Power over Ethernet. They will learn how to implement WLAN networks and security switches against common threats. The obtained knowledge covers CCNP SWITCH certification requirements.

Prerequisites

Students are required to successfully pass CCNA4 Exploration course in Network Academy or hold CCNA certification.
