Cisco E-Learning for SWITCH v2.0 is an all-inclusive e-learning solution designed to prepare CCNP Routing and Switching or CCDP candidates for the exam topics covered by the SWITCH exam (300-115).

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.

A core element of this training is the ability to learn new concepts and reinforce understanding through a wide range of integrated lab scenarios. These labs utilize Cisco IOS Software with Layer 2 and Layer 3 features and a CLI supported on IOS version 15 releases.

This Cisco self-paced course is designed to be as effective as classroom training. Course content is presented in easily-consumable segments via both Instructor Video and text. Interactivity is enabled through Discovery labs, content review questions, and graded Challenge labs and tests. This makes the learning experience hands-on, increasing course effectiveness, and provides students direct feedback on how well they have mastered the material. And gamification features are built in, including earning badges and a leaderboard, to encourage better performance.

Course Objectives

Upon completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the 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 aggregation
  • 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
