Curriculum


Layer 2 Technologies

Overview

This section gives the information about the exam Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks. It is the second of three exams required to obtain the Cisco Certified Network Professional certification. It focuses on Cisco switch implementation in medium and large environment. The topics covered range from HSRP, STP, VTP to Etherchannel and how and why we use them.

Switch Administration

This section explains how to configure and verify switch administration tasks. It covers the Ternary Content Addressable Memory (TCAM) table and how to use it to optimize switch functionality. It also explains MAC address tables administration and troubleshooting.

Layer 2 Protocols

This section discusses Layer 2 protocols that are supported by Cisco switches. It explains the Cisco Discovery Protocol, contrast CDP to LLDP (Link-Layer Discovery Protocol). At the end it covers Unidirectional Link Detection (UDLD) used to verify failed links.

VLANs and Trunking

This section explores Virtual Local Area Networks or VLANs. It describes VLAN details such as the VLAN database, default ranges, and how to crate and name a VLAN. It also shows VLAN options when dealing with VoIP traffic. It explains Dynamic Trunking Protocol (DTP) to set up auto trunking. It also covers Native VLANs, its different versions and how to setup the VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP).

Ether Channel

This section describes how to configure and verify Ether channel in Cisco switches. It gives the overview of what Etherchannel is, what its used for and configuring a switch using Etherchannel protocols like LACP, PAgP, and the Etherchannel protocol itself.

Spanning Tree

This section explains the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) switch loop prevention system found in Cisco switches. It gives the review of STP functions and explains how exactly it goes about keeping a switched network loop-free.

SPAN and RSPAN

This section explains how to monitor a switched network using Switch Port ANalyzer (SPAN). It demonstrates how to monitor a switched network using Remote Switch Port Analyzer (RSPAN).

Cisco StackWise

This section introduces the Cisco StackWise technology. It discusses the advantage of using StackWise and it’s benefits. It also shows how to configure a StackWise Master and provision other switches in the StackWise cluster.

Infrastructure Security

Switch Security Features

This section shows how to secure a network by employing DHCP Snooping. DHCP Snooping allows to configure the network to allow dynamic IP addressing from the ports for protecting from attacks via a rogue DHCP server. It explains how to prevent IP Spoofing attacks using IP Source Guard and for MAC Spoofing or ARP poisoning attacks.

First-Hop Redundancy

This section explains how to set up switch network to survive a failure using the Hot-Standby Redundancy Protocol (HSRP). It explains how HRSP is designed to work by creating a network of switches that are ready at a moments notice to take over for a failed switch. It also shows how to configure HSRP in the network.

Layer 3 Switching

This section takes a look at the benefits and features of Layer 3 switches . It discusses the limitations of using Layer 3 switches. It also shows the basic inter-vlan configuration on a Layer 3 switch.
