Businesses and consumers that rely on intranet and Internet services for their mission-critical communications require and expect their networks and applications to be continuously available to them. A network with high availability provides an alternative means by which all infrastructure paths and key servers can be accessed at all times. It is important for you as a Cisco administrator to know how to implement high availability using Cisco IOS software. Features such as Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) provide Layer 3 redundancy to network hosts. Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and Gateway Load Balancing Protocol (GLBP) are used to provide additional Layer 3 redundancy features such as load balancing.
This course covers how to configure Layer 3 redundancy with HSRP, VRRP and GLBP.
Configuring Layer 3 Redundancy with HSRP
- identify routing issues
- configure HSRP operations
- fine-tune HSRP operations
- monitor and verify HSRP operations
- debug HSRP operations
Configuring Layer 3 Redundancy with VRRP and GLBP
- configure VRRP operations
- identify the features of GLBP
- implement GLBP
- configure HSRP and VRRP on a Cisco device
