Cisco SWITCH 2.0: Campus Network Architecture II

This course is intended for students who are looking for real-world switching knowledge, and those that are considering CCNP and CCDP certification. This course’s discussion of switching could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates.


Expected Duration
174 minutes

Configuring IPv4 IP addresses on every device in the network can be a burdensome task. DHCP greatly reduces that administrative overhead and offers some additional features. DHCP can be used even to assign a specific IP address to a device. This can be useful for servers in your network. There are also DHCP options that offer additional information that can be pushed down to DHCP clients. Probably the most common example is DHCP option 150, which is used to tell IP phones the IP address of a TFTP server. IPv6 has a number of dynamic address allocation mechanisms, including stateless autoconfiguration, DHCPv6, and stateless DHCPv6 (also known as DHCPv6 Lite). EtherChannel can be used to bundle physical links in one virtual link, thus increasing throughput. There are multiple ways that traffic can be distributed over the physical links within the EtherChannel. The course covers how to negotiate, configure, and verify DHCP implementation, including how to manually assign IP addresses through DHCP. This course also covers how to implement DHCP for IPv6 and configure layer 2 port aggregation. This course offers the official training for the Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks 2.0 certification exam which is a component exam for the CCNP and CCDP certifications. Passing this exam will also refresh CCNA certification, which expires after three years.
