Cisco SWITCH 2.0: Configuring Layer 3 Redundancy with VRRP and GLBP

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
132 minutes

FHRP is a category of protocols that includes HSRP, as well as VRRP and GLBP. All three protocols have versions that support first-hop redundancy not only in IPv4 environments, but also in IPv6 environments. However, not all platforms and their Cisco IOS versions support all of these three protocols for both IPv4 and IPv6. In this course you’ll learn how to configure and verify VRRP and GLBP. You’ll also learn how to configure and verify GLBP in an IPv6 environment. 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.


Configuring Layer 3 Redundancy with VRRP and GLBP

  • start the course

Configuring Layer 3 Redundancy with GLBP

  • describe the basic idea behind GLBP
  • compare GLBP to HSRP
  • describe the possible states of the GLBP virtual gateway and virtual forwarder
  • recognize the benefits of GLBP
  • configure GLBP
  • configure GLBP
  • verify GLBP
