Cisco SWITCH 2.0: Inter-VLAN Routing

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
97 minutes

To transport packets among VLANs, you need a Layer 3 device. This device can be either a router or a switch with Layer 3 capabilities. Inter-VLAN routing can be performed by an external router that uses a separate link for each VLAN. Because the number of physical connections on a switch is limited, this solution is not scalable. A better solution is to have a single trunk link, between the router and the switch, that carries data for all VLANs. This setup is commonly called a router on a stick or a one-armed router. A convenient solution is to have a device, such as a multilayer switch, that combines switching and routing functions into one device. In that case, no external router is needed. In this course, you’ll learn how to configure an external router for inter-VLAN routing and learn the steps the configure routing on a multilayer switch. 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.
