Cisco SWITCH 2.0: Spanning Tree Implementation
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
A redundant topology can eliminate the possibility of a single point of failure causing a loss of function for the entire network; While it has benefits, a redundant topology also causes problems, such as loops. STP provides network link redundancy while eliminating these problems. In this course you will learn the need, standards, and operation of STP. You will also be able to explain BPDUs, the root bridge, the root port, and the designated port selection process.
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.
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.
