Cisco SWITCH 2.0: STP Tuning and PVST and RSTP Implementation

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.

Prerequisite
None

Expected Duration
129 minutes

Description
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, redundant topology also causes problems, such as loops. STP provides network link redundancy while eliminating these problems. The course covers RSTP implementation including the need, standards, and operation of STP. This course also covers BPDUs, and the Root Bridge, Root Port, and Designated Port selection process. In addition this course lists and explains STP and RSTP port states, concepts of PVST, RSTP and STP port roles and how STP handles topology changes. 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.
