Server 2016: Advanced Network Infrastructures

Individuals who will manage the planning, implementing, and configuration of core networking services in Windows 2016 Server environments, and individuals preparing for the Microsoft Networking with Windows Server 2016 (70-741) exam


Expected Duration
94 minutes

Networks need to continue to be responsive even in the face of NIC and network failures. In this course, you’ll explore advanced networking options supported in Windows Server 2016 including NIC and Switch Embedded Teaming, and options for software-defined networking (SDN). This course aligns with the Networking with Windows Server 2016 (70-741) exam.


Implement High-performance Networks

  • start the course
  • implement NIC Teaming
  • implement the Switch Embedded Teaming (SET) solution
  • identify when to use NIC Teaming or the Switch Embedded Teaming (SET) solution
  • configure Receive Side Scaling (RSS)
  • configure network Quality of Service (QoS) with Data Center Bridging (DCB)
  • configure SMB Direct on Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) enabled network adapters
  • enable and configure SMB Multichannel
  • configure Virtual Machine Multi-Queue (VMMQ)
  • configure virtual Receive Side Scaling (vRSS) on a Virtual Machine Queue (VMQ) capable network adapter
  • configure Single-Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) on a supported network adapter

Software-defined Networking (SDN)

  • determine deployment scenarios and network requirements for deploying software-defined Networking (SDN)
  • determine requirements for implementing Hyper-V Network Virtualization (HNV) using Network Virtualization Generic Route Encapsulation (NVGRE)
  • determine requirements and scenarios for implementing Hyper-V Network Virtualization (HNV) using Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) encapsulation
  • determine implementation scenarios for the Software Load Balancer (SLB), including North-South and East-West load balancing
  • determine implementation scenarios for Windows Server Gateways, including L3, GRE, and S2S
  • determine usage scenarios and requirements for distributed firewall policies and network security groups

Practice: Create a High-performance Network

  • create a high-performance network using advanced network infrastructure solutions
