Cisco authorized self-study book for CCNP Switching foundation learning
Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks is a Cisco authorized self-paced learning tool. It teaches you how to build and manage campus networks using multilayer switching technologies. The book addresses both routing and switching concepts, covering both Layer 2 and Layer 3 technologies. If you are pursuing CCNP or CCDP certification, this book helps you with strong and accurate early study material.
Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks presents detailed information on how routing and switching technologies work together. This book first defines Cisco recommended campus network design methodologies. You will receive an in-depth analysis of Layer 2 switching technologies, including Spanning Tree, VLAN technologies, frame tagging protocols, and Cisco proprietary support protocols such as VTP and DTP. The book then covers Layer 3 routing services provided in the campus network, including inter-VLAN routing, multilayer switching, Hot Standby Routing Protocol (HSRP), and IP multicast. Finally, the book covers securing the switched campus network model, including setting passwords, local and remote login, modifying default privilege levels, and applying Layer 3 traffic management techniques to the campus network. Several case studies demonstrate the implementation of multilayer switching technologies. Additionally, each chapter contains questions to help you assess your understanding of key concepts and start you down the path for attaining your CCNP or CCDP certification.
Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks is part of a recommended learning path from Cisco Systems that can include simulation and hands-on training from authorized Cisco Learning Partners and self-study products from Cisco Press.Books in this series provide officially developed training solutions to help networking professionals understand technology implementations and prepare for the Cisco Career Certifications examinations....Continua
