Building upon concepts from “Introduction to Networks”, “Routing and Switching Essentials” covers the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Participants learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, participants will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with single area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
Participants who complete the Routing and Switching Essentials course will be able to perform the following functions:
• Explain how switching operates in a small to medium-sized business network.
• Use monitoring tools and network management protocols to troubleshoot data networks.
• Configure monitoring tools available for small to medium-sized business networks.
• Configure initial settings on a network device.
• Configure Ethernet switch ports.
• Implement VLANs.
• Implement static routing.
• Implement DHCP on a router.
• Implement network address translation (NAT).
• Implement access control lists (ACLs) to filter traffic
