Deploying HPE FlexNetwork Core Technologies, Rev 14.31 (H8D06S)

Deploying HPE FlexNetwork Core Technologies provides you with a comprehensive set of networking skills which will increase your capability to simplify the journey to a unified campus network. Upon course completion, you will be able to successfully implement and troubleshoot enterprise-level HPE FlexNetwork solutions

This course includes comprehensive labs on which learners will have hands-on experience with Comware and ProVision switches, including configuring HPE switches supporting Layer 2 and Layer 3 network redundancy, dynamic routing with OSPF and BGP, network optimization via QoS, and IP multicast routing supported network systems. Additionally, you will extend your knowledge of Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) and how switch virtualization technology simplifies network design and operation. HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC), which allows network engineers and technicians to quickly and easily configure Quality of Service (QoS) and end-user authentication technologies, is featured throughout the course. This course is approximately fifty percent lecture and learning activities and fifty percent lab activities. The Deploying HPE FlexNetwork Core Technologies course prepares candidates for the HPE Accredited Solutions Expert (ASE)—FlexNetwork Integrator V1 certification within the HPE ExpertOne program.


IT Professionals who deploy enterprise/core solutions based on HPE products and technologies, including HPE Reseller Systems Engineers, Customer IT Staff, HPE System Engineers, and HPE Services Field and Call Center Support Engineers.

What is new?

Deploying HPE FlexNetwork Core Technologies is a new course that combines the best of two courses, HPE Core/ Distribution Network Technologies using Comware Software, Rev. 11.41 and HPE Core/Distribution Network Technologies using ProVision Software, Rev. 10.41. The new course brings together both switch families in a single, comprehensive training. HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC) network management software is the tool connecting it all together that delivers integrated, modular management capabilities across fault, configuration, accounting, performance, and security needs. Additionally the Deploying HPE FlexNetwork Core Technologies course includes security related features and technologies such as Access Control Lists (ACLs) and port authentication.
