Course description
This course teaches the networking skills needed for modern, open standard-based networking technologies, and solutions. It covers how to implement and validate small to medium enterprise network solutions. You will work on Comware and ProVision based switches in the lab exercises. The course introduces you to the basic features of modern networks such as VLANs, redundancy technologies such as MSTP, link aggregation technologies like LACP, static and dynamic IP routing with OSPF, standalone Access Points (APs), and network management with HPE’s Intelligent Management Center (IMC). It also covers a high-level introduction to HPE’s Converged Infrastructure strategy and to network virtualization with HPE’s Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF). The focus of this course is on the hands on activities accompanied with learning activities and instructor led lecture.
