CCNP Routing and Switching – SWITCH

SKU: NCX-CC-P-SW Category: Tags: ,

Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH)

CCNP Routing and Switching

Routing & Switching is the mainstay of Cisco training courses and career advancement. Routing & Switching concepts underpin most of the network technology in use today.

Understanding networking is fundamental to designing, implementing, managing, analyzing, and troubleshooting networking issues and preventing the downtime which is so bad for business.

CCNP Routing and Switching training provides the networking professional with the knowledge to successfully manage enterprise-level networks.

This 5-day course is one of three which prepare students for the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) – Routing & Switching certification exams.


SWITCH Training for CCNP Wireless Certification

Course Objectives

  • Implement VLANs, trunks, explain VTP, implement DHCP in IPv4 and IPv6 environment, and configure port aggregation
  • Implement and optimize STP mechanism that best suits your network – PVSTP+, RPVSTP+, or MSTP
  • Configure routing on a multilayer switch
  • Configure NTP, SNMP, IP SLA, port mirroring, and verify StackWise and VSS operation
  • Implement First Hop redundancy in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Secure campus network according to recommended practices


  • Describing network fundamentals
  • Establishing Internet and WAN connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Managing network device security

SWITCH Course Outline

SWITCH includes major updates and follows an updated blueprint. However, note that this course does not cover all items listed on the blueprint. Some older topics have been removed or simplified, while several new IPv6 routing topics have been added.

Course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS software release 15 and technically updated.

Course also introduces new type of labs, called discovery labs. Discovery labs are instructor-guided lab through which student explores new topics in an interactive way. All labs are developed only as virtual labs.

  • Module 1: Basic Concepts and Network Design

  • Module 3: Spanning Tree Implementation
  • Module 4: Configuring Inter-VLAN Routing
  • Module 5: Implementing High Availability Networks
  • Module 6: First Hop Redundancy Implementation
  • Module 7: Campus Network Security
