Description

CCNP Building Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN 642-812) Lab Portfolio provides you with opportunities for hands-on practice to master the technologies necessary to design, implement, operate, and troubleshoot multilayer switched networks. The labs reinforce your understanding of how to install, configure, monitor, and troubleshoot network infrastructure equipment to deploy state-of-the-art campus LANs. The book focuses on the selection and implementation of the appropriate Cisco(R) IOS(R) services to build reliable, scalable, multilayer-switched LANs. Other topic areas of the course include VLANs, Spanning Tree Protocol, wireless client access, minimizing service loss, and minimizing data theft in a campus network. Those preparing for the Building Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN 642-812) certification exam should work through this book cover-to-cover. If you need to quickly review configuration examples, you can go directly to the relevant chapter.C CNPBuildingMultilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN 642-812) Lab Portfolio includes *19 Labs built to support v5 of the Building Multilayer Switched Networks course within the Cisco Networking Academy curriculum providing ample opportunity to practice. *2 Challenge and Troubleshooting Labs have been added to the core curriculum to test your mastery of the topics. *2 Case Studies to give you a taste of what is involved in a fully functioning switching network covering all the technologies taught in this course. Even if you do not have the actual equipment to configure these more complex topologies, it is worth reading through these labs to expand your thinking into more complex networking solutions.
