Description

Many engineers work their whole careers without ever really looking under the hood to understand why a network was designed the way it was. Some of this is because their day-to-day duties don't require this knowledge, and some of this is because an engineer chooses to focus their knowledge on becoming exceptional operational engineers. In this course, Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks: Advanced Enterprise Campus Networks, you will take a closer look at Campus LAN technologies including some discussion about how they work, as well as how they can be fitted together to form a well designed campus LAN network. First, you will explore hierarchy and how it is used in a networking environment. Next, you will be taught about the common layer 1 and layer 2 concepts, features, and technologies. This includes everything from cabling connectors and cables to spanning tree and VLANs. Then, you will learn about high availability and how these different technologies and features improve on those covered previously, as well as covers the design recommendations for them. Finally, you will discover the design recommendations for the aforementioned items. By the end of this course, you will have a firm base of understanding about the available layer 1 and 2 technologies that are implemented on Campus LANs, and have a good understanding of how many of these different technologies can be implemented together to form a well designed network from the access to the core layers.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Welcome to plural sight. My name is Sean Wilkins, and I am a network engineer, author and technical editor at In Foetus version. I'm excited to welcome you to my course designing Cisco Enterprise Networks, Advanced Enterprise Campus Networks. This course is one of many courses that are being introduced into the pleural site library to cover networking design. While the network designed topic generally can be thought of his rather dry to learn about, this course is structured to cover the topics at a pace that should keep the viewer's attention while at the same time covering the topics. Key points. This course specifically is targeted on campus land technologies, including some discussion about how they work, as well as how they could be fitted together to form a well designed campus land network. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the basics of networking hierarchy, campus land, physical technologies, including cabling and connector types, campus land later, two technologies like spanning tree and feelings, as well as campus land, high availability technologies like switch stacking and Cisco stock wise virtual. By the end of this course, you have a firm base of understanding about the available Layer one and two technologies that are implemented on campus lands. You will also have a good understanding of how many of these different technologies can be implemented together to form a well designed network from the access through the core layers. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with basic networking functionality, including knowing the purpose and function of various common network elements like switches, routers and firewalls. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn about networking design with a designing Cisco Enterprise Networks Advanced Enterprise Campus Networks course at plural site.
