VLANs are a great concept and are widely used throughout the networking industry. The idea of a VLAN is simply that an administrator has the ability to configure a switch such that there are multiple broadcast domains enabled, and inter-broadcast domain communication is not allowed. Effectively, a VLAN is a broadcast domain. In this course, VLAN Operation and Configuration, you will cover all things VLAN related. First, you will examine VLANs, VLAN trunks, the layer 3 switch. Next, you will set up a problematic network, and make errors during configuration. Finally, you will examine both how the network will behave and how to repair broken networks. After completing this course, you will be ready to segment a network with a single switch using VLANs.
Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Ross Bagurdes and welcome to my course villain Operation and configuration. I'm a network engineer with more than 20 years experience building and managing enterprise networks and teaching people about them. Villains are used in nearly every medium and large size business, and if you're providing networking to a data center, you will definitely use V lance to separate out different broadcast domains to allow for an efficient, secure and cost effective network. Understanding, villain and villains. Trunk operation is a critical component of being a network engineer, and understanding these concepts will lead one to success on the C. C A exams. Some of the major topics will include, in this course our view and basics villain trunk ing interview and routing and the Layer three switch. By the end of this course, you'll know how to segment a network with a single switch using V lance, as well as learn how to route traffic in between them. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Ethernet and Ethernet switching and understanding of our operation and to know the basics of I p routing from here, you should feel comfortable diving into the rest of the CCN a training Siri's. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn V lands and V land trunk ing with the villain operation and configuration course at Pluralsight.
