Introduction
Network Fundamentals
  • What is a network?
  • What is a Protocol?
  • OSI Reference Model
  • Encapsulation, frames, packets, segments
  • Layer 2 to Layer 7 headers
  • Media, cabling, Ethernet/wifi headers
  • Binary/Hex/Decimal theory and conversion
  • TCP/IP Stack (IP addressing & Transport Protocols TCP/UDP)
  • Types of traffic: Unicast, Broadcast, Multicast
TCP/IP Stack
  • Overview
  • Ethernet frames
  • IPv4 Header
  • TCP Header – Three-way Handshake
  • TCP Header – Sequence Numbers
  • TCP Header – Port Numbers
  • TCP Header
  • UPD Header
Basic Networking with Aruba Solutions
  • Networking devices: Switches, Routers, Multilayer Switches, APs, Mobility Controllers, Firewalls, Servers (HTTP, DHCP, DNS, Telnet, FTP)
  • 2-Tier vs 3-Tier hierarchy
  • Switching Portfolio (AOS switches & AOS-CX switches) is this introducing both portfolio on a couple of slide and few slides on AOS-CX hardware architecture, software architecture and intro to NAE high level.
  • Introduction to AOS-CX and feature set
  • Port numbering
  • Accessing Aruba OS-CX CLI
  • Prompt modes/levels and navigation
  • Context sensitive help
  • Show logs, configuration, interfaces, transceivers, flash, version

  • Link Layer Discovery Protocol
  • ICMP and reachability testing tools: Ping and Traceroute
  • PoE (standards one slide and what we support and one or two slide on configuration and verifications.)
VLANs
  • Broadcast/collision domains
  • VLAN benefits
  • VLAN creation
  • DHCP server configuration in switches (optional)
