  • Define ACLs and identify the criteria by which ACLs select traffic
  • Configure ACLs on AOS-CX switches to select given traffic
  • Apply static ACLs to interfaces to meet the needs of a particular scenario
  • Examine an ACL configuration and determine the action taken on specific packets
  • Deploy AOS-Switches in single-area and multi-area OSPF systems
  • Use area definitions and summaries to create efficient and scalable multiple area designs
