Suggested prerequisites

After you successfully complete this course, expect to be able to:

  • Use NetEdit to manage switch configurations
  • Use the Network Analytics Engine (NAE) to implement scripting solutions to provide for proactive network management and monitoring
  • Compare and contrast VSX, VSF, and backplane stacking
  • Explain how VSX handles a split-brain scenario
  • Implement and manage a VSX fabric
  • 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
  • Advertise routes to external networks in a variety of OSPF environments
  • Promote fast, effective convergence during a variety of failover situations
  • Use virtual links as required to establish non-direct connections to the backbone
  • Implement OSFP authentication
  • Establish and monitor BGP sessions between your routers and ISP routers
  • Advertise an IP block to multiple ISP routers
