Dell EMC PowerSwitch Campus - Implementation and Administration

( Duration: 5 Days )

This Dell EMC PowerSwitch Campus: Implementation and Administration training course is designed to instruct the learner on various topics related to the theory, configuration, and troubleshooting of layer 2 and layer 3 protocols typically found in a Campus networking environment.

By attending Dell EMC PowerSwitch Campus: Implementation and Administration workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Describe the Dell EMC Campus Portfolio
  • Describe networking technologies and data flows found in the campus environment
  • Perform basic switch setup tasks
  • Describe the basic operation of VOIP and identify the configuration requirements to support VOIP devices
  • Identify the N-Series pre-defined VOIP policy and manipulate Voice VLAN to achieve desired quality of service for voice traffic
  • Describe the basic operation DHCP and DHCP Relay. Configure DHCP using a N-Series switch and identify the options to secure DHCP from attacks.
  • Describe the basic operation of VRRP and identify the components of VRRP
  • Configure and Validate VRRP configurations
  • Configure IPv4 on an interface
  • Demonstrate familiarity with IP subnetting and configure static routes. Compare static routing with dynamic routing.
  • Troubleshoot a problem using ARP table and Traceroute commands
  • Describe the basic operation of policy based routing. Configure and Validate PBR configurations
  • Identify PBR use cases
  • Describe the concepts relating to IP Multicast technology and identify the steps required to configure multicasting
  • Compare IGMP and PIM use cases
  • Define IPv6 address types, EUI64 and ipv6 auto configuration
  • Describe stacking and its benefits
  • Describe the topology options (cascade vs ring), Roles (Master, Standby, Member) and hardware used for connectivity between chassis.
