Welcome, everybody to the CCNP, switch 300 dash 115 course. All right, get ready to get your mind blow. No, it's not as hard as you think. It's not as hard as you think. As long as you take in a section and lecture at a time and just listen to me and do the labs that are there. You have the concepts, you have the labs, put them together, you will be just fine.

Okay, but before we get into this laundry list, All right, let me just I want to say something to you guys. Read the course description is going to tell you what this course is about. Okay. It's going to tell you that hey, the simulator, I do not send that out. I can't. It's not up to me.

All right, you guys need to go to the Cisco Networking Academy. If you want to go ahead and download the packet tracer latest and greatest, or you can go GNS three or you can use boss Or you can use verbal what viral I call it, bro, what I've all using real equipment. One thing I want to reiterate or drill on is the iOS that you're using for whatever it is that you're using. Make sure that what we're going to go over and I'll point it out that all the features are there. So you can go ahead and do it. If not, you're not gonna be able to do it.

But again, I'll have the labs, just take a look at the labs, you'll have the resources. Also, also, this course is full of free previews before you purchased a course. Look at the free previews. See how I teach. See if you like it, maybe you don't like the ball head? I don't know.

But see the information that I'm giving you. All right. So if you do now you go ahead and purchase the course. But believe me, you're gonna learn a lot from me. That's that. Let's take a look at what we're going to talk about.

Enterprise campus network design, of course. Everything you need is an enterprise network to two people in a company, you got to design your network, you know, you got to know where are you going to put your routers? Where are you going to put your switches? How am I gonna roll my cables, they'll fail over all these different things you need to think about. Because scalability, you may start with two people and you make, who knows, maybe you're that good. And six months down the road, you have 2000 people working for you.

Alright, so you need to have scalability. All right, we'll talk about layer two and layer three switch operations. Yes, there is layer three switches that we'll be using and configuring here as well. VLANs and trying to say, Well, what are the VLANs in CCNA, but we'll get a little bit more deeper into the VLANs and the trunking protocol. All right, and see exactly what happens and what needs to be trunk or not. BGP is back, even though we've been doing VTP those of you taking my CCNA course.

All my courses I've always done VTP BGP is vital, okay, for maintaining naming conventions and stuff. securing your network. There's different versions of VTP. Oh, a little bit deeper into the versioning of everything. All right. So we'll go over VTP spanning tree, one of the things that we're going to do is create two root bridges, our primary and a secondary.

Never did that before. All right. But the reason being is what happens is the primary root bridge goes down. Well, they have a secondary takeover. So we'll learn how to do that. All right, ether channel.

That's what it means by aggregating links. Okay, we're going to do ether channel, but we're going to explain exactly what happens. And what happens if all these cables that you aggregated just go down. Right there it was, it went down completely. No, that's why they talk about a failover system that we can use. So if CERN go CERN switch goes down.

They can still have another switch to go through. multi layer switching through layer three, configuring DHCP, right IP version four and IP version six. No biggie. logging on switch activities syslog we know syslog managing switches using SNMP. We'll be talking about the three versions of SNMP. Yes, a little bit more detail than we did before.

SNMP version one, no one uses but we're gonna talk about anyway. SNMP version two c, that's the most popular one, but still has security issues. SNMP version three. Oh, that's the one we want to use. That's the one you chose. It's corruption, authentication levels, all sorts of stuff.

So we'll be talking about those redundancy protocols. We've talked about h SRP Cisco's baby, everybody knows HRP. Well, here it is, again. You better know the breakdown on that MAC address. You better know the breakdown that MAC address. But we're also going to go over VRP and the true low balancing protocol, GL BP.

Okay. And then finally, security switch also switch port security. Right. And we're We'll be doing a radius AAA authentication using dot one x or 8021 x protocol. So that's one of the features that your iOS and your switches need to have, okay? need to have, they can go ahead and do that.

All right. And then we'll be using span as well. All right, scoring, control, all these different things you see here using port mirroring with spam, spam, most spam, all these features, we need to make sure that we have and even though I'm giving you a laundry list of Southern we're gonna go over it's not as bad as you think. But you need to have the features available in your iOS. I don't care what you use. I don't care.

You need to have that feature available for you to configure what you need to configure, but no set. This is what we're going to go over. We're going to drill down. We're going to have concepts, we have resources and we have labs. So all this put together, let's get certified. See you there.
