ERS 8000 Advanced Configuration and Maintenance

Gain hands-on experience building and troubleshooting a resilient switch cluster.

GK# 0211 Vendor# 5D00018V

Course Overview


In this course, you will take an in-depth look at the Ethernet Routing Switch (ERS) 8000, focusing on the advanced features maintenance and troubleshooting. You will gain hands-on experience building and troubleshooting a resilient switch cluster with the ERS 8000, observing the traffic flow and predictable failure recovery. You will also configure quality of service (QoS) and IP filters on the ERS 8000 R-modules.

Throughout this course you will perform configuration analysis and troubleshoot Layers 1, 2, 3, and 4 utilizing the ERS 8000's maintenance capabilities, including PCAP ping snoop. An IP VPN-Lite network is configured, as is Avaya VENA Enterprise Fabric SPB L2 and L3 VSNs.

You will cover some of the most advanced features of the ERS, including: SPB, VRF-lite, MPLS, IP VPN-lite, RS modules, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and advanced QoS.
