Course Overview

Top

This is a five-day course designed to help students prepare to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions for campus environments using the Cisco Enterprise Campus Architecture. Labs are an important feature of this course with 2 different types of labs being used to aid learning, discovery labs are instructor guided labs through which students explore new topics in an interactive way, the challenge Labs are designed to test students understanding of the topics being taught and to provide vital hands-on practice.
