TE 271 - Routing and Switching II

Credit Hours: 3

This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a larger and more complex network. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, STP, and VTP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network.

Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

  • configure and troubleshoot DHCP and DNS operations for IPv4 and IPv6;
  • understand and describe the operations and benefits of the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP);
  • configure and troubleshoot STP operations;
  • understand and describe the operations and benefits of link aggregation and Cisco VLAN Trunk Protocol (VTP);
  • configure and troubleshoot VTP, STP, and RSTP;
  • configure and troubleshoot basic operations of routers in a complex routed network for IPv4 and IPv6;
  • configure and troubleshoot Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol (single-area OSPF and multi-area OSPF);
  • configure and troubleshoot Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP);
  • configure and troubleshoot advanced operations of routers and implement RIP, OSPF, and EIGRP routing protocols for IPv4 and IPv6; and
  • manage Cisco IOS® Software licensing and configuration files.
