CNT 240 Scaling Cisco Networks*

An investigation into the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a large, complex network. Students configure routers and switches for advanced functionality, and troubleshoot and resolve common problems—in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks—with Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), extended Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN), Dynamic Trunking Protocol (DTP), and VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP). Students develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement the following: Switched Virtual Interface (SVI), Inter-VLAN Routing, Hot Swappable Router Protocol (HSRP), LAN security, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and Domain Name System (DNS) operations in a network. They also examine the benefits of switch stacking in a small to medium-sized network. This is the third in a series of four courses in the Cisco Networking Technology (CNT) curriculum.
