Course Overview

Students will learn methods to properly configure, deploy, manage and troubleshoot their Extreme Networks switching and routing environments using the Extreme Networks operating systems ExtremeXOS CLI. This knowledge will be reinforced through actual hands-on experience with networking equipment in a lab environment, where students will perform real world tasks.

Target Audience

This course is designed for individuals responsible for the configuration, management, maintenance, and support of the Extreme Networks family of LAN switches.

Course Prerequisites

Students should possess a solid grasp of LAN concepts, including advanced Ethernet and TCP/IP skills. Attendance of the ExtremeXOS Fundamentals course is recommended.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, students will have gained the working knowledge to complete the following actions: Understand Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching (EAPS) and configure advanced EAPS features in a multi-ring environment, understand and configure G.8032 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) in a single-ring environment, describe Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) and configure ERPS with CFM, configure Multi-Switch Link Aggregation (MLAG), understand and configure Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), describe Access Control List (ACL) operation and configuration, configure and implement CLEAR-Flow, understand and configure Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) with Identity Management, understand and configure OSPF in a multi-area environment, describe IP multicast operation and configure IGMP and IGMP Snooping, understand and configure Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) in both Dense and Sparse modes.
