Overview/Description
Building redundant campus environments requires the use of protocols such as STP and HSRP. This course focuses on the need for STP in campus networks and how you can configure and verify an STP implementation. It will also describe the need for FHRPs in redundant environments along with the configuration and verification of HSRP. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Cisco exam Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 (200-105 ICND2). This exam counts toward the CCNA Routing and Switching certification.

Target Audience
Anyone who is looking to expand their knowledge and skills of routing and switching with Cisco IOS products and/or needs to prepare for the Cisco ICND2 v3.0 certification exam

Prerequisites
None

Expected Duration (hours)
