While much attention focuses on security attacks from outside the walls of an organization and at the upper OSI layers, campus access devices and Layer 2 communication are largely unconsidered in most security discussions. Only authorized devices and users should be able to access ports on your access layer switches. In this course you will learn about a more centralized security solution that is the AAA framework. Equipment malfunction and malicious attacks can bring down your network. You will also learn how storm control mechanisms, DHCP snooping, IP source guard, dynamic ARP inspection can aid in your efforts of having a secure and stable network. This course offers the official training for the Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks 2.0 certification exam which is a component exam for the CCNP and CCDP certifications. Passing this exam will also refresh CCNA certification, which expires after three years.

Target Audience
This course is intended for students who are looking for real-world switching knowledge, and those that are considering CCNP and CCDP certification. This course's discussion of switching could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates
