ICND2 2.0: VLANs and Spanning-Tree
This course starts with a review of VLAN and trunk technology. Understanding how VLANs and trunks operate and which protocols are associated with them is important for configuring, verifying, and troubleshooting VLANs and trunks on Cisco access switches. This course also addresses some of the common reasons that port connectivity, VLAN configuration, and trunk establishment can fail. It describes what information to look for to identify the source of the problem and determine how to solve it. Switched networks introduce redundancy, so an STP loop-avoidance mechanism is needed to prevent undesirable loops.
