Implementing Cisco® IP Switched Networks (SWITCH) Version 2.0 is a Cisco Training on Demand course. It helps you create an efficient and expandable enterprise network by installing, configuring, and verifying network infrastructure equipment according to the Cisco enterprise campus architecture. In this version, the course demonstrates several new IPv6 routing topics that have been added. The course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS® Software Release 15 and technically updated.
This course teaches many of the skills you need to build a strong toolset of knowledge around Layer 2 of the OSI model, how to implement the protocols and technologies of the Layer 2 Cisco network, and provides an extremely well-rounded knowledge base of the protocols and technologies that exist at Layer 2 and how to configure and verify them in a Cisco based network.
In addition, this course teaches the hierarchical campus structure and how to perform basic switch operations, configure technologies such as Power over Ethernet (PoE), VLAN, trunking, VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP), and implement Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Version 4 (DHCPv4) and v6, as well as port aggregation to group numerous physical switchboards together to make a logical bundle. The course also teaches how to implement and optimize many of the shielded twisted pair (STP) types, such as Per-VLAN Spanning Tree (PVST) Plus, Rapid PVST Plus, and Multiple Spanning Tree (MST).

The SWITCH Training on Demand course is a self-paced course based on the 5-day instructor-led training version. It consists of 27 sections of instructor video and text totaling more than 12 hours of instruction along with interactive activities, 33 hands-on lab exercises, content review questions, and challenge questions.
This course is designed for network engineers and technicians, support engineers, system engineers, network analysts, senior network administrators, and those preparing for the 300-115 SWITCH exam.
After completing this course, you should be able to:
- Describe the hierarchical campus structure, basic switch operation, use of shared document management (SDM) templates, PoE, and Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP)
- Implement VLANs, trunks, explain VTP, implement DHCP in IPv4 and IPv6 environments, and configure port aggregation
- Implement and optimize an STP mechanism that best suits your network: PVSTP +, RPVSTP +, or MSTP
- Configure routing on a multilayer switch
- Configure Network Timing Protocol (NTP), Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), IP SLA, and port mirroring, and verify StackWise and Volume Snapshot Service (VSS) operation
- Implement First-Hop Resiliency Protocol (FHRP) redundancy in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
- Secure campus network according to recommended practices
