Implementing HP E-Series Networks, Rev. 10.41

Workshop Description/Agenda

In this course, you will learn techniques for designing and implementing resilient switched and routed converged networks based on the HP E-Series ProVision ASIC switches and capable of fulfilling the "triple play" requirement of supporting voice, video, and data transmissions on a unified infrastructure.

You will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to configure HP E-Series switches supporting network redundancy at Layer 2 and Layer 3, networks supporting IPv4 and IPv6 as well as OSPFv2 and OSPFv3, and IP multicast supported network systems.

Hands-on labs configuring E-Series ProVision ASIC switches will reinforce concepts presented.
