4 Day(s)

After completing this course, you should be able to do the following:

  • Understand the components of the HP FlexFabric network architecture.
  • Describe common datacenter networking requirements.
  • Understand, describe and configure Multitenant Device Context (MDC) that is a technology that can partition a physical device or an IRF fabric into multiple logical switches called "MDCs."
  • Understand, describe and configure Multi-CE (MCE) which enables a switch to f unction as a Customer Edge (CE) device of multiple VPN instances in a BGP/MPLS VPN network, thus reducing network equipment investment.
  • Understand, describe and configure MPLS L2VPN technologies which provide point-to-point connections through Martini, Kompella, CCC, SVC.
  • Understand, describe and configure Virtual private LAN service (VPLS), also called transparent LAN service (TLS) or virtual private switched network service, can deliver a point to-multipoint L2VPN service over public networks.
  • Understand, describe and configure the Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) protocol. TRILL provides large-scale Layer 2 fabric services to maintain the simplicity of traditional Layer 2 systems while adding the scalability and convergence of a Layer 3 routed network.
  • Understand, describe and configure Shortest Path Bridging Mac-in-Mac Mod (SPBM) that provides Layer 2 connectivity between data center sites.
  • Understand, describe and configure Datacenter Bridging (DCB) that is a technology that enables the consolidation of IP-based LAN traffic and block-based storage traffic onto a single converged Ethernet network. This can help to eliminate the need to build separate infrastructures for LAN systems that carry typical end-user data traffic, and SAN systems that carry storage specific communications.
  • Understand, describe and configure the Ethernet Virtual Interconnect (EVI) protocol that extends Layer-2 networks across data centers via already available L3 routes instead of dark fibre.
  • Understand, describe and configure Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
    • Understand and configure Storage Area Networking (SAN) Zoning
    • Describe and configure NPV mode
    • Configure a 5900CP for native FC connectivity
  • Describe requirements for a datacenter network design
  • Describe different datacenter deployment models
  • Understand various data center technologies and their impact on a design
  • Describe the options for data center layers
  • Understand, describe and configure Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) that provides connection-oriented label switching over connectionless IP backbone networks.
    • Describe the behavior of a Label Switching Router (LSR)
    • Describe a Label Switched Path (LSP)
    • Describe a Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC)

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
