4-5 Day(s)


Deploying HP FlexNetwork Core Technologies provides you with a comprehensive set of networking skills which will increase your capability to simplify the journey to a unified campus network. Upon course completion, you will be able to successfully implement and troubleshoot enterprise-level HP FlexNetwork solutions. Comprehensive labs are included, and learners will have hands-on experience with Comware and ProVision switches, including configuring HP switches supporting Layer 2 and Layer 3 network redundancy , dynamic routing with OSPF and BGP, network optimization via QoS, and IP multicast routing supported network systems. Additionally, you will extend your knowledge of Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) and how switch virtualization technology simplifies network design and operation. HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC), which allows network engineers and technicians to quickly and easily configure Quality of Service (QoS) and end-user authentication technologies, is featured throughout the course. This course is approximately fifty percent lecture and learning activities and fifty percent lab activities. The Deploying HP FlexNetwork Core Technologies course prepares candidates for the HP Accredited Solutions Expert (ASE) - FlexNetwork Integrator V1 certification within the HP ExpertOne program. What is new? Deploying HP FlexNetwork Core Technologies is a new course that combines the best of two courses, HP Core/Distribution Network Technologies using Comware Software, Rev. 11.41 and HP Core/Distribution Network Technologies using ProVision Software, Rev. 10.41. The new course brings together both switch families in a single, comprehensive training. HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) network management software is the tool connecting it all together that delivers integrated, modular management capabilities across fault, configuration, accounting, performance, and security needs. Additionally the Deploying HP FlexNetwork Core Technologies course includes security related features and technologies such as Access Control Lists (ACLs) and port authentication.


  • IT Professionals who deploy enterprise/core solutions based on HP products and technologies, including HP Reseller Systems Engineers, Customer IT Staff, HP System Engineers, and HP Services Field and Call Center Support Engineers.


  • HP ATP - FlexNetwork Solutions V2 certification or HP AIS - Network Infrastructure [2011] is required in order to obtain the HP ASE - Network Integrator V1 certification. The course supporting the HP ATP- FlexNetwork Solutions V2 certification is 00870186 - HP FlexNetwork Fundamentals, Rev. 14.21.

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.
