CCNP Self-Study: Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN), Third Edition, is a Cisco® authorized, self-paced learning tool for CCNP® switching foundation learning. This book provides you with the knowledge needed to build scalable multilayer switched networks, to create and deploy a global intranet, and to implement basic troubleshooting techniques in environments that use Cisco multilayer switches for client hosts and services. By reading this book, you will learn how to improve traffic flow, reliability, redundancy, performance, and security for Layer 2 and Layer 3 switched networks.
This comprehensive book provides detailed information and easy-to-grasp tutorials on design, configuration, operation, and troubleshooting of modern multilayer switched networks. This book introduces Cisco Catalyst® switching architectures, including Cisco Express Fowarding, ternary content addressable memory (TCAM), and the Cisco 6500, 4500, 3750, 3550, and 2950 series of switches. The book places an emphasis on configuring Cisco Catalyst switches with Cisco IOS® Software, with many chapters covering both Cisco IOS and Cisco CatOS. You will also learn about emerging technologies such as multicasting, security, IP telephony, storage area networking, and quality of service (QoS) as additions to the campus network design. The book concludes with a discussion of troubleshooting methodologies and tools. Each chapter opens with a list of objectives to help focus your study. Lab exercises are offered throughout to help illuminate theoretical concepts. Each chapter concludes with a summary of key concepts as well as review questions to reinforce your understanding.
This revision to the popular second edition is fully updated to include designs using new Catalyst products, references to the Catalyst 6500 Sup720, security updates throughout the entire book as well as added coverage of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) snooping, Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) inspection, ARP throttling, revised metro coverage, and new discussions on voice virtual LANs (VLAN) and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP).
CCNP Self-Study: Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN), Third Edition, is part of a recommended learning path from Cisco Systems® that includes simulatio
