Converged Campus: ERS Solution Installation and Configuration On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Converged Campus: ERS Solution Installation and Configuration

Course Description/Agenda

The Converged Campus solution combines a highly available network infrastructure with proven, feature-rich business telephony and applications.

In this course, you will explore the installation process for Ethernet Routing Switches including licensing and PoE configurations. You will examine the processes involved in the implementation of Avaya's small, medium, and large converged campus solutions.

Hands-in labs allow you to configure the ERS 8600 to serve as the network core and ERS 5500s to serve on the network edge. Labs use a combination of the ERS 8600 CLI, ACLI on the ERS 5500, and Enterprise Device Manager.

You'll examine these Ethernet switching platforms:

  • Ethernet Routing Switch 8800
  • Ethernet Routing Switch 8600
  • Ethernet Routing Switch 8300
  • Ethernet Routing Switch 5000
  • Ethernet Routing Switch 4500
  • Ethernet Routing Switch 2500

You will consider Ethernet switching hardware:

  • Resiliency (chassis/stackable)
  • Power considerations (redundancy, 802.3af Power over Ethernet, Avaya Energy Saver)

You will examine these Ethernet switching technologies

  • Link detection/protection (RFI, FEFI, LACP, VLACP)
  • Layer 2 and Layer 3 security (SNMPv3, SSH, DoS protection, threat protection)
  • Layer 3 routing (OSPF, RIP, BGP, PIM-SM)
  • Quality of Service (QoS)

The virtual classroom course design allows you take online training in real time, collaborating with a live instructor and other students, using your home or office computer.


This course helps prepare you for the Avaya Certified Support Specialist (ACSS) - Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch Exam 3600.1.

What You'll Learn

  • The architecture of the Converged Campus Ethernet Routing Switch Solutions
  • Installation process for the ERS 8800, ERS 8600, and ERS 8300
  • Installation process for the ERS 5000, 4500, 2500, and 1600
  • Software features of the ERS family of products
  • How Split Multi-Link Trunking (SMLT) operates in the network, the advantages of SMLT, and design considerations for SMLT
  • Processes needed to configure the basic core and basic edge of the converged network
  • Layer 3 redundancy choices on the ERS, including VRRP and Routed Split Multi-Link Trunking (RSMLT), and the design recommendations.
  • Processes needed to configure the additional core features of the converged network
  • Processes needed to configure the additional edge converged network
