ERS 8800/8600/8300 Advanced Configuration and Maintenance

Course Description/Agenda

This course provides an in-depth look at the ERS 8800, ERS 8600, and ERS 8300 products, focusing on the advanced features, maintenance, and troubleshooting. You will gain hands-in experience building and troubleshooting a Resilient Switch Cluster with ERS 8600 and ERS 8300, observing the traffic flow and predicable failure recovery. You will also configure Quality of Service (QoS) and IP filters on the ERS 8600 R-modules and ERS 8300 switches.

Throughout the course, you will perform configuration analysis and troubleshoot Layers 1, 2, 3, and 4, utilizing the ERS 8600 maintenance capabilities including PCAP Ping-Snoop. An IP Multicast network is implemented using PIM-SM.

You will examine the most advanced features of the ERS: VRF-lite, MPLS and IP VPN-lite, RS modules, 10 Gig Ethernet, and advanced QoS.


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