Accelerated Implementing HP A- & E-Series Secure Infrastructure Networks On-Site Training

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

Accelerated Implementing HP A- & E-Series Secure Infrastructure Networks

Course Description/Agenda

In this accelerated course, you will focus on securely implementing enterprise-level networks with HP A-Series or E-Series switches and routers. You will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to configure HP switches supporting network redundancy at Layer 2 and Layer 3, networks supporting IPv4 and IPv6 as well as OSPFv2 and OSPFv3, and IP multicast-supported network systems.

You will learn techniques for designing and implementing resilient switched and routed converged networks, and you will learn to configure, troubleshoot, and implement security features used for network protection.
