Focus will be on general security concerns and the specific Extreme Networks methods for switch and traffic protection and control.

Intended Audience

This course is tailored for those individuals responsible for the design, configuration, management, support and use of the Extreme Networks family of LAN switches. It will benefit individuals who are familiar with general networking and with basic Extreme Networks knowledge and configuration skills, but who desire a comprehensive overview of Access Control Lists, Access Profiles, Radius, QoS and SLB as they are implemented by Extreme. This course will help students preparing for the ENS Certification.

Pre-requisite skills

Solid theoretical and practical understanding of switching and routing concepts, experience with LAN and VLAN concepts, including Ethernet, TCP/IP and OSPF protocol knowledge. These pre-requisite skills can be met by attending the recommended Extreme Introduction courses EDN-100/3 and EIP-100/2, followed by the Extreme Configuration and Troubleshooting course ECT-200/5. Students with the Extreme Networks Associate Certification meet these pre-requisites.
