Course Outline : ECS – Campus EXOS Switching AND Routing

Course Overview

Students will learn methods to properly configure, deploy, manage and troubleshoot their Extreme Networks switching and routing environments using the Extreme Networks operating systems ExtremeXOS CLI. This knowledge will be reinforced through actual hands-on experience with networking equipment in a lab environment, where students will perform real world tasks.
Students should possess a solid grasp of LAN concepts, including advanced Ethernet and TCP/IP skills
