Course Outline : ECS – Extreme Access Control

Course Overview

Students will learn methods to properly configure and manage their Extreme Networks Access Control (EAC) solution using a combination of the network management software applications including: Extreme Management Center, Policy and Extreme Access Control. This knowledge will be reinforced through actual hands-on experience with networking equipment in a lab environment, where students will perform real world tasks configuring authentication mechanisms as well as creating different assessment methods and policies.
Due to the nature of this course, Extreme Networks recommends that students should have previous hands-on experience with Extreme Networks wired and wireless as well as having attended Switching and Routing courses prior to attending.
