Topics covered include but are not limited to implementation of virtual local area networks (VLANs), configuration and troubleshooting of inter-VLAN routing, configuration of dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) on networking devices utilizing IPv4 and IPv6, and the purpose and evolution of spanning tree protocol (STP). An introduction etherchannel is also included. Students will learn about wireless LAN concepts and configurations as well as routing protocols. A grade of C or higher must be achieved to continue to the next Cisco C3 Course.
