Description

Hello Prospective students and employees.

I have been doing and teaching networks since the start back in the 90's.  Realize this course is different than the normal course that prepares you for CCNA.  While those courses do a great job preparing you for entry level certifications.  This course prepares you for the real work world.  I show you what to focus on during your first couple years on the job.  I hire train and teach networking students and engineers for 20 years so I know what you need to know. Showing up with a CCNA isn't enough.  Make no mistake this is the important material to start.

Many students have no experience and spend months studying BGP to pass exams this is nonsense.  You won't touch BGP until you have had at least 5 years experience real networking experience and you will never get that chance if you don't master and demonstrate your mastery of the topics discussed here.  I have trained many students that go on to successful careers but its a step by step process from the bottom up.

This course reflects the Switch course that I teach at the City University of Seattle for a number of reasons. I want to focus on Lans, Vlans, Cisco Switch's, Ip addressing and Client PC configurations. Because these are the tasks and topics people will be doing at their first Network Engineering Position.  What I have seen from students graduating over the last few years is BGP even OSPF are great but it will be years before most people get to work on these Routing Protocols.  Master the topics and tasks in this course to move up at work to a position of greater trust, challenge and reward.

****NOTE***

I pulled material that I have developed for the CityU Switch course that I have taught over 10 semesters in the last few years.  However the course is brand new to Udemy.  I am still making some small additions updates and changes over the next few days to make this course the best it can be for Udemy and for the students current or future employeement, thank you for your patience.

****NOTE***

Thank You,

Andrew

This course is taught by a real University Professor that prepares his lectures and labs daily. This class room environment forces a Professor to really know his stuff, he must prepare for any question on the spot. Additionally a University Professor in the classroom, knows what kind of questions students ask, and can prepare his lectures and labs to address the points students have difficulty with. If you have been stuck on this material before this will get you over the Difficult spots and on your way to becoming and Cisco Switching expert. If this is your first intro to this material this is the place to start.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is intended to provide master level training for LAN's, VLAN's and switches. These are the most important skills used in a first position as a network Engineer.
  • This course is intended as a resource for any student preparing for the Cisco CCENT exam.

Operation of IP Data Networks
3 Lectures 25:30

This lecture provides an overview of the OSI Model.  It is important once you start troubleshooting networks because if you can isolate the problem to a specific layer it becomes much easier to solve the problem.

Also OSI model questions are always asked at interviews.

Please download and review the attached OSI model notes.

Protocols in the OSI and TCP/IP models

This lecture discusses encapsulation this provides more detail between the layers and is important for Troubleshooting networks and Interview Questions.

IP addressing (IPv4 )
9 Lectures 01:26:23

Its important to learn the binary to decimal conversions.  Because Humans use the Decimal numbers for IP Addresses but the computer uses the binary numbers.

Please download and review this excellent summary after watching the video.

Welcome to VLSM.

All modern networks use VLSM this concept carries over to IPV6.  It is easier t understand in IPV4 but easier to implement in IPV6.

Please watch the video and download and review the e-book chapter attached.

IPV6 is the addressing we will use now and in the future.  You may see IPV4 often and it is easier to learn IPV6 after learning IPV4 it is intended that you work through the IPV4 material first.

Please see the excellent IPV6 presentation attached.

Thank You

Static Routing.

Yes we touch on routing in this course because routeing is required for connectivity between VLANS and the goal of this course is to master VLANS.

Below are some excellent resources on VLANS.

GNS3 Setup
2 Lectures 14:27

After you download GNS3 you need to load an ISO image onto the router.

GNS3 can use switches by adding a switch module to the Router.  The only difference is the older commands to assign VLANS is used on the GNS3 Switch module. I preform congis in both GNS3 and on rela switch the concepts are the same the configs are slighlty different for the VLANS.  You are not required to purchase switches everything can be accomplished in the free GNS3 Cico Emulator.  But you can purchase Cisco switches on eBay if you like.

How to download and use GNS3

Once you add the IOS image to your router follow this video to add the switch module to the router.
