Course Description

Hello Prospective students and employees.

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.

What are the requirements?

  • Student will need a laptop or computer with internet access to work along.
  • Not required as we use the free GNS3 however Students may want to buy some Cisco switches for under 30 dollars on ebay. Advise is provided.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Apply for and successfully perform in an entry level Networking position.
  • Succesfully prepare for the CCENT exam

What 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.

What you get with this course?

Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction
06:07

This lecture explains the similarities and differences between this Engineering Board Accredited course and Cisco Certification courses and why I present this course to you in this manner based on my industry experience over the last few years.

17:02

This lecture provides:

An overview of the course

Information on purchasing Cisco Switches if you like.

Information on GNS3 and wireshark.

Section 2: Operation of IP Data Networks
08:30

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.

07:28

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

09:32

This lecture discusses the 3 way hand shake,  Also another common source for interview questions.

Please download and review this excellent detailed paper on the 3-way handshake.

OSI Model
3 questions
Section 3: IP addressing (IPv4 )
11:07

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.

05:24

Another lecture and excellent resource for conversion between decimal and binary numbers.

06:01

Work through these IP addressing Examples please.

08:47

Work through these IP addressing Examples please.

12:22

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.

Thank you

Andrew

10:39

Continued VLSM please see previous section for downloadable resources.

Thank you

Andrew

05:44

Check your VLSM solutions with online VLSM calculators.  Use these tools to speed up your assignments at work.

14:00

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 

Andrew.

12:19

Please see the excellent IPV6 presentation attached.

Thank You 

Andrew.

Section 4: Project 1: Static Routes & IP Addressing
12:48

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.

Thank you

Andrew

Static Route
1 question
Project 1: Assignment
17:10
00:11

Please take a look at this document starting at page 22. This is the decimal method. This is what really brought sub-netting together for me. Read and work through these and you will soon be sub-netting anything quick in your head.

See below the project 1 solution .doc

Section 5: GNS3 Setup
07:03

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.

07:24

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

Section 6: LAN Switching Theory
11:35

Playing around with the switches and performing some simple initial configurations.

Vlans is what its all about, don't give up until you understand VLANS very well.  Attached is an excellent resource.

Section 7: GNS3 and WireShark Lab VLANS
09:29

See it in action lets use wire shark to look at the data.

08:02

See it in action lets use wire shark to look at the data.  You want to be very comfortable using wireshark it is a great troubleshooting tool.

05:07

More about wire shark

Section 8: Project 2 Sniffer Tools
13:17

This is a Project I used for a few semesters using wire shark to sniff the wire.  Please try to work through the problem before looking at the solution.

00:11

This is the solution to the sniffer lab.  Did you get it right?

Section 9: Project 3: LANS
13:17

You may want to work through these Example LAN and VLAN labs before attempting Project 3 & 4

Section 12: UPLOADING TOPICS AND LABS AND ORGANIZING THIS SECTION NOW
10:46

Description of MAC addresses and 802.1q

14:07

Content Being Added

It is important to understand the default states of DTP for correct operation and security of your switches.

11:42

VTP is a required evil in large networks you really need to understand VTP if you use it on your networks.  Unlike STP you can cause real damage if you use VTP incorrectly.

00:11

Cisco discovery Protocol is Cisco proprietary but supported by other Vendors as well.  It is a great way to determine what components are on a network in order to document and diagram an unknown network.  

CDP is also a great troubleshooting tool because it works at layer 2.  It can be used to isolate a problem to layer 2 or layer 3.

00:11

Content Being Added

Spanning tree protocol has many versions.  It is basically plug and play but you need to understand it well for troubleshooting as well as interviews this is a favorite interview topic.
