Course outline

  • Module 1: Device Configuration and Monitoring demonstrates initial configuration procedures for ProCurve switches. After performing the associated lab activities, students will be able to perform basic configuration and monitoring. The second part of this module covers the ProCurve Product Overview which describes the ProCurve Adaptive EDGE Architecture TM and introduces the ProCurve product line
  • Module 2: Configuring VLANs describes the steps necessary to plan and configure VLANs on HP ProCurve switches. It includes configuring multiple VLAN per device and their layer 2 & 3 characteristics. Topics such as directly connect routes and DHCP helper addresses are also addressed
  • Module 3: HP ProCurve Manager and HP ProCurve Manager Plus describes how these tools simplify management of a ProCurve network. Topics include installation, configuration, device discovery and performing network monitoring and maintenance using ProCurve Manager Plus
  • Module 4: Increasing Capacity and Improving Availability describes ProCurve support for link aggregation, Rapid Spanning Tree and Multiple Spanning Tree, and HP Switch Meshing
  • Module 5: Introduction to Wide Area Network Configuration provides students with a basic overview of wide area networking technologies including a hands-on lab installing and configuring ProCurve Secure WAN Routers. IP Static routing is also covered demonstrating how to interconnect networks using directly connected, static and default routes
  • Module 6: Introduction to Dynamic Routing & 10Gb Ethernet provides the students with a basic understanding of how to dynamically distribute routes across a network using the RIP protocol. 10Gb Ethernet is also discussed to highlight the technology and the variety of mediums it supports as well as showing implementation examples
  • Module 7: Enabling Convergence discusses technologies implemented by ProCurve Networking network products to enable traffic prioritization for converged data, voice and video networks. A hands-on lab provides students the opportunity to configure these technologies on their classroom network. Other topics in this module include 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) and guaranteed minimum bandwidth settings
  • Module 8: Introduction to Wireless Access and Access Control Configuration describes the ProCurve mobility infrastructure solution including basic access point installation and configuration and access control with the Secure Access 700wl series
