Course description

This course prepares you to implement HP A-Series products into network solutions based on HP Flex Network architecture. It describes design and implementation techniques for resilient switched and routed converged networks based on the HP A-Series switches. This course provides you with the ability to configure HP A-Series switches supporting network redundancy at Layer 2 and Layer 3, networks supporting IPv4 and IPv6 as well as OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 and IP multicast routing supported network systems. Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) are also covered.
This course will exist of about 60% hands on labs and 40% lecture and learning enhancing activities.

Who should attend

Professionals who design, implement, and support enterprise level network solutions based on HP A-Series switches and technologies, including systems engineers, systems designers, customer IT staff, HP services field and call center support engineers.
