Course Ref : FOU0002
Course Price : £1600
Course Duration : 4 days

This course (Brocade code, CNE200) introduces the Brocade Ethernet Switch/Router family of products, the architecture, core features and benefits, and how they are utilized in the network. The class includes the basic configuration, operations and management of the L2/L3 Switches/Routers using the Command Line Interface (CLI) for the interfaces, VLANs and L2/L3 protocols. This course serves as the foundation for advancing in the understanding of networking technologies and features offered by the Brocade Ethernet family of products.
This course is designed in part, to prepare students for the Brocade Certified Network Engineer exam (BCNE; #150-120).

The course is designed for:

Network Engineers from customers and resellers who are new to the Brocade Networks' products.
Network Administrators responsible for implementing and managing small to large business networks.
Network support staff who will act as network device installers and first-line support for a local to global sized business environment.
Candidates preparing for the Brocade Certified Network Engineer (BCNE)

To fully benefit from this course you should posses a working knowledge of the listed technologies:

The Open System Interconnection (OSI) reference model
The difference between networks using IP and IPX protocols
The differences between and functions of layer 2 and layer 3 devices (switches and routers)
Spanning Tree Protocol
Inter-domain routing protocols (RIP, OSPF, static routes)
Exterior-domain routing protocols (BGP)

Special Requirement:
Delegates are required to provide 1 PC/Laptop for use on the class. Each PC needs to have either Windows NT or 2000 installed; they require a Network Interface Card (NIC), a serial port and a CD ROM. If this causes any issues, please notify Q6 immediately and we'll work together on a solution.
