In the first half of class, you will review switching concepts and operations, virtual LANs (VLANs), the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), port and device security features, and high availability (HA) features. In the last half, you will cover protocol-independent routing features, load balancing and filter-based forwarding, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), and IP tunneling. Your Boot Camp package includes a free JN0-343 exam voucher
