  • Ethernet over MPLS Implementation

MLS Optimization and Security
This course focuses on two areas: capturing traffic to optimize a network and switch security features. The first half of this course is dedicated to the SPAN feature of Catalyst switches. The second half covers some of the security features included with

  • Using the Switched Port Analyzer Locally
  • Using the Switched Port Analyzer Remotely
  • Network Analysis Module Configuration
  • Securing Your Network Switch
  • Authentication, Authorization and Accounting
