Getting Started with HP Switching and Routing (HL044S)

Overview

The Getting Started with HP Switching and Routing Instructor Led training (ILT) helps network technicians understand the foundational network technologies they need to know before attending the HP A-Series Networking Technologies (ILT) and HP E-Series Networking Technologies (ILT) courses. Specifically, the training covers basic switch functionality, virtual LANs (VLANs), infrastructure device security, IP routing concepts, link aggregation, and network redundancy.

This course also provides an overview of HP A-Series switches, which are designed for data centers and enterprises, and E-Series switches, which are designed for small-to-medium businesses (SMBs). In addition, the training describes how each foundational technology implemented on both A-Series and E-Series switches. This course prepares new candidates and candidates who hold an older HP ProCurve AIS or a 3rd party network vendor certification of equal level for the Accredited Integration Specialist (AIS) 2011 certification within the HP ExpertONE program.

This course is equivalent to the Learning Center 00339380 Getting Started with HP Switching and Routing course from the ExpertOne program.
