Building Cisco Multilayer Switching Networks v3.0

Course Details:

  • Days: 5
  • Course Code: CIBCMSN
  • Booking: Please ring 08450 504 505


Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN) v2.1 is recommended training for individuals seeking certification as Cisco CCNP. This course enables learners to use appropriate technologies to build scalable multilayer switched networks, to create and deploy a global intranet, and to implement basic troubleshooting techniques in environments that use Cisco multilayer switches for client hosts and services. This course also enables learners to improve traffic flow, reliability, redundancy, and performance for LAN switching that is self-supported or transported via a service provider. The purpose of this course is to enable a learner to achieve a mid-career professional-level competency


The delegate should be familiar with internetworking fundamentals prior to taking this course, have hands-on experience with basic router and switch configuration tasks, and be able to configure a simple VLAN,delegates should have the following skills, basic router configuration, basic switch configuration, basic VLAN configuration, spanning tree protocol configuration.

Prerequisite topics include

Delegates will learn how to


Module 1: Course Introduction

Module 2: Configuring VLANs and VTP

Module 3: Implementing Spanning-Tree Protocol

Module 4: Enhancing Spanning Tree Protocol

Module 5: Implementing Multilayer Switching in the Network

Module 6: Improving Availability on Multilayer Switched Networks

Module 7: Examining Cisco AVVID Services and Applications

Module 8: Implementing QoS in Multilayer Switched Networks

Module 9: Optimizing and Securing Multilayer Switched Networks

Module 10: Understanding Metro Ethernet

  • Deploy the required Cisco products and services that enable connectivity and traffic transport, given a network design that includes multilayer switching over various Ethernet technologies
  • Implement the necessary services at each layer of the network to all users to obtain services in a working multilayer switched network
  • Control network traffic by implementing network policies, given, a working multilayer switched network
  • Restore proper network operations through the use of Cisco devices and external management tools, when presented with an incorrectly working multilayer switched network
  • Explain how service providers implement transparent LAN services and Ethernet over Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology to deliver connectivity to the enterprise site
  • Basic router configuration
  • Basic switch configuration
  • Basic virtual local area network (VLAN) configuration
  • Basic Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) configuration
  • Basic trunking configuration
  • Standard access list configuration
  • Standard access list configuration

Note: The prerequisite topics are covered in the Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices (ICND) v2.1 course. It is recommended that a student achieve Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) prior to taking this course.
