Upon completion of this course, students will have gained the working knowledge to:

  • Understand Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching (EAPS) and configure advanced EAPS features in a multi-ring environment
  • Configure Multi-Switch Link Aggregation (MLAG)
  • Understand and configure Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)
  • Describe Access Control List (ACL) operation and configuration
  • Configure and implement CLEAR-Flow
  • Understand and configure RoleBased Access Control (RBAC) with Identity Management
  • Understand and configure OSPF in a multi-area environment
  • Describe IP multicast operation and configure IGMP and IGMP Snooping
  • Understand and configure Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) in both Dense and Sparse modes
  • Take the Extreme Networks Campus EXOS Routing & Switching exam

Who Can Benefit

This course is designed for individuals responsible for the configuration, management, maintenance, and support of the Extreme Networks family of switches.


Students should possess a solid grasp of LAN concepts, including advanced Ethernet and TCP/IP skills.

I prefer the course can pay more time to drill deeper in some underlying structure than to introduce the boring testing skills.

The Course material and lab infrastructure and the overall Experience is very good.

Good in providing online courses and rescheduling was followed up very well, but the earbuds promised were not sent.

The way the instructor explained the topics in provided module is excellent. Even though I have small knowledge in z/OS, I can understand easily the lessons.

Outstanding job on the facilitator of this course (Ruben) and great information taught throughout the duration!

Ruben did a fantastic job facilitating this course! The only downfall is trying to cram all this information into 2 days! Incredibly overwhelming...
