Description

Cisco LAN Switching Configuration Handbook Second Edition A concise reference for implementing the most frequently used features of the Cisco Catalyst family of switches Steve McQuerry, CCIE (R) No. 6108David Jansen, CCIE No. 5952David Hucaby, CCIE No. 4594 Cisco LAN Switching Configuration Handbook, Second Edition, is a quick and portable reference guide to the most commonly used features that can be configured on Cisco (R) Catalyst (R) switches. Written to be used across all Catalyst IOS platforms, the book covers general use of Cisco IOS (R), followed by a series of chapters that provide design and configuration guidelines. Each chapter starts with common design overviews and then describes the configuration of management features. Coverage includes Layer 2, Layer 3, multicast, high availability, and traffic management configurations. This book is organized by groups of common features, with sections marked by shaded tabs for quick reference. Information on each feature is presented in a concise format, with background, configuration, and example components. The format is organized for easy accessibility to commands and their proper usage, saving you hours of research time. From the first page, the authors zero in on quick facts, configuration steps, and explanations of configuration options in each Cisco Catalyst switch feature. The quick reference format allows you to easily locate just the information you need without having to search through thousands of pages of documentation, helping you get your switches up and running quickly and smoothly. Whether you are looking for a handy, portable reference to more easily configure Cisco Catalyst switches in the field, or you are preparing for CCNA (R), CCNP (R), or CCIE (R) certification, you will find Cisco LAN Switching Configuration Handbook, Second Edition, to be an essential resource. Steve McQuerry, CCIE No. 6108, is a technical solutions architect with Cisco focused on data center solutions. Steve works with enterprise customers in the midwestern United States to help them plan their data center architectures. David Jansen, CCIE No. 5952, is a technical solutions architect (TSA) with Cisco focused on Data Center Architectures at Cisco. David has more than 20 years of experience in the IT industry. David Hucaby, CCIE No. 4594, is a lead network engineer for the University of Kentucky, where he works with healthcare networks based on the Cisco Catalyst, ASA/PIX/FWSM security, and VPN product lines. Implement switched campus network designs Configure switch prompts, IP addresses, passwords, switch modules, file management, and administrative protocols Understand how Layer 3 interfaces are used in a switch Configure Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, and EtherChannel interfaces Implement VLANs, trunking, and VTP Operate, configure, and tune Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) Handle multicast traffic and interact with multicast routers Streamline access to server and firewall farms with accelerated server load balancing Deploy broadcast suppression, user authentication, port security, and VLAN access lists Configure switch management features Implement QoS and high availability features Transport voice traffic with specialized voice gateway modules, inline power, and QoS features This book is part of the Networking Technology Series from Cisco Press (R), which offers networking professionals valuable information for constructing efficient networks, understanding new technologies, and building successful careers.show more
