SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TrainSignal, the global leader in professional computer training, announced the release of their Cisco CCNP SWITCH Training course.

This CCNP video training course authored by Cisco expert Joe Rinehart offers complete instruction on the objectives for Cisco's CCNP SWITCH Exam 642-813. The course features lessons that contextualize Cisco switching concepts for the demands of today's IT industry while building off of solid, foundational theory. Main course highlights include:

  • Spanning Tree Protocol
  • VLAN Fundamentals
  • Interface and Port Configuration
  • Switch-Based Security Considerations
  • Layer 3 Switching Solutions

In networking, the spanning tree protocol (STP) functions to prevent bridge loops & resulting broadcast radiation in bridged Ethernet local area networks (LANs). This topic remains crucial for those studying for a CCNP exam, and students can expect to learn about troubleshooting, configuration and verification processes for rapid, multiple, per VLAN and rapid per VLAN STPs (RSTP, MSTP, PVST and RPVST).

The CCNP SWITCH Training also contains videos on port & interface types: how to configure them, and how to implement high availability for switching.

The course instructor is CCIE #14256 Joe Rinehart, a Cisco professional with over 14 years of experience in routing, switching, unified communications, security, and data center technologies. He is a specialized trainer having taught at colleges and in the corporate sector, and has worked for several Fortune 500 companies. He is also the author of TrainSignal's CCNP ROUTE and CCNA Wireless courses.

TrainSignal's Product Development Manager, Gosia Niklinski, on the focus of CCNP video training said, "We created this course to provide our customers with a topic that is very popular right now. Someone's ability to securely integrate VLANs, WLANs, voice, and video into campus networks truly validates their knowledge of Cisco's campus enterprise architecture."
