Introduction to Scaling Networks

Introduces strategies that can be used to systematically design a highly functional network, such as the hierarchical network design model, the Cisco Enterprise Architecture, and appropriate device selections.

LAN Redundancy

Outlines the protocols used to manage these forms of redundancy. It also covers some of the potential redundancy problems and their symptoms.

Link Aggregation

Describes EtherChannel and the methods used to create an EtherChannel. An EtherChannel can be manually configured or can be negotiated by using the Cisco-proprietary protocol Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) or the IEEE 802.3ad-defined protocol Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP).

Wireless LANs

WLAN technology, components, security, planning, implementation, and troubleshooting. The types of network attacks to which wireless networks are particularly susceptible are discussed.

Single Area OSPFv2 and OSPFv3

Describes these tuning features, the configuration mode commands to implement these features for both IPv4 and IPv6, and the components and commands used to troubleshoot OSPFv2 and OSPFv3.

Multiarea OSPF

Discussion is focused on the LSAs exchanged between areas. In addition, activities for configuring OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 are provided. The chapter concludes with the show commands used to verify OSPF configurations.


Introduces EIGRP and provides basic configuration commands to enable it on a Cisco IOS router. It also explores the operation of the routing protocol and provides more detail on how EIGRP determines best path.

Advanced EIGRP

This chapter discusses these additional tuning features and the configuration mode commands to implement these features for both IPv4 and IPv6.

IOS Imaging ad Licensing

This chapter discusses the process of obtaining, installing, and managing Cisco IOS 15 software licenses.
