STP – Spanning Tree Protocol Course

STP is an old technology but still should be well understood by all the network engineers, there are many networks out there in which STP is widely being used.

In order to troubleshoot any technology, you need to have detailed knowledge of it, how it exactly works and why it works that way.

In this course, we have tried to explain STP from scratch in detail and slowly going through the advanced topics.

The lab which is provided by this course is an all-in-one comprehensive lab that is designed on the EVE-NG and can be imported to your EVE-NG Community and Pro Editions.

It is designed based on the Real Enterprise Campus networks and covers all types of Access Layer Designs including L2 (Looped and Loop-Free) as well as L3. You will understand what exactly happens to the STP whenever you change the Access Layer design from one to another.

We have also included an MC-LAG (Cisco’s vPC in this case) to get you familiar with the NX-OS and also the Flow-Based Load Balancing.

The topics which will be covered in this course:

• What is STP and why do we need it
• The STP basics
• Configuring the STP on a Cisco Catalyst switch
• Tree structure and the Root Bridge/Switch
• Per VLAN STP and VLAN Based Load Balancing
• STP Timers and tuning them
• Direct Link Failure and UplinkFast
• Indirect Link Failure and BackboneFast
• PortFast for Access and Trunk ports (the considerations)
• BPDU Guard and BPDU Filter
• Root Guard and Loop Guard
• PVST+ BPDU Wireshark capture and analysis
• STP Root Bridge and FHRP Active Gateways and their interaction
• STP vs Rapid STP (All the differences)
• Rapid PVST configuration on a Cisco Catalyst switch
• Rapid PVST BPDU Capture and Analysis
• Comparing different L2 Access Designs (Looped/Loop-Free) and STP considerations
• Enterprise Core and Distribution layer analysis
• L3 Access Design and the STP
• MC-LAG (Multi-chassis Link Aggregation) and STP
• MST analysis and comparison with STP and RSTP
• MST and PVST Simulation

After I attended Orhan Ergun’s CCDE course I passed the CCDE practical exam.I really enjoyed the course a lot.Before I signed up I didn’t know what to expect but it’s for sure a great design course and preparation for the CCDE exam. Mainly because of the interaction with Orhan who is really an expert in explaining all the different technologies and making perfect designs out of them.

Orhan Ergun testimonial
I signed up for Orhan’s CCDE training. This training is very technically detailed and the use-cases, quizzes, scenarios, and mind maps are all great resources in the overall training program. Orhan teaches his students to think like a network designer by applying technology to meet business requirements and design specifications.

Orhan Ergun testimonial
Orhan is forcing you to take off the implementation hat that most of us have been wearing for many years, instead he is providing a new fancy design hat, which makes you see and deal with the issues presented. At the beginning of this CCDE course you many times are sitting thinking ‘I could solve this issue with some fancy trick/feature’, all because you keep thinking implementation. However as the course goes on Orhan is helping you to fill your new fancy design hat with all the important information not only for designing, meeting business requirements, but also dealing with the interaction of the protocols. If you’re trying to get your head into a new hat, chasing the CCDE exam, or just wants to get on top with network design, I would go to Orhan today.
