Deploying HP FlexCampus Technologies for ProVision Based Devices (H8D08)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

This course introduces network professionals to the basic features of modern networks such as VLANs, redundancy technologies such as MSTP, Backplane Stacking, link aggregation technologies like LACP, static IP routing, and dynamic routing with OSPF, ACL’s, Multicast, and an introduction to BGP. Course Description

This course covers basic and advanced topics within the HP FlexCampus Architecture. The learner will experience both theory and hands on experience utilizing real hardware through lab exercises over four days. The learner will configure and monitor Comware devices using open standard technologies. You will work with layer 2 technologies, such as Multiple Instance Spanning Tree (MSTP) and Link-Aggregation (Trunks). You will also learn about Backplane Stacking. Layer 3 technologies, such as static routes, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) with Multi-Area implementations, and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), along with multicast solutions leveraging Protocol independent Multicast (PIM) both dense and spare modes.

Benefits to you

This course will enhance your knowledge and skills in several areas of networking. You will gain proficiency in using the Provision CLI, including the application of device access security, updating software, and managing the Provision file system. As a learner you will have sole control of set of equipment that includes Provision switches, as well as a server and client.

Who should attend

IT professionals who will deploy and manage networks based on HP ProVision products


Students should possess experience with networking and common LAN protocols
