Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks

Request info

Course duration: 5 Days


Building Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN) course is recommended training for individuals seeking certification as a Cisco Certified Network Professional. This 5-day course will enable learners to implement appropriate technologies to build scalable multilayer switched networks; build switched networks using multilayer switching technologies; create and deploy a global intranet, and implement basic troubleshooting techniques in environments that use Cisco multilayer switches for client hosts and services. BCMSN course will also enable learners to improve traffic flow, reliability, redundancy, and performance for LAN switching that are self- supported or transported via service provider. The purpose of this course is to achieve a mid-career professional level competency.


To fully benefit from BCMSN, students must have the following prerequisite skills and knowledge:
 Basic router configuration
 Basic switch configuration
 Basic VLAN configuration
 Spanning Tree Protocol configuration
 Inter-Switch Link configuration
 Standard access list configuration

Note: These topics are covered in the Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices (ICND) course. A student enrolled in the Cisco Career Certification program must be a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) prior to taking this course. Students not seeking certification still must complete the prerequisite courses before enrolling in this course.
