The video download Integrating an HP and Cisco Network Including HP Networking Management Fundamentals from Class on Demand is a 10-hour training course by instructor John Lancaster, a recognized guru on the topic of Cisco and HP interoperability. This course is designed to prepare both HP Networking and Cisco network engineers for the design, integration, configuration, management, and interoperability of an interconnected HP and Cisco network.

Throughout the course, the emphasis is particularly on the understanding and implementation of both industry-standard and Cisco-proprietary protocols. To better demonstrate and clarify these and other concepts, focus is on the HP ProCurve product line, including the HP8200 zl, HP5400 zl, and HP3500 yl L3/L4 switches and the HP2900, HP2800, HP2600 access layer switches. Given the strong similarities between the CLI of Cisco's IOS OS and HP's A-series switches (acquired 3Com/H3C products), the demonstrated Cisco configuration can be readily applied to these HP products as well.

Additionally, this training course provides a foundation for students planning to take HP Networking Accredited Systems Engineer (ASE) courses and required follow-up certification exams. From the fundamentals of the topic to the most detailed explanations, the student will be able to learn from the convenience of their desk. Every aspect of this training is designed to deliver a clear and concise explanation of the subject using custom animated graphics, high-quality screen captures, and HD camera video production.

You will be able to integrate, configure, and support secure HP and Cisco network switches, which are deployed in an interconnected network environment. You also will gain a working knowledge of HP / Cisco Interoperability using VLANs, Link Aggregation, Spanning Tree, Rapid-PVST+, and MSTP. In addition, this course teaches you basic HP switch management and configuration including, securing and troubleshooting HP switches.

Note: This course requires some basic knowledge of LAN switching technology.
