  • FortiSwitch
    3 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Network Security

    Course Details

    In this three days course, you will learn about FortiSwitch when managed by FortiGate using FortiLink. You will also learn about the most common FortiSwitch stack topologies, including those that leverage multichassis link aggregation group (MCLAG) for redundancy and higher performance.

    You will also learn about FortiSwitch in standalone mode, its unique features, and how to manage a standalone switch directly or from FortiSwitch Cloud.

    This course also covers the deployment and troubleshooting of Layer 2 and Layer 3 features available on FortiSwitch.

    In interactive labs, you will explore the administrative tasks necessary to deploy, provision, and manage FortiSwitch. You will also explore advanced deployment topologies, such as FortiGate full mesh high availability (HA) with MCLAG, to showcase the full potential of FortiSwitch.

    Product Versions:

    • FortiGate 6.4.6
    • FortiSwitch 6.4.6
    • FortiAnalyzer 6.4.5
    • FortiManager 6.4.5
    • FortiAuthenticator 6.1.1

    Objectives

    After completing this course, candidates should be able to:

    • Explore the FortiSwitch portfolio and identify the supported management modes
    • Describe and deploy FortiSwitch in managed switch mode (FortiLink mode)
    • Understand Ethernet switching, VLANs, link aggregation (LAG), MCLAG, and Layer 2 discovery
