HK742 – HP Core/Distribution Network Technologies Using Comware Software
5 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Network Management/Design

Course Details

The HP Core/Distribution Network Technologies using Comware Software (HK742) course is a 5-day course. This training prepares learners on how to implement HP A-Series products into network solutions based on HP Flex Network architecture.

The HP Core/Distribution Network Technologies using Comware Software course describes techniques for designing and implementing resilient switched and routed converged networks based on the HP A-Series switches. The HP A-Series switches play an important role in the HP FlexNetwork, the only converged networking architecture that spans from the virtualized Data Center to the virtual workplace for cloud, multimedia, and mobile services with integrated security solutions.

This training will provide network engineers and technicians with the knowledge and skills necessary to configure HP A-Series switches supporting network redundancy at Layer 2 and Layer 3, networks supporting IPv4 and IPv6 as well as OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 and IP multicast routing supported network systems. Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) will also be covered in this training. This course will exist of about 60% hands-on labs and 40% lecture and learning enhancing activities. This course prepares candidates for the Accredited Solutions Expert (ASE) certification within the HP ExpertONE program.
