Today network engineers are employing more and more multilayer switched networks. These networks have the advantage of high throughput level 2 switching while retaining the level 3 routing functionality. The secret to the high performance of these networks is the hierarchical design model employing 3 layers Core, Distribution, and Access. This coupled with the advent of VLAN which breaks up collision domains has made the multilayer switched networks the design of choice.
In this advanced CCNA switching lab scenario we will configure a complex multilayer switched network employing all three level of this design topology. We will explore VLANs, Trunking, EtherChannel, and MLS as well as inter VLAN routing.
