Dante: Introduction to Managed Switches (SESSION FULL)

In-Person Only

Pre-registration for this session is full.

Prerequisite – Dante Certification Level 2, Second Edition
Intended audience: Intermediate to advanced Dante users.
Requirements: This class is entirely hands-on, and you must bring your PC or Apple computer with an RJ45 network port. (No Chromebooks or tablets)

This session offers a hands-on experience, with each table having its own Cisco CBS-350 switch to configure. Using the web interface, each student will establish administrative access, turn off EEE and optimize traffic using QoS and IGMP Snooping. For high-bandwidth links, a Link Aggregation Group (LAG) will be established. As time permits, we may also tackle VLANs and trunk lines.

This hands-on experience is for those who have never used a managed switch and would like a brief introduction. This is ideal for AV technicians who are taking on more responsibility with network management or whose Dante networks are growing to the point that it may be wise to engage some managed switch features.

Students can keep the Managed Switch Tutorial Guide booklets for future reference.
