Description: NSE 6/FORTISWITCH TRAIN 2 DAYS
NSE 6 / FortiSwitch – lectures – 3 days
In this three-day 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.
