This book serves as both an exam preparation guide for the Designing & Troubleshooting Open Standards Networks (HP0-Y32) Certification Exam, and as a valuable reference guide for designing, configuring, managing and supporting HP Data Networks. Not only does the book address technologies such as: OSI Layer 2 switching, STP (both proprietary and standard), Link Aggregation, IRF, IP Addressing/Subnetting, Dynamic IP Routing, NAT/PAT, QoS and Access Control Lists, but it also provides guidelines for getting these technologies to effectively interoperate among multiple vendors, as well as troubleshooting common issues with implementing these various technologies.
Organized along the HP0-Y32 Exam Objectives, chapters can be studied independently or comprehensively when preparing for the HP ASE certification HP0-Y32 exam. Once you have passed the exam, it will continue to serve as a valuable tool when studying for further certification exams (e.g. HP Master ASE), and when solving problems in your day-to-day responsibilities of supporting data networks.
