Dante: Introduction to Managed Switch Configuration

Jun 15, 2023
Manufacturers' Training
CTS: 2
CTS-D: 2
CTS-I: 2
Session Description : Prerequisites: Must have passed Dante Certification Level 2 (2nd Edition).
Requirements: Bring your own Apple or Windows computer with an RJ45 Ethernet port (or a USB to Ethernet adapter). Configuration is not possible over WiFi.

This session offers a hands-on experience, with each table of 4 students sharing a Cisco CBS-350 switch to configure. Using the web interface, each team 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. Configurations will be exported and imported. If the team moves ahead quickly, exercises in VLANs and inter-VLAN routing are also available.
This class 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.
Lessons learned will help the student learn how to manage small to medium networks, and offer a better perspective when interfacing with IT professionals on Enterprise networks.
While this class works with the Cisco CBS350 switch, the concepts are generic in nature and can be applied to any network switch. In fact, while the lessons are taught using Dante AVoIP equipment, the lessons apply equally well to control systems, lighting, security or even your home network. Due to strong response to this session, we are offering it a second time: Thursday, June 15, 3:45 pm – 5:45 pm, Room W311CD: MT51: Dante: Introduction to Managed Switch Configuration
