Advice to help you take this exam

HPE highly recommends the associated training.
HPE exams test whether you have the knowledge and skills required of IT professionals. Many exam questions present a scenario that outlines a particular environment or problem. Some questions include exhibits.
If a question asks for more than one answer, select all correct options. There is no partial credit.
If a question takes too much time, mark the item for review and return to it at the end of the exam.
Read the entire question and consider all options before you answer. If the question includes an exhibit, study the exhibit and read the question again. Select the answer that fully responds to the question. If the question asks for more than one answer, select all correct answers. There is no partial credit.


This exam validates that you can:

Fundamental FlexNetwork architectures and technologies
• Describe unicast routing protocols, such as OSPF and BGP, and explain how these protocols are used to route traffic.
• Describe the purpose of multicast traffic, compare multicast routing protocols, such as PIM-DM and PIM-SM, and explain how these protocols route traffic.
• Describe network management and monitoring protocols and explain how technologies such as sFlow, NetFlow, NetStream, and RMON are used to monitor network traffic.
• Describe security technologies, such as ACLs, 802.1X, MAC-Auth, and Web-Auth, and explain how they are used.
• Describe QoS technologies, explain QoS mechansims supported on HPE switches and explain how they are used.
• Describe and differentiate technologies that provide redundancy and availability and explain how they provide these capabilities. The technologies include:
   o PVST+
   o RPVST+
   o UDLD
   o DLDP
   o Distributed trunking


HPE FlexNetwork products, solutions, and service offering
• Describe two tier and three tier HPE FlexCampus and FlexFabric solutions.


HPE FlexNetwork solution implementation (install, configure, setup)
• Configure HPE devices to implement technologies as per planned design and verify the configurations. The technologies include:
   o Mirroring
   o ACLs
   o 802.1X
   o MAC and Web Authentication
   o QoS
   o OSPF
PIM-DM and PIM-SM Configure HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC) to manage a network and configure HP switches so that they can be managed by HPE IMC within an SNMPv2c, SNMPv3 or 802.1X solution.


HPE FlexNetwork solution enhancement
• Optimize network availability using VRRP, IRF, IRF with MAD, and distributed trunking.
