Advice to help you take this exam

  • Complete the training and review all course materials and documents before you take the exam.
  • Exam items are based on expected knowledge acquired from job experience, an expected level of industry standard knowledge, or other prerequisites (events, supplemental materials, etc.).
  • Successful completion of the course alone does not ensure you will pass the exam.
  • Read this HPE Exam Preparation Guide and follow its recommendations.
  • Visit HPE Press for additional reference materials, study guides, practice tests, and HPE books.


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 HPE 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.
