Implementing Cisco IP Routing

5 Days

Price: $3295

Course Schedule

Overview

Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) is an instructor-led training course presented by Cisco training partners to their end customers. This five-day course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco CCNP certification. The ROUTE course is a component of the CCNP curriculum.

The ROUTE course is designed to provide professionals of medium to large network sites with information on the use of advanced routing in implementing scalability for Cisco routers that are connected to LANs and WANs. The goal is to train professionals to dramatically increase the number of routers and sites using these techniques instead of redesigning the network when additional sites or wiring configurations are added. The ROUTE training reinforces the instruction by providing students with hands-on labs to ensure they thoroughly understand how to implement advanced routing within their networks.


Objectives

Upon completing this course, the student will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Plan and document the configuration and verification of routing protocols and their optimization in enterprise networks.
  • Identify the technologies, components, and metrics of EIGRP used to implement and verify EIGRP routing in diverse, large-scale internetworks based on requirements.
  • Identify, analyze, and match OSPF multi-area  routing functions and benefits for routing efficiencies in network operations in order to implement and verify OSPF routing in a complex enterprise network
  • Implement and verify a redistribution solution in a multi-protocol network that uses Cisco IOS features to control path selection and provides a loop-free topology according to a given network design and requirements
  • Evaluate common network performance issues and identify the tools needed to provide Layer 3 path control that uses Cisco IOS features to control the path
  • Implement and verify a Layer 3 solution using BGP to connect an enterprise network to a service provider

Audience

This course is intended for those engineers who are candidates for Cisco CCNP certifications as well as those who are candidates for Cisco CCIE Routing and Switching and CCIE certifications.  Others who will benefit from this course are:

  • Network professionals who want to correctly implement routing-based solutions given a network design using Cisco IOS services and features, where implementation of routing includes planning, configuration, and verification.
  • The typical job roles for this type of network professional are network engineers; network operations center (NOC) technical support personnel, and help desk technicians.
