ROUTE - Implementing Cisco IP Routing v1.0

Course Description/Agenda

Learn the advanced routing skills you need to provide scalability for Cisco routers that are connected to LANs and WANs as part of a medium-to-large network site. You will learn how to dramatically increase the number of routers and sites using EIGRP and OSPF techniques, instead of redesigning the network when additional sites or configurations are added.

Your registration includes:

  • Enhanced hands-on labs to ensure that you thoroughly understand each technique
  • e-Learning CD with supplemental information to help your prepare for the ROUTE exam (642-902)
  • Five extra lab credits, good for 30 days, so you can practice and refine your skills

What You'll Learn

  • Plan and document the configuration and verification of routing protocols and their optimization in enterprise networks
  • 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 multiarea 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 multiprotocol network that uses Cisco IOS features to control path selection and provides a loop-free topology
  • Evaluate common network performance issues, and identify the tools needed to provide Layer 3 path control using Cisco IOS features
  • Implement and verify a Layer 3 solution using BGP to connect an enterprise network to a service provider

Who Should Attend

  • Network engineers, technical support personnel, and help desk technicians
  • Anyone involved in implementing, configuring, and verifying routing protocols in enterprise networks

Course Prerequisites

  • CCNA certification
  • Familiarity with internetworking technologies and the ability to perform basic router configuration
  • Experience installing, operating, and maintaining Cisco routers and switches in an enterprise environment
  • Knowledge of IP, including the ability to perform IP subnetting on non-octal boundaries, configure IP standard and extended access lists, operate and configure distance vector routing protocol, configure serial interface, and interpret a Cisco routing table
