Course Information

Course Description

​In this course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to plan, implement, and monitor a scalable routed network. You will focus on routing protocols for both IPv4 and IPv6: EIGRP and OSPF for an enterprise and BGP for enterprise Internet connectivity. You will also learn how to redistribute routes, implement path control, and secure Cisco routers.

Course Objectives

Routing protocols, network technologies, and remote connectivity options

RIPng in an IPv6 environment

Technologies, operations, and metrics that EIGRP uses

Configure and verify EIGRP in IPv4 and IPv6 environments including optimizing its behavior and named EIGRP configuration

Multiarea OSPF including over different network types and how to optimize its database

Configure and verify OSPFv2 in IPv4 environments and OSPFv3 in IPv4 and IPv6 environments

Route redistribution and how it is implemented using distribute list, prefix list, and route map filtering mechanisms

Use Cisco Express Forwarding for efficient Layer 3 packet forwarding

Implement path control using policy based routing and IP Service Level Agreement (SLA)

Establishing enterprise Internet connectivity for IPv4 and IPv6

BGP for enterprise IPv4 and IPv6 Internet connectivity


Secure Cisco routers according to best practices including the configuring routing protocol
