ROUTE - Implementing Cisco IP Routing v2.0

5 days

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.

What You'll Learn

  • 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 authentication

Who Should Attend

  • Taking ICND1 v2.0 and ICND2 v2.0 (or CCNAX v2.0) is highly recommended
  • Know how to:
    • Configure network fundamentals, including the ability to establish Internet, LAN, and WAN connectivity using both IPv4 and IPv6
    • Operate and support a medium-sized LAN that has multiple switches, including VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree functionality
    • Troubleshoot IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity issues
    • Configure and troubleshoot EIGRP and OSPF, for both IPv4 and IPv6
    • Configure devices for SNMP, Syslog, and NetFlow
    • Manage network device security, Cisco device configurations, Cisco IOS images, and licenses
