ROUTE: Implementing Cisco IP Routing v2

Leads to CCNP Routing and Switching Certification

Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) v2.0 is an instructor-led training course presented by Cisco training partners to their end customers. This five-day course and 7.5 hours of self-paced e-learning 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.

Course Objectives

After completing this course the student should be able to:

  • 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 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 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.

Course Content

  • Planning Routing Services
  • Implementing an EIGRP based Solution
  • Implementing a Scalable Multiarea Network OSPF based Solution
  • Implement an IPv4 based redistribution solution
  • Implement Path Control
  • Connecting an Enterprise Network to ISP Networks
  • Implement Path Control
  • Implementing IPv6
  • Implementing Routing Facilities for Branch Offices and Mobile Workers

Target Audience

  • 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.

The secondary audience for this course is as follows:

  • Any individual involved in implementation and verification of routing protocols in enterprise networks.

Course Duration

5 days

Suggested Pre-requisites

The knowledge and skills that a student must have before attending this course are as follows:
