IOSXR304: Cisco IOS XR Broadband Network Gateway Implementation and Verification

The Cisco IOS XR Broadband Network Gateway Implementation and Verification (IOSXR304) v1.0 course teaches you how to successfully deploy, configure, operate, maintain, and support a Cisco IOS® XR Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) solution. This course will show you how to implement and verify BNG on a Cisco IOS XR device to manage subscriber access. You will also learn how to implement and verify subscriber management functions, including authentication, authorization, and accounting of subscriber sessions, address assignment, security, policy management, and Quality of Service (QoS).
