This important course is one of three courses required for the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification. The ROUTE course builds on the routing skills you developed in the CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum. You will learn the advanced routing topics you need to know to implement and manage an enterprise network of a medium or large size enterprise. Through lectures and real world hands-on labs you will learn the skills necessary to deploy and manage the key technologies in a Cisco routed network.

You will learn to correctly implement routing based solutions given a network design using Cisco IOS services and features, where implementation of routing includes planning, configuring and verification. Also, you will gain the necessary skills to implement and verify the many routing protocols used in enterprise networks.

  • Network Engineers
  • Network Operations Center (NOC) Technical Support Personnel
  • Help Desk Technicians
  • Network professionals

Upon completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe routing protocols, different remote connectivity options, and their impact on routing and implementing RIPng
  • Configure EIGRP in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Configure OSPF in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Implement route redistribution using filtering mechanisms
  • Implement path control using policy-based routing and IP SLA
  • Implement enterprise Internet connectivity
  • Secure Cisco routers according to best practices
  • Configure authentication for routing protocols

You must have the following knowledge and skills before attending the ROUTE course:

  • Network fundamentals
  • Establish Internet and WAN connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Basic networking security
  • Operate a medium-sized LAN with multiple switches, supporting VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree
  • Troubleshoot IP connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Configure and troubleshoot EIGRP and OSPF (IPv4 and IPv6)
  • Configure devices for SNMP, syslog, and NetFlow access
  • Manage Cisco device configurations, Cisco IOS images, and licenses

It is highly recommended that this course be taken after the following Cisco courses:

  • Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 1 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 (ICND2) or
  • Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices: Accelerated (CCNAX)
