Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE)

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.

Learning 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 o 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 o BGP for enterprise IPv4 and IPv6 Internet connectivity
  • Secure Cisco routers according to best practices including the configuring routing protocol authentication

  • Taking ICND1 v2.0 and ICND2 v2.0 (or CCNAX v3.0) is highly recommended
