Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE)

Overview:

Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) v1.0 is a five-day course designed to help learners prepare for Cisco CCNP certification. The ROUTE course is a component of the CCNP curriculum.This 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

Who Should Attend:

The primary audience for this course is as follows:
•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, configuring and verification
•The typical job roles for this type of professional are network engineers, network operations center (NOC) technical support personnel, or help desk technicians
The secondary audience for this course is as follows:
•Any individual involved in implementation and verification of routing protocols in the enterprise networks

At Course Completion:

The ROUTE training reinforces the instruction by providing learners with hands-on labs to ensure they thoroughly understand how to implement advanced routing within their networks.
