Course Overview

ROUTE v2.0 includes major updates and follows an updated blueprint. However, note that this course does not cover all items listed on the blueprint. Some older topics have been removed or simplified, while several new IPv6 routing topics have been added. Course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS Software Release 15 and technically updated. Course also introduces new type of labs, called discovery labs.

Discovery labs are instructor guided lab through which student explores new topics in an interactive way. All labs are developed only as virtual labs. To get the full course experience, you should cover everything, including Introduction, Discovery labs, Summary, and Module Self-Check.

Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE)  is also available in Digital Learning.  365-day subscription for $745.00.  See Digital Learning for purchase or call 703.467.8606.

Learning Credits: 
  • The goal of the course is to: Build upon the knowledge and skills from CCNA Routing and Switching and help you expand competencies to plan, implement, and monitor a scalable routing network.

    Upon completing this course, you will be able to meet these objectives:

    • 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 and configure authentication for routing protocols

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