CCNP Routing Certification


This course is designed for 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

This course is a component of the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching curriculum designed to help delegates with information on the use of advanced routing in implementing scalability for Cisco routers that are connected to LANs and WANs.

Course Objective:

completion of this course, the delegate will be able to: This course forms part of the following Certification Required topics are covered for the Cisco Exam: 642-902 the configuration and verification of routing protocols and its optimization in enterprise networks Identify the technologies, components, and metrics of EIGRP to implement and verify EIGRP routing in diverse, large-scale internetworks based on requirements Identify, analyze, and match OSPF multiarea routing functions and benefits for routing efficiencies in network operations in order to implement and verify OSPF routing in a complex enterprise network Implement and verify a redistribution solution in a multiprotocol network that uses IOS features to control path selection and loop free topology according to a given network design and requirements Evaluate common network performance issues and identify the tools needed to provide a layer 3 path control that uses IOS features to control the path Implement and verify a layer 3 solution using BGP to connect an enterprise network to a service provider.
