Deploying Cisco Service Provider Network Routing

This 5-day course is designed to provide service provider professionals with the knowledge and skills required to implement advanced routing when providing scalability on Cisco routers connected to LANs and WANs.

Use of these techniques should reduce the need to redesign the network when additional sites or wiring configurations are added. Hands-on labs provide the practice required to underline the advance routing concepts and methodologies, as well as providing practical experience with the Cisco IOS/IOS XE and IOS XR features required to support a Service Provider network.

Target Audience

This course is designed for network administrators, network engineers, network managers, and systems engineers who are involved in the implementation and configuartion of IP routing in a service provider environment as well as individuals looking for CCNP Service Provider accreditation.
