ROUTE Implementing Cisco IP Routing v2

This 5 day course is designed to provide professionals working with medium to large networks with the skills and knowledge required to incorporate advanced routing concepts when implementing scalability for Cisco routers that are connected to LANs and WANs.

Delegates will be able 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.

Labs are an important feature of this course with 2 different types of labs being used to aid learning. Discovery labs are instructor guided labs through which delegates explore new topics in an interactive way.  The challenge Labs are designed to test delegates' understanding of the topics being taught and to provide vital hands-on practice.

Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) v2.0 is designed to help delegates prepare for Cisco CCNP certification. The ROUTE course is a component of the CCNP curriculum.

Target Audience:

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.


Learning Objectives

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Describe routing protocols, different remote connectivity options, and their impact on routing and implement RIPng
  • Configure EIGRP in IPv4 and IPv6 environment
  • Configure OSPF in IPv4 and IPv6 environment
  • 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


Knowledge and skill level equal to Cisco CCNA certification.

Knowledge and experience of the implementation and verification of enterprise routing and switching technologies as offered by the Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 1 Version 2.0 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 Version 2.0 (ICND2) courses or equivalent skills and knowledge.

Please Note: In addition to knowledge and skill level equal to Cisco CCNA certification, it is recommended that the learner has practical experience in installing, operating and maintaining Cisco routers and switches in an enterprise environment.
