Advanced Cisco Routing

Training Duration:

5 days


Employees of federal, state and local governments; and businesses working with the government.


To fully benefit from this training a client typically will have attended the CCNA class and passed the CCNA® certification test. Successful clients are recommended to have the following prerequisite skills and knowledge to be at a level appropriate for entering Advanced Cisco Routing:

  • Networking terms, numbering schemes, and topologies
  • Open System Interconnection (OSI) reference model
  • Operating and configuring a Cisco® router
  • TCP/IP stack and configuring IP addresses
  • IP subnetting to include complex subnetting and variable-length subnet masking (VLSM)
  • Routing protocol operation and configuration for
  • Using, implementing, and configuring static and default routes
  • Interpreting the contents, entries, and indicators from a Cisco® routing table
  • Filtering traffic with standard and extended access lists
  • Verifying basic router configurations using show and debug command output
  • Verifying basic switch configurations using show command output
  • Configuring a WAN serial interface using HDLC, PPP, and PVCs.

After completing this training, clients should be able to:

  • Describe advanced IP addressing to include:  Variable-length subnet mask,  Route summarization, Classless Interdomain Routing (CIDR) and Using Network Address Translation (NAT) with route maps
  • Understand and confgure basic IPv6 using Cisco® routers
  • Identify advanced IP routing principles, including: Static and dynamic routing characteristics; Classless routing and network boundary summarization
  • Configure Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) for a scalable network
  • Configure Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) for a scalable multiarea network
  • Configure Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) for a scalable multiarea network
  • Manipulate routing updates and packet flow using: Redistribution, Distribution lists, Administrative distance, Route maps and Policy-based routing
  • Configure basic Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) for internal and external Border Gateway Protocol connections
  • Implement IP Multicasting and Multicast Routing

What’s Included:

Our courseware is developed in-house, allowing us to give our clients the most up-to-date information in this area of study as well as the incorporation of real world networking experiences.

  • A Cisco Press Textbook
  • A printed manual that includes all power point slides
  • A copy of the lab manual, allowing participants to go back over labs until they feel comfortable with them
  • Participants will have access to their own rack of equipment to complete labs.
  • The ability to remote into racks from home for further study after classes (as long as rack space is available)
  • One-on-one help during labs

What Clients Have to Say

“I have attended several training sessions at ITdojo and I have been impressed with the seminar each time. The instructor has always gone out of his way to tailor the training to my specific situation. The small seminar size allows everyone to get significant one on one time with the instructor. On top of that, the provided slides and lab manuals have made it easy for me to go back and review material months after the traininig. ITdojo is the preferred training site for all of my network security needs.”
