ROUTE – Implementing Cisco IP Routing v2.0

In this course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to plan, implement, and monitor a scalable routed network. You will focus on routing protocols for both IPv4 and IPv6: EIGRP and OSPF for an enterprise and BGP for enterprise Internet connectivity. You will also learn how to redistribute routes, implement path control, and secure Cisco routers.

Audience:

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