Detailed Description of ROUTE course:

In the beginning of this course you will learn to plan routing services to Cisco requirements, assessing complex enterprise networking requirements. You will gain an understanding of the Cisco hierarchical network model and the Cisco enterprise architecture; learn about traffic conditions in a converged network, the Cisco SONA framework, advanced routing protocols as well as common maintenance processes and procedures.

The course continues to further explore implementation of EIGRP-based solutions. You will learn exactly how EIGRP is operated and employed with its four key technologies and five components of metric used to calculate the range of pathways between routers. You will create a typical implementation plan for an EIGRP-based solution and document the implementation, operations, and maintenance processes and learn the commands used in a basic EIGRP configuration task.

You will learn how to create neighbor relationships using the neighbor command and verify that the router recognizes EIGRP neighbors and routes. Once you understand these basic commands and protocols, you will learn to verify basic EIGRP operations, and that the router recognizes EIGRP neighbors and their routes, control routing update advertisements using the passive-interface command, configure and verify the last-resort gateway or default route and compare manual route summarization to default automatic route summarization.

We will further your knowledge of EIGRP in the enterprise WAN architecture and its effect on EIGRP operations. You will learn to create and map physical and logical multi-point interfaces using static as well as dynamic DLCI mapping. We will discuss the features of load-balancing across equal and unequal paths, configuration and verification of EIGRP operating over Frame Relay and bandwidth use across WAN links.

Part two concludes with EIGRP MD5 authentication configuration and troubleshooting and advanced EIGRP features in an enterprise network including factors affecting scalability in large internetworks and using queries to update routing tables when a route is lost and there is no successor. Among other efficiency-related operations you will learn to minimize active routes, reduce EIGRP queries, and improve network scaling.

The third part of this course deals with implementing scalable multi-area networks utilizing an OSPF-based solution. You will learn how to establish neighbor adjacencies and how OSPF calculates the best path to each destination network and how link-state updates (LSUs) verify active links. We will then further discuss different OSPF area types and how to implement a typical plan and documentation package for an OSPF-based solution. Many other topics will be touched upon including the exchange and synchronization of link-state databases (LSDBs) and maintaining a database of the most recent link-state sequence numbers and verifying that OSPF packets are flowing properly between two routers.

Since optimization and efficiency are key points, we will also explore improving routing performance in complex enterprise networks. We will discuss the OSPF network types and how to determine adjacency behavior on point-to-point links, broadcast networks, metro ethernet, EoMPLS networks, and MPLS networks. You will learn how to properly select a DR and BDR and implement OSPF over frame relay NBMA, point-to-point as well as multipoint frame relay networks and use subinterfaces in OSPF over frame relay.

Part three concludes with an in-depth analysis of the configuration and verification of basic single-area and multiarea OSPF routing. You will learn step-by-step how to enable the route process, configure a router ID, and enable OSPF on networks and interfaces using the network and ip ospf commands. We will also cover route summarization, OSPF special area types, and OSPF authentication, including troubleshooting simple password and MD5 authentication.

Sections four and five will be focusing on implementation, configuration, and verification of IPv4-based redistribution solutions and path control. You will learn to address network routing and path control performance and security issues, going in-depth into how distribution lists, prefix lists, and route maps work and how they control routing updates. Among other things we will explore the use of these maps to filter routes and learn about suppressing routing updates using passive interfaces.

In part six we will cover the planning and connection of an enterprise network to an ISP network,
how routing information is exchanged across an ISP, the types of enterprise-to-ISP connections, and IPv6 implementation and routing for branch offices and remote workers. In conclusion of section six you will witness a directed demonstration of implementing special facilities for mobile workers.

See what our students are saying about our training:

The instructor was the best teacher I have ever had at any level. I learned more in the last 7 days than I did studying on my own for the past 6 months. The material was presented in a way that was easy for everyone to understand. He by far had the most knowledge of anyone I have ever met in the subject and I hope to learn more from him in the future.

Fantastic instructor! Really knew the material, and was adept at communicating in an understandable manner to those without an IT background. I couldn't ask for a more genuine, concerned instructor who had her students successful learning as the main motivator for everything she did. Simply superb!

- Timothy Dalhouse
Spectrum Training

Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.

- Thomas Dunn
