Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

Students learn routing technologies in WAN networks, both IGP and EGP routing protocols and redistribute of routing information between different systems. They learn how to practically implement IPv6 in networks. The obtained knowledge covers requirement on CCNP ROUTE certification.

Generic learning outcomes and competences

Students learn how to implement and optimized routing in large networks, redistribute and filter routing information. They will configure EIGRP, OSPF and BGP including redistribution. They will configure branch networks. They are able to implement IPv6 in networks including IPv6 routing.

Learning objectives

Overview of routing technologies in WAN networks. Implementation and configuration of EIGRP, multi-area OSPF, iBGP and eBGP. Redistribution of routing information. Optimization of routing. Connecting branch networks using broadband WAN technologies.

Why is the course taught

This course prepares students for CCNP ROUTE certification that is required for network administrators and designers.

Prerequisite kwnowledge and skills

Students are required to successfully pass CCNA4 Exploration course in Network Academy or hold CCNA certification.
