This course addresses the tasks that network managers and administrators need to perform when managing access and controlling overhead traffic in growing routed networks once basic connectivity has been established.  R
ecommended for those interested in becoming a Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) in routing and switching.

The course discusses router capabilities used to control traffic over LANs and WANs, as well as connecting a corporate network to an Internet Service Provider (ISP).  This is a hands-on workshop with numerous lab exercises applying the course concepts.

Provides preparation for exam 300-101 and assumes that the student has already completed the Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices (ICND) course or has equivalent internetworking experience. 

Simplification of IP address management at branch offices by implementing a hierarchical design.

Implementation of appropriate technologies for a scalable routed internetwork that includes link state protocols and redistribution.

Configuration of edge routers to properly interconnect into the BGP cloud for a single or multi-homed interconnection to an ISP's BGP network.

Selection and configuration of appropriate access lists for controlling accessibility to networks or devices and to minimize overhead traffic.

Includes coverage of OSPF, EIGRP, IS-IS, and BGP routing protocols, hierarchical design, route redistribution, route maps, and policy-based routing.
