Course Overview

Course Duration: 5 days
SPADVROUTE - Deploying Cisco Service Provider Advanced Routing  In this course, you will focus on using Cisco routers that are typically found in the service provider network. You will cover various technologies that are used to offer different services to customers, and you'll learn to configure, verify, and troubleshoot advanced Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) configuration, IP multicasting, and IPv6 transition mechanisms. Through hands-on labs, you will gain practical skills deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support service provider network.

Who Should Attend

  • Network administrators, engineers, and managers who would like to implement IP routing in service provider environments
  • Systems engineers
  • Individuals preparing for CCNP Service Provider certification
