Cisco IP Routing Training

Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) v2.0 is a 5-day training program where 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.


  • Taking ICND1 v2.0 and ICND2 v2.0 (or CCNAX v2.0) is highly recommended
  • Know how to:
    • Configure network fundamentals, including the ability to establish Internet, LAN, and WAN connectivity using both IPv4 and IPv6
    • Operate and support a medium-sized LAN that has multiple switches, including VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree functionality
    • Troubleshoot IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity issues
    • Configure and troubleshoot EIGRP and OSPF, for both IPv4 and IPv6
    • Configure devices for SNMP, Syslog, and NetFlow
    • Manage network device security, Cisco device configurations, Cisco IOS images, and licenses
  • ICND1 v2.0 – Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 1
  • ICND2 v2.0 – Interconnecting Cisco Networking Devices, Part 2
  • CCNAX v2.0 – CCNA Routing and Switching Boot Camp
