Cisco CCNP R&S: ROUTE online training course will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to plan, implement, and monitor a scalable routed network. Students will focus on routing protocols for both IPv4 and IPv6: EIGRP and OSPF for an enterprise and BGP for enterprise Internet connectivity. Students will also learn how to redistribute routes, implement path control, and secure Cisco routers.
