In this course students will learn how to implement typical routing solutions from a networking design by leveraging Cisco IOS services along with utilising configuration, planning and verification methodologies. You will then apply these skills to implement and verify routing protocol’s found in modern enterprise networks.

ROUTE v2.0 includes major updates and follows an updated blueprint. However, note that this course does not cover all items listed on the blueprint. Some older topics have been removed or simplified, while several new IPv6 routing topics have been added. Course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS Software Release 15 and technically updated. Course also introduces new type of labs, called discovery labs. Discovery labs are instructor guided lab through which student explores new topics in an interactive way. All labs are developed only as virtual labs. To get the full course experience, you will cover everything, including Introduction, Discovery labs, Summary, and Module Self-Check.
