Advanced Routing / 70 clock hours

This course teaches students how to implement, monitor, and maintain routing services in an enterprise network. Students will learn how to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex enterprise LAN and WAN routing solutions, using a range of routing protocols in IPv4 and IPv6 environments. The course also covers the configuration of secure routing solutions to support branch offices and mobile workers. Comprehensive labs emphasize hands-on learning and practice to reinforce configuration skills.

Implementing IP Routing / 70 clock hours

This course teaches students an in-depth knowledge of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the routing protocol that is one of the underlying foundations of the Internet. Students will explore the theory of BGP, configuration of BGP on routers, and detailed troubleshooting information along with hands-on exercises that provide students with the skills needed to configure and troubleshoot BGP networks in enterprise environments. Prerequisite: Advanced Routing

Implementing IP Switching / 70 clock hours

This course teaches students how to implement, monitor, and maintain switching in converged enterprise networks. Students will learn how to plan, configure, and verify the implementation of complex enterprise switching solutions. The course also covers the secure integration of Virtual LANs (VLANs), Wireless LANs (WLANs), as well as integrating voice, and video into enterprise networks. Comprehensive labs emphasize hands-on learning and practice to reinforce configuration skills. Prerequisite: Implementing IP Routing.

Maintaining and Troubleshooting IP Networks / 70 clock hours

This course teaches students how to monitor and maintain complex, enterprise routed and switched IP networks. Skills learned include the planning and execution of regular network maintenance, as well as support and troubleshooting using technology-based processes and best practices, based on systematic and industry recognized approaches. Extensive labs emphasize hands-on learning and practice to reinforce troubleshooting techniques. Prerequisite: IP Switching
