CCNP ROUTE: Implementing Cisco IP Routing Course (Instructor-Led)

Format: Online
This course is delivered online over 12 weeks, during which participants view online course materials and complete learning activities at a time that is convenient for them. Scheduled Live Instructor Coaching Sessions – optional, but participation is strongly suggested – provide direct interaction with the instructor.
Participants spend approximately 6 - 10 hours per week, on average, completing the various course activities in order to maximize the learning benefits. Approximately 80% of this schedule is determined by the participant and approximately 20% (the Live Instructor Coaching Sessions) is scheduled by the instructor. The schedule for the Coaching Sessions will be discussed and selected during the course orientation.

System Requirements: A high speed Internet connection (Cable or DSL) and Internet Explorer 8.0 or above


CCNP ROUTE: Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) is designed to help cable professionals prepare for Cisco CCNP® certification. The ROUTE course is a component of the CCNP curriculum.

The ROUTE course is designed for cable network engineers with at least one year of professional work experience, who are ready to advance their skills and work independently on complex network solutions. Cable professionals will learn to plan, configure and verify the implementation of secure enterprise LAN and WAN routing solutions using a range of routing protocols. The course also covers configuration of solutions to support branch offices and mobile workers.

Course includes:

  • Cisco online content, practice exams and labs
  • Complimentary Cisco textbook
  • SCTE Course Certificate
  • 3 college credits
  • 6 Recertification Units (RUs) toward SCTE certification renewal

Course Outline:

  1. Routing Services
  2. Configuring the Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol
  3. Configuring the Open Shortest Path First Protocol
  4. Manipulating Routing Updates
  5. Implementing Path Control
  6. Implementing a Border Gateway Protocol Solution for ISP Connectivity
  7. Implementing Routing Facilities for Branch Offices and Mobile Workers

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to:

  • Plan and document the configuration and verification of routing protocols and their optimization in enterprise networks.
  • Identify the technologies, components, and metrics of EIGRP used to implement and verify EIGRP routing in diverse, large-scale internetworks based on requirements.
  • Identify, analyze, and match OSPF multi area routing functions and benefits for routing efficiencies in network operations in order to implement and verify OSPF routing in a complex enterprise network.
  • Implement and verify a redistribution solution in a multi-protocol network that uses Cisco IOS features to control path selection and provides a loop-free topology according to a given network design and requirements.
  • Evaluate common network performance issues and identify the tools needed to provide Layer 3 path control that uses Cisco IOS features to control the path.
  • Implement and verify a Layer 3 solution using BGP to connect an enterprise network to a service provider.

Cisco Certification Exam Preparation
This course prepares students to take the Implementing Cisco IP Routing exam (ROUTE 642-902) which is a qualifying exam for the Cisco Certified Network Professional CCNP® and Cisco Certified Design Professional CCDP® certifications. The ROUTE 642-902 exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills necessary to use advanced IP addressing and routing in implementing scalable and secure Cisco ISR routers connected to LANs and WANs. The exam also covers configuration of secure routing solutions to support branch offices and mobile workers.
Completion of the CCNP ROUTE course is not required prior to taking the certification exam. The exam is administered through Pearson VUE (Virtual University Enterprises) and is not part of the course.
