This 5 day course is designed to provide network engineers and technicians with the knowledge and skills required to implement and support a service provider network. Cisco routers typically found in the service provider network are used for this course. Upon completing this course, learners will be able to configure, verify, and troubleshoot advanced Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) configuration, IP multicasting, and IPv6 transition mechanisms.

Hands on labs are used to gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS, IOS XE, and IOS XR Software features to operate and support the service provider network.

This course is intended primarily for network administrators, network engineers, network managers and systems engineers who would like to implement IP routing in service provider environments.

After you complete this course you will be able to:

  • Configure the provider network to support multiple BGP connections with customers and other autonomous systems
  • Describe common routing and addressing scalability issues in the provider network
  • Describe available BGP tools and features to secure and optimize the BGP routing protocol in a service provider environment
  • Introduce IP multicast services and the technologies that are present in IP multicasting
  • Introduce PIM-SM as the most current scalable IP multicast routing protocol
  • Describe service provider IPv6 transition implementations
