Duration: 5 Day Hands on Lab & Lecture Course
Building Core Networks with OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and MPLS Bootcamp (BCN) is a powerful hands-on course that provides you with the required knowledge and skills to design, deploy, operate, and maintain an Internet service provider (ISP) backbone network. You will learn the primary principles of the routing protocols that are used in very large networks. Hands-on labs reinforce the lecture materials to make sure that you have the working skills to affect the networks you support.
BCN is offered in a traditional classroom or as an interactive online training delivered over Cisco® WebEx®. Both versions are led by the same knowledgeable instructors. The course materials are the same (although minor changes are made to accommodate the online environment), and both versions have the same hands-on labs. BCN Online offers the same learning experience as the traditional version with the added benefit of remote access.
- Identify the critical factors for availability, scalability, and manageability
- Implement an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP, either OSPF or IS-IS) into a large-scale hierarchical network using best current practices for scalability
- Implement BGP into a large-scale hierarchical network using best practices for scalability
- Control routing policy by influencing the BGP path selection process using route maps, prefix lists, and community strings
- Implement multihoming strategies using multiexit discriminators (MEDs) and local preference
- Implement and verify MPLS functionality in a large-scale network
- Implement and verify MPLS VPN connectivity in intra-autonomous-system environments
- Implement and verify MPLS traffic engineering practices
- Implement Layer 2 VPNs using Any Transport over MPLS (AToM)
Who Should Attend
This course is intended for network professionals, including designers, implementers, and support staff involved with design and deployment of large-scale networks for large enterprises or high-end ISP networks that use scalable technologies such as Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), or Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS).
