Enterprise networking has always been a complex web of overlapping technologies. This course will teach you how to configure and troubleshoot routing protocols and IP services using a large-scale network topology.
Network engineers have long struggled to keep pace with sprawling enterprise networks and the technical complexities associated with that expansion. In this course, Cisco Advanced Routing: Enterprise Networks, you’ll learn to design, implement, and troubleshoot growing networks using a large topology as a testbed. First, you’ll explore common enterprise routing protocols, such as Cisco EIGRP and BGP, and deploy them in accordance with best practices. Next, you’ll discover Cisco Dynamic Multipoint VPN, expanding the network to new WAN sites. Finally, you’ll learn how to optimize enterprise networks using a subset of common IP services relating to management, monitoring, and security. Most of these topics are discussed using both IPv4 and IPv6 in the context of dual-stacking. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Cisco enterprise networking needed to manage small to medium size enterprise networks.
Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Nick Russo, and welcome to my Cisco Advanced Routing: Enterprise Networks course. I've developed an action‑packed scenario involving a never‑before‑seen 20‑node topology covering both IPv4 and IPv6. Together, we'll explore the scenario‑based network and enable a wide variety of advanced features: EIGRP fundamentals, fast failover, and routing optimization; manipulating BGP policies at the internet edge; extending the enterprise using Cisco Dynamic Multipoint VPN; extranet integration with NetFlow collection and analysis; and various IP services such as DHCP, RADIUS, and device management. After completing this course, you'll know how to design, operate, and maintain small to medium‑sized business networks in production. Before beginning this course, I'd recommend the following prerequisite training. The Cisco Enterprise Core Learning Path is a great resource to provide intermediate networking skills. You don't have to watch all of it, but I suggest selecting a few courses to improve your weakest areas. At a minimum, I'd recommend these three courses as they introduce the core routing protocols. It's a good way to gauge your skills before starting any advanced training. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Cisco advanced routing techniques for enterprise networks, at Pluralsight.
