Description

Many engineers work their whole careers without ever really looking under the hood to understand why a network was designed the way it was. Some of this is because their day-to-day duties don't require this knowledge, and some of this is because an engineer chooses to focus their knowledge on becoming exceptional operational engineers. In this course, Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks: Routing Protocols, you will take a closer look at the routing protocols that are commonly implemented in Enterprise networks, specifically covering EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS and BGP. First, you will review the basics of each of these protocols and some amount of the inner-workings of each of the protocols. Then, you will explore the basics of routing protocols including the different types and behaviors that are common between them. Next, you will learn about EIGRP, basic EIGRP concepts including neighborships, metrics, the topology table, summarization, and stub. After that, you will see basic OSPF concepts including neighborships, metrics, areas, the Link state database, summarization, and stub. Finally, you will explore IS-IS concepts including neighborships, metrics, and areas. You'll wrap up with a review of the basic BGP concepts including neighborships or peerings, and path selection. When you are finished with this course, you will have a firm base of understanding of the different routing protocols that are commonly implemented in an enterprise environment.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Welcome to plural sight. My name is Sean Wilkins, and I am a network engineer, author and technical editor. At In photos version. I'm excited to welcome you to my course designing Cisco Enterprise Networks Routing Protocols. This course is one of many courses that are being introduced into the pleural site library to cover network design. This course specifically is targeted on the common routing protocols that are implemented on enterprise network, as well as an overview of how they compare against each other. The modules that we will cover include common I 54 in V six rotting concepts, including the different types in behaviors that are common between routing protocol. Enterprise E J R. P design, including Neighbor Ships, Metrics and the Apology Table Enterprise SPF design, including Neighbor ships, Metrics areas and the Link State Database enterprise Highest Iess design, including neighbor ships, metrics and areas, as well as enterprise B G P design, including Pierre ings, attributes and pass selection. By the end of this course, you have a firm base of understanding of the different routing protocols that are commonly implemented in an enterprise environment. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with networking fundamentals, including I could Before in Ivy. Six addressing and an understanding of how networking devices interconnect together. I hope you'll join me on this journey toe Learn networking design with the designing Cisco Enterprise Networks Routing Protocols Course a plural site.
