Dynamic routing protocols are often the core of an enterprise network. This course will introduce the concept of dynamic routing and then examine OSPF operations as well as configuring a network to use OSPF.
Routing protocols are used to exchange routing information between routers so that engineers do not need to maintain complex static routing plans. In this course, Introducing Dynamic Routing for Cisco CCNA 200-125/100-105, you will examine the different types of routing protocols and their operation. You will start with examining the behavior of a simple dynamic routing protocol, then examine RIP and OSPF. Next, you will implement OSPFv3 for IPv6 networks. Finally you will examine the OSPF neighbor table, OSPF link state data base, and routing table for both IPv4 and IPv6. By the end of this course, you'll be able to implement the OSPF routing protocol to allow your network to dynamically exchange routing information, and create a redundant network.
Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Ross Bagurdes, and welcome to my course Introduction to Dynamic Routing. I'm a network engineer with 20 years experience building and managing enterprise networks and teaching people about them. One of the fundamental roles of a network engineer is to make sure packets can successfully pass through an internetwork, and dynamic routing protocols are invaluable in providing the mechanism to create these routing tables throughout the internetwork to provide the best path for a packet to travel, as well as self-heal the network when incidents occur. Some of the major topics we're going to cover include the basics of dynamic routing, as well as implementing Routing Information Protocol, or RIP. Additionally, we're going to understand and implement a single area Open Shortest Path First, or OSPF network. By the end of this course, you'll be able to implement the OSPF routing protocol and allow your network to dynamically exchange routing information and create a redundant network. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with all the previous courses in the CCNA training series, and from here you should feel comfortable diving into the rest of the CCNA training. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn dynamic routing with the Introduction to Dynamic Routing course at Pluralsight.
