EIGRP is a routing protocol that is commonly used on enterprise networks, but often it is not completely understood. In this course, Protocol Deep Dive: EIGRP, you will learn foundational knowledge of EIGRP. First, you will learn about the EIGRP's essential concepts, which will then be built on as the course continues. Next, you will focus on EIGRP neighborships, how they work, and what can prevent them from working. You will also learn how information is exchanged between EIGRP devices and how to understand why each message is sent, as well as move to a lab environment where you can see the concepts in operation. Finally, you will explore a few more advanced EIGRP topics that are commonly seen on modern networks, and then end the course with a module on EIGRP load balancing and how its operations differ from other routing protocol options. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of EIGRP needed to successfully navigate its use in most common enterprise environments.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Sean Wilkins, and welcome to my course, Protocol Deep Dive: EIGRP. I am a network engineer, author, and technical editor at InfoDispersion. EIGRP is a routing protocol that is commonly used on enterprise networks, but often is not completely understood. This course focuses on providing the learner with a more in-depth understanding of EIGRP and its operations. While this course doesn't require previous EIGRP knowledge, it will help in ensuring the student have a perspective of where it fits inside networking generally. Some of the major topics that we will cover include core EIGRP concepts, EIGRP neighborships and their establishment, EIGRP packet and message types and their uses, EIGRP route summarization, and EIGRP load balancing. By the end of this course, you'll have an in-depth knowledge of EIGRP and its operations and be able to better navigate its use in modern enterprise environments. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about EIGRP with the Protocol Deep Dive: EIGRP course at Pluralsight.
