Routers are the glue that holds modern internetworks together. This course will get you up to speed with the basics of IP routing, including IP addressing, routing protocols and first hop redundancy, and device security on the control plane.
Ensuring that data can efficiently flow throughout the data center is paramount in modern networking designs. In this course, Routing for CCNA Data Center (200-150/200-155), you will get a solid overview of IP routing in a modern datacenter. First, you will explore IP addressing and subnetting by taking a deep dive on both IPv4 and IPv6. Next, you will learn the basics of routing, including a discussion of routing protocols and the various networking models that enable them. Finally, you will discover first hop redundancy and basic IP security. When you are finished with this course, you will have a solid grasp of IP subnetting, routing, and security that will help you as you study for the CCNA Data Center exams.
Course Overview Hi everyone, welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Greg Dickinson and this is Routing for CCNA Data Center. I am a network engineer at a regional bank in my home state of Alabama. I have 20 years of experience building and managing networks of all sizes in a variety of industries. I've managed to make a pretty decent career out of my love of technology and I'm happy to share the knowledge I've gained over the years with whomever might listen. Over the last few years I've specialized in Cisco VoIP technologies and the underlying networks that make those systems work. This course will help you understand the basics of IP routing. This is, of course, a very complex topic, but this course provides a good introduction to the topic, allowing you to take the knowledge and move forward to implementing IP routing in a data center near you. Some of the major topics that we will cover include: the basics of IP addressing, for both IPv4 and IPv6, so you can accurately describe networks of different sizes within your larger enterprise network; the basics of IP routing, including discussing static routing and the basics of routing protocols; configuring first hop redundancy protocols, so you can ensure routing survivability in the event of a hardware failure; and securing your router using access control lists and login authentication. By the end of this course you'll have a basic understanding of IP addressing and routing in a Cisco network. Before beginning the course, you ideally should be familiar with basic networking concepts, such as IP addressing and basic switch operations, as well as a familiarity of the Cisco CLI. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn routing configuration with the Routing for CCNA Data Center course at Pluralsight.
