Start Course
Description

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.

Start Course
Description

Believe it or not, enterprise and service provider networking technologies are converging, and this course helps illustrate that. In this course, Cisco Advanced Routing: Tier 3 Service Providers, you’ll learn to design, configure, and manage a small Internet Service Provider (ISP), which in many ways resembles a large enterprise. First, you’ll explore OSPF, a complex and popular routing protocol common deployed in enterprises and service providers alike. Next, you’ll apply BGP both for upstream Internet connectivity and MPLS layer-3 VPN service, which large enterprises commonly use to provide multi-tenancy at scale. Finally, you’ll learn how to optimize the network 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 large sized enterprise networks.

Securely Transitioning Enterprise Networks to IPv6

Start Course
Description

Migrating enterprise networks from IPv4 to IPv6 is often harder than it appears given the inevitable business requirements that constrain the rollout. In this course, Securely Transitioning Enterprise Networks to IPv6, you'll learn to perform that rollout with minimal business disruption and in a manner that is built to last. You'll first learn about this multi-step process, and like most journeys, some of the steps are temporary and suboptimal. One such example is NAT64, providing "quick and dirty" access to critical IPv4 services from IPv6 Internet clients. Next, you'll explore various mechanisms to interconnect IPv6 islands across a larger IPv4 networks using tunneling techniques such as ISATAP, 6rd, 6in4, and GRE/IPsec. Finally, you'll discover how to properly "dual stack" a network so that IPv4 and IPv6 run alongside one another. Dual-stack designs are conceptually easy but require diligence with respect to routing, services, and security. When you're finished with this course, you'll have the skills and knowledge of IPv6 transition techniques needed to properly migrate an enterprise network given a variety of business constraints.

Start Course
Description

Developing QoS designs is the first step in building an equitable IT infrastructure that gives each application the treatment it requires, based on a company's unique requirements. In this course, Designing QoS for IP and MPLS Networks, you’ll learn about the broad QoS strategies that exist for solving this complex problem. First, you’ll compare IntServ and DiffServ, and learn why only one of them is commonly deployed today. Next, you’ll discover the breadth and depth of the DiffServ toolset, including classification and marking, queuing and scheduling, and traffic conditioning. Finally, you’ll learn how to leverage those DiffServ tools to develop vendor-neutral QoS designs in campus, Internet edge, Wide Area Network (WAN), and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) carrier environments. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of a QoS designer needed to analyze requirements and build architectures that network engineers can implement.

Description

After developing comprehensive QoS designs to meet business needs, engineers need to configure those policies in the network, and ensure that they are working as intended. In this course, Implementing and Validating QoS Designs, you’ll learn how to deploy complex and nuanced classification policies that mark IP packets for QoS treatment on ingress. Next, you’ll discover the proper techniques for allocating bandwidth to various types of network flows, ensuring equitable treatment for business critical applications based on their performance specifications. Finally, you’ll learn how to apply traffic conditioners, such as policers and shapers, to slow down the flow of traffic, achieving the desired transmission rates required by your business, or that of your partners, customers, and providers. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of a QoS engineer needed to implement QoS policies and validate their functionality in the network.
