IP Routing Technical Duration: 3 days

IP Routing Technical
In this comprehensive 3-day, generic routing course, you will develop an advanced set of skills to help you optimize the configuration, design and deployment of a router-based internetwork. The training will give you knowledge about the complex concepts and commands necessary to configure routes for scalable operation in large and/or growing networks.
The instructor will angle on the operational design and scaling principles of routing protocols used in large-scale networks.

This course is aimed at technical personnel that need a deeper understanding of how to implement advanced routing configurations.

Basic working knowledge of bridges and routers and a complete understanding of the OSI model, IP addressing, and IP subnetting.

This is a theoretical training with practical exercises.

NOTE: This course is not delivered with the FoldOut methodology.
