About this course

The ROUTE course is a component of the CCNP Routing and Switching curriculum. This course is designed to provide professionals working with medium to large networks with the skills and knowledge required to incorporate advanced routing concepts when implementing scalability for Cisco routers that are connected to LANs and WANs. Students will build upon the knowledge and skills from CCNA Routing and Switching and help expand competencies to plan, implement, and monitor a scalable routing network. The overall design of the new ROUTE training is now heavily focused on lab-based learning. Some older topics have been removed or simplified from ROUTE v1.0, while several new IPv6 routing topics have been added. The course content has been adapted to Cisco IOS Software Release 15 and technically updated.

Target Audience

The course is appropriate for enterprise network engineers with at least one year of job experience who are ready to advance their skills and work independently on complex network solutions.
