CCNP Routing & Switching @ Edinburgh

March 16, 2019 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm
62 West Harbour Road
Edinburgh EH5 1PW

This course has three components
CCNP Routing:
This module covers routing protocols and related technologies at the professional level. The backbone of the course is focused on EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, and IPv6. You’ll dive into how the protocols build neighbour relationships between devices, exchange routing information, and make routing decisions based on that data. This course also covers path manipulation, route filtering, and route redistribution. Additional topics include IP SLA, PBR, DHCP, and NAT.

CCNP Switching:
This module covers switch-related technologies including VLANs, Virtual Trunking Protocol (VTP), Spanning-Tree (STP), Rapid Spanning-Tree (RSTP), Multiple Spanning-Tree Protocol (MSTP), Cisco Express Forwarding, Layer 3 Switching Solutions, and High Availability features.

CCNP Troubleshooting:
This module will cover all troubleshooting labs for the Routing & Switching mentioned above.

Course Objective: CCNP Routing
Upon completing this course, the student will be able to meet these overall objectives:

• Plan and document the configuration and verification of routing protocols and their optimization in enterprise networks.
• Identify the technologies, components, and metrics of EIGRP used to implement and verify EIGRP routing in diverse, large-scale internetworks based on requirements.
• Identify, analyze, and match OSPF multi-area routing functions and benefits for routing efficiencies in network operations in order to implement and verify OSPF routing in a complex enterprise network.
• Implement and verify a redistribution solution in a multi-protocol network that uses Cisco IOS features to control path selection and provides a loop-free topology according to a given network design and requirements.
• Evaluate common network performance issues and identify the tools needed to provide Layer 3 path control that uses Cisco IOS features to control the path.
• Implement and verify a Layer 3 solution using BGP to connect an enterprise network to a service provider.

SQA Framework for CCNP Course:
The Cisco program also offers a number of shorter curricula which are related to SQA HN Units and is known as Professional Development Award in Network Technology (PDA Network Technology). These are also assessed by means of restricted response questions and practical labs and so can give credit transfer to complete units. The total credit of 64 can be achieved on passing SQA exams successfully at no additional cost..
