CCNP Enterprise Advanced Routing ENARSI 300-410 Crash Course

Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services

Anthony Sequeira

The Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services live training sessions explore the topics required for the popular CCNP Enterprise certification. This is one of the available concentration exams for the CCNP Enterprise certification. The topics covered in this course are not just critical for success in the Cisco Certification space but are also core topics for network engineers that want to be able to implement and support enterprise-scale network topologies.

What you'll learn-and how you can apply it

  • Students will learn to perform advanced implementations and troubleshooting of such critical Layer 3 technologies as OSPF, EIGRP, and BGP.
  • Students will be able to configure modern VPN technologies including Layer 3 MPLS VPNs and DMVPN.
  • Students will also learn about important troubleshooting techniques for infrastructure security technologies such as AAA, router security services, and IPv6 security services.
  • Students will also learn about important troubleshooting techniques for infrastructure services including DHCP, SNMP, NetFlow, and many more.

This training course is for you because...

  • This training is targeted at those network engineers wanting to achieve their CCNP Enterprise or Cisco Certified Specialist - Enterprise Advanced Infrastructure Implementation certifications from Cisco Systems.
  • This training is also targeted at those that do not require certification in these areas but that want to focus on the real-world skills required to support scalable and reliable enterprise network infrastructures that include the latest highly-regarded technologies.

Prerequisites

Students should possess the knowledge covered in the CCNA and CCNP Enterprise core material. This includes a knowledge of Layer 2, Layer 3, IP Services, and network programmability basics as well as automation.

Recommended Preparation

Recommended Follow-up

  • Students should consider exploring the CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure certification following the completion of this course.
