A key goal of the course is to train network administrators to implement a routed network that may feature an increasing number of routers/sites and guarantee a substantial redesign for the routing infrastructure is never required. Due to the critical nature of this content, Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks is a prerequisite for many other advanced Cisco courses and is considered an absolute must for any individual contemplating the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) designation.


The BSCI course focuses on the technology required for enabling scalable routed networks. To fully benefit from this course, the student must be familiar with general networking concepts and have Cisco router operation and configuration experience. In addition, the course requires an understanding of TCP/IP and routing protocols, standard and extended access lists, PPP configuration over serial links, and Frame Relay operation and configuration on interfaces and sub-interfaces. Successful completion of Introduction to Cisco Networking Technologies (or equivalent experience) is strongly recommended.
