Cisco ROUTE 1.0: Configuring and Verifying Route Redistribution

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Routing updates compete with user data for bandwidth and router resources, yet routing updates are critical because they carry the information that routers need to make sound routing decisions. To ensure that a network operates efficiently, you must know how to control and tune routing updates. Since there is no one type of route filter that is appropriate for every situation, the more techniques that you have at your disposal, the better your chance of having a smooth, well-run network.
Simple routing protocols work well for simple networks, but as networks grow and become more complex, it may be necessary to change routing protocols. It is important to understand how to exchange routing information between these routing protocols, and how Cisco routers operate in an environment with multiple routing protocols. Before configuring the exchange of routing information between routing protocols, you must understand the procedures for and requirements of each routing protocol as redistribution must be configured correctly for each routing protocol to obtain proper results.
This course discusses why it is necessary to manipulate routing information. The implementation of redistribution in a multiprotocol network using Cisco IOS features, according to a given network design and set of requirements, is a primary learning objective of this course. Prefix lists, distribution lists, and route maps are described, and how to control routing traffic with configuration and verification steps are also covered.
