Cisco ROUTE 1.0: Routing Services for Converged Networks

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


The convergence of voice, video, and data has not only changed the conceptual network models but has also affected the way that networks support services and applications. Planning routing services to support requirements requires an understanding of the Cisco Enterprise Architectures and how they align with the traditional three-layer hierarchical network model. Understanding of the network traffic moving throughout the architecture is also important. To create an implementation plan, you must have detailed network information, tools, resources, and a work plan. By selecting the proper tools and resources, as well as planning your work, you can make implementation of the network faster, more cost-effective, and capable of meeting high industry standards.
This course examines the Cisco Enterprise Composite Network Model and discusses the traffic patterns in converged networks. It also introduces the Cisco vision of the future of the Intelligent Information Network (IIN) and the Cisco Service Oriented Network Architecture (Cisco SONA). Cisco conceptual models and architectures for converged networks, as well as how to build an implementation plan are also covered.
