Cisco ROUTE 2.0: Configuring EIGRP for IPv6 and Named EIGRP

Anyone wishing to obtain real-world routing knowledge, and those that are considering CCNP and CCIP certification. This learning path’s discussion of routing could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates. Students completing the ROUTE 2.0 learning path should have a solid foundation in routing fundamentals, Cisco IOS basics, and Cisco routing basics. Attending the ICND1 and ICND2 classes or having the CCNA certification will fulfill these expectations.

Originally created to route for IPv4, IPX, and AppleTalk, EIGRP was easily extended to advertise IPv6 routes. Although EIGRP for IPv6 shares much of the characteristics of the EIGRP for IPv4, it also has some unique specifics. One of the major differences between IPv4 and IPv6 EIGRP versions is the fact that you must explicitly enable EIGRP for IPv6 on each IPv6 enabled interface. Even though basic EIGRP configuration is pretty simple, configuring additional parameters can increase configuration complexity. Some parameters are configured in global configuration mode, other under specific interfaces. When you enable EIGRP configuration for IPv6, things can become overwhelming. You must use similar, slightly different commands and configuration procedures, to enable EIGRP for IPv6. Cisco introduced a new way of configuring EIGRP, which is called named EIGRP. It enables you to gather all EIGRP configurations in one place, using unified configuration commands for all underlying network protocols. This course begins with explaining how to configure basic EIGRP for IPv6 and optimize it with route summarization. Configuring named EIGRP completes the course.
