Cisco ROUTE 2.0: Path Control Implementation
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
Given that bandwidth of modern networks is continually increasing at a steady rate, packet switching efficiency is important. As a network administrator, you must understand packet switching methods and their evolution. Cisco Express Forwarding is the state-of-the-art switching method, and the most commonly used method. Therefore, you must be familiar with its operations so that you can effectively maintain and troubleshoot your network. In IP networks, packets are routed by destination address. Sometimes, especially in a complex, highly redundant network, this approach is not flexible enough. You may want to optimize the traffic path for some specific application, or control the traffic path based on the network performance. You can accomplish all this with PBR and IP SLA features.
This course describe how to verify Cisco Express Forwarding operation and implement path control using PBR and IP SLA.
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.
