Cisco ROUTE 2.0: Redistribution Using Route Maps and Tags

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.

Many IP routing challenges can be solved using route redistribution. Having a method to manipulate the redistribution process increases your options and flexibility. There is no one type of route filter that is appropriate for every situation. Therefore, the more techniques that you have at your disposal, the better your chances of solving connectivity challenges. To ensure that the network operates efficiently, you often need to control the redistribution process. By implementing filtering mechanisms, you can influence which information is redistributed between different protocols. Controlling the exchange of routing information and routing metrics manipulation enables you to ensure optimal traffic flow within the network. After completing this course, you will be able to use route maps, administrative distance, and route tags to manipulate redistribution.


Using Route Maps

  • start the course
  • identify the features of route maps
  • recognize how route maps are used
  • use route maps to control and filter routes
  • identify route map configuration tasks
  • identify the command used to set attributes for routes matched by the prefix list
  • set the metric type for a matched route in a route map
  • verify a route map on a Cisco router
  • configure a route map to match ACL criteria
  • identify redistribution design considerations
  • determine what a given route-map will accomplish given a scenario

Administrative Distance and Route Tags

  • recognize how to improve optimal routing with administrative distance
  • recognize issues that can occur when modifying an administrative distance
  • identify the different ways in which the AD can be modified for different routing protocols
  • modify the administrative distance of internal and external EIGRP routes
  • recognize how routing loops can be avoided when using two-way multipoint redistribution
  • configure a route map with a route tag
  • match a configured route with a tag
  • identify caveats when using route redistribution

Practice: Manipulating Redistribution

  • implement route redistribution manipulation in a given scenario
