ICND2 2.0: Implementing an EIGRP Based Solution

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


EIGRP is an advanced distance vector routing protocol that was developed by Cisco. EIGRP is suited for many different topologies and media. In a well-designed network, EIGRP scales well and provides quick convergence times with minimal overhead. EIGRP is a popular choice for a routing protocol on Cisco devices. This course describes how to configure and monitor EIGRP.
EIGRP is one of the routing protocols that is commonly used in large enterprise networks. Troubleshooting problems related to the exchange of routing information is one of the most essential skills for a network engineer who is involved in the implementation and maintenance of large routed enterprise networks that use EIGRP as the IGP. This course provides the troubleshooting flow and the Cisco IOS commands that you can use to gather information from the EIGRP data structures and routing processes.
Although proprietary to Cisco, EIGRP is widely used. Supporting IPv6 is important for the continued success of EIGRP. This course concludes with describing Cisco EIGRP support for IPv6, including its operation, configuration, and verification.

Target Audience

Anyone wishing to obtain Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) 200-120 certification that validates the knowledge and skills required to install, operate, and troubleshoot a medium-sized network, including connecting to a WAN and implementing network security. Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 (200-101 ICND2) is an essential course for students preparing for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification or the ICND2 certification. Students pursuing the CCNA Routing and Switching certification should attend parts 1 & 2 of the ICND course. Network administrators, network engineers, network managers, network designers, and project managers. Familiarity with network fundamentals, implementing local-area networks, internet connectivity, managing network device security, implementing WAN connectivity and basic IPv6 connectivity is recommended.
