Cisco ROUTE 2.0: VPN Technologies
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
An IP Security (IPsec) VPN uses the Internet to connect branch offices, remote employees, and business partners to the resources of your company, and VPNs are an integral part of any security architecture. Providing confidentiality, integrity, and endpoint authentication, VPNs are ubiquitous and provide data loss prevention mechanisms for data that is in transit at multiple levels. In this course, you will learn about the benefits of VPN implementation and configuration.
GRE is a tunneling protocol that can encapsulate a wide variety of protocol packet types inside IP tunnels, creating a virtual point-to-point link to Cisco routers at remote points over an IP internetwork. By connecting multiprotocol subnet in a single-protocol backbone environment, IP tunneling using GRE enables network expansion across a single-protocol backbone environment. After completing this course you will be able to describe GRE tunneling, as well as how to configure, scale, and verify a GRE tunnel.
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.
