Course Content
Building Core Networks with OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and MPLS Bootcamp (BCN) is a powerful hands-on course that provides you with the required knowledge and skills to design, deploy, operate, and maintain an Internet service provider (ISP) backbone network. You will learn the primary principles of the routing protocols that are used in very large networks. Hands-on labs reinforce the lecture materials to make sure that you have the working skills to affect the networks you support. This latest version of BCN is a major rework of the course. Featuring a completely new lab and topology, your learning will be on more advanced hardware and software. In addition to more content, the course has been enhanced to include the latest Cisco IOS®Software features. The lab network now includes supporting infrastructure to provide a more real-world environment.

    Course Objectives

    Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

    • Identify the critical factors for availability, scalability, and manageability
    • Implement an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP, either OSPF or IS-IS) into a large-scale hierarchical network using best current practices for scalability
    • Implement BGP into a large-scale hierarchical network using best practices for scalability
    • Control routing policy by influencing the BGP path selection process using route maps, prefix lists, and community strings
    • Implement multihoming strategies using multiexit discriminators (MEDs) and local preference
    • Implement and verify MPLS functionality in a large-scale network
    • Implement and verify MPLS VPN connectivity in intra-autonomous-system environments
    • Implement and verify MPLS traffic engineering practices
    • Implement Layer 2 VPNs using Any Transport over MPLS (AToM)
