This course will teach a number of the most commonly implemented enterprise routing protocols including EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP and how they relate to Cisco network design recommendations.
Many engineers work their whole careers without ever really looking under the hood to understand why a network was designed the way it was. Some of this is because their day to day duties don't require this knowledge and some of this is because an engineer chooses to focus their knowledge on becoming exceptional operational engineers. This course, Enterprise IP Routing Design for CCDA DESGN (200-310), will take a closer look at the routing protocols that are commonly implemented in Enterprise networks, specifically covering EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS and BGP. You'll begin with a review the basics of routing protocols including the different types and behaviors that are common between them. You'll first learn about EIGRP, including a review of the basic EIGRP concepts including neighborships, metrics, the topology table, summarization, and stub. Next, you'll explore IS-IS, including a review of the basic IS-IS concepts including neighborships, metrics, and areas. Finally, you'll get to learn about BGP, which includes a review of the basic BGP concepts including neighborships or peerings, and path selection. When you are finished with this course, you'll have a firm base of understanding of the different routing protocols that are commonly implemented in an enterprise environment. Welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Sean Wilkins, and I am a network engineer, author, and technical editor at infoDispersion. I'm excited to welcome you to my course, Enterprise IP Routing Design for CCDA DESGN. This course is one of many courses that are being introduced into the Pluralsight library to cover networking design. This course specifically is targeted on the common routing protocols that are implemented on enterprise networks, as well as an overview of how they compare against each other. The modules that we will cover include common IPv4 and IPv6 routing concepts, including the different types and behaviors that are common between routing protocols. Enterprise EIGRP design, including neighborships, metrics, and the topology table. Enterprise OSPF design, including neighborships, metrics, areas, and nulling state database. Enterprise IS-IS design, including neighborships, metrics, and areas. And enterprise BGP design, including peerings, attributes, and path selection. By the end of this course, you will have a firm base of understanding of the different routing protocols that are commonly implemented in an enterprise environment. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with networking fundamentals, including IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, and an understanding of how networking devices interconnect together. After viewing this course, you should feel comfortable diving into other networking design courses on Campus Edge design, Enterprise Data Center design, Enterprise Campus design, and Enterprise IP and IPv6 addressing design. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn networking design with the Enterprise IP Routing Design for CCDA DESGN course at Pluralsight.
