Description

The ROUTE course is designed to help students advance their knowledge and skills and work independently on complex network solutions. Students will plan, configure and verify the implementation of secure enterprise LAN and WAN routing solutions using a range of routing protocols. Configuration of solutions to support branch offices and mobile workers will be presented. This course uses the official Cisco Academy CCNP ROUTE curriculum and is designed to provide preparation for the CCNP ROUTE certification exam.
