ITI522 Building Scalable Internetworks (8)

This subject will provide students with the important knowledge and skills necessary to use advanced IP addressing and routing in implementing scalability for Cisco routers connected to LANs and WANs. The subject covers topics on advanced IP addressing, routing principles, configuring EIGRP, configuring the open shortest path first protocol, configuring IS-IS, manipulating routing updates and configuring basic BGP. The subject starts with an introduction to advanced IP addressing, goes on to OSPF discussions and how to design, implement and configure the routers, and ends with topics on troubleshooting.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this subject, students should:

- be able to describe advanced IP addressing to include variable-length subnet mask (VLSM), route summarization, classless interdomain routing (CIDR), basic IP version 6 (IPv6), and network address translation (NAT) with route maps;
- be able to identify advanced IP routing principles including static and dynamic routing characteristics and the concepts of classless routing and network boundary summarization;
- be able to configure routing information protocol version 2 (RIPv2) for a scalable network;
- be able to configure enhanced interior gateway routing protocol (EIGRP) for a scalable network;
- be able to configure open shortest path first (OSPF) for a scalable multi area network;
- be able to configure intermediate system-to-intermediate system (IS-IS) for a scalable multi area network;
- be able to manipulate routing updates and packet flow using redistribution, distribution lists, administrative distance, route maps and policy-based routing; and
- be able to configure basic border gateway protocol (BGP) for internal and external connections to include path selection process, default behavior of BGP, and multihoming.
