Course CIS 271 - Cisco II

Course Description:

Routing Protocols and Concepts is the second of the four CCNA courses leading to the Cisco Certificated Network Associate (CCNA) certification. The primary focus of this course is on routing and routing protocols. The goal is to develop an understanding of how a router learns about remote networks and determines the best path to those networks. This course includes both static routing and dynamic routing protocols. By examining multiple routing protocols, you will gain a better understanding of each of the individual routing protocols and a better perspective of routing in general. Learning the configuration of routing protocols is fairly simple. Developing an understanding of the routing concepts themselves is more difficult, yet is critical for implementing, verifying, and troubleshooting routing operations.

Each static routing and dynamic routing protocol chapter uses a single topology throughout that chapter. You will be using that topology to configure, verify, and troubleshoot the routing operations discussed in the chapter. The labs and Packet Tracer activities used in this course are designed to help you develop an understanding of how to configure routing operations while reinforcing the concepts learned in each chapter.

Course Learning Objectives:

Upon Completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Use acquired skills and knowledge to plan, design, implement and troubleshoot LAN/WAN logical and physical data communication topologies.
  • Document procedures employed in planning, designing, implementing and troubleshooting data communication topologies.
  • Collaborate with team members in planning, designing, implementing and troubleshooting data communication topologies.
  • Identify key issues with routing and the IOS (Internetworking Operating System).
  • Identify how routers relate to WANS (Wide Area Networks) and practical application of IOS commands.
  • Become engaged in changes in the field of networking requiring a greater emphasis on practical use of IOS commands in Challenge Labs.
  • Participate in activities that demonstrate compliance with more certification standards.  (Including but not limited CCNA Certification Exam and Comp TIA Net+ Certification Exam).
  • Perform a complete router configuration in Challenge Labs.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of and experience with routing theory and routing protocols.
  • Master ALL IOS commands.
  • Participate in a culminating experience using the IOS in a team-troubleshooting context.

Course Learning Outcomes:

The student will be able to configure and manage routers and subnets utilizing TCP/IP protocol and routing protocol RIP, RIPv2, EIGRP and OSPF; backup and restore router configurations; upgrade router operating systems; create and configure routers to manage subnets; and install security measures on routers.
