Cisco ROUTE 2.0: Configuring Routing Protocol Redistribution

Target Audience
Expected Duration
Lesson Objectives
Course Number
Expertise Level

Simple routing protocols work well for simple networks, but as networks grow and become more complex, it may be necessary to change the routing protocols. Often, the transition between routing protocols takes place gradually, so there are multiple routing protocols that are operating in the network for variable lengths of time. This course describes how these problems can be resolved by redistribution from one routing protocol to another. You will also learn how Cisco routers make route selections when multiple protocols are active in the network.

Target Audience
Anyone wishing to obtain real-world routing knowledge, and those that are considering CCNP and CCIP certification. This learning path's discussion of routing could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates. Students completing the ROUTE 2.0 learning path should have a solid foundation in routing fundamentals, Cisco IOS basics, and Cisco routing basics. Attending the ICND1 and ICND2 classes or having the CCNA certification will fulfill these expectations.
