Cisco Addressing and Routing Solutions Mastery

  • 30m
  • 30 questions
The Cisco Addressing and Routing Solutions Mastery benchmark will measure your ability to recognize key terms and concepts related to Cisco addressing and routing solutions. You will be evaluated on troubleshooting routing, routing redistribution, summarization, EIGRP, OSPF, and BGP. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the skills related to understanding key Cisco addressing and routing solutions terminology and concepts.

Topics covered

  • configure a BGP peering
  • configure route tagging and filtering
  • describe BGP basic operation within networking
  • describe feasibility in EIGRP, including feasible distance, feasible successor, the feasible condition, and unequal cost load balancing
  • describe how loops can be addressed in complex routing redistribution scenario
  • describe how network updates are propagated on OSPF
  • describe loop prevention mechanisms that are built into routing protocols run by Cisco equipment and recognize loop prevention steps you can take with your configurations
  • describe OSPF address families for Ipv4 and Ipv6
  • describe policy-based routing, how it can be used to override the default behavior of a device, and how it can be used for custom routing actions
  • describe summarization and how it can reduce the size of routing tables, the overhead of table searches, and the size of convergence domains
  • describe the EIGRP stub feature
  • describe VFR-lite and how it can be very useful in smaller enterprises

  • recognize the formula that is used to calculate the metric for EIGRP configuration
  • recognize the purpose of administrative distance, how it can affect routing functions and how it can be used
  • recognize when to use route maps and how to use them effectively
  • select the best path using BGP attributes
