IP Routing (e)
- Course Length:
- 1 hour of eLearning
As the communications industry transitions to wireless and wireline converged networks to support voice, video, data and mobile services over IP, a solid understanding of IP and its role in networking is essential. IP is to data transfer as a dial tone is to a wireline telephone. A fundamental knowledge of IPv4 and IPv6 networking along with use of routing is a must for all telecom professionals. A solid foundation in IP and routing has become a basic job requirement in the carrier world. Understanding of IP routing protocols is an important part of building this foundation. Starting with a basic definition, the course provides a focused base level introduction to the fundamentals of IP routing and associated protocols like OSPF, BGP, and VRRP. It is a modular introductory course only on IP routing as part of the overall eLearning IP fundamentals curriculum.
This course is intended for those seeking a basic level introduction to IP routing and the common associated protocols.
After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Define the differences between IP routing and forwarding
• Distinguish between Interior Gateway Protocols and Exterior Gateway Protocols and give examples of each
• Explain Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and how it is used
• List the main types of Link State Advertisements in OSPF
• Describe Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and how it is used
• Show how route reflectors simplify network configuration and reduce routing overhead
• Explain how PING can be used to verify end-to-end connectivity in an IP Network
• Describe how Traceroute can be used to track down routing errors in a network
