Cisco CCNP R&S: ROUTE online training course will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to plan, implement, and monitor a scalable routed network. Students will focus on routing protocols for both IPv4 and IPv6: EIGRP and OSPF for an enterprise and BGP for enterprise Internet connectivity. Students will also learn how to redistribute routes, implement path control, and secure Cisco routers.

Exam Number: 300-101 ROUTE

Who Should Attend This Course

This course is recommended for network engineers and technicians, support engineers, systems engineers, network analysts, senior network administrators or anyone involved in planning, implementing, verifying, and troubleshooting routing protocols in enterprise networks. This is also intended for students who are looking for real-world routing & switching knowledge, and those that are considering obtaining the  Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Routing and Switching certification. This online training course’s discussion of routing could also benefit early CCIE Routing and Switching candidates.

Passing this exam will also refresh the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching certification, which expires after three years.


  • Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching certification is highly recommended
  • Knowledge of the following:
    • Configure network fundamentals, including the ability to establish Internet, LAN, and WAN connectivity using both IPv4 and IPv6
    • Operate and support a medium-sized LAN that has multiple switches, including VLANs, trunking, and spanning tree functionality
    • Troubleshoot IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity issues
    • Configure and troubleshoot EIGRP and OSPF, for both IPv4 and IPv6
    • Configure devices for SNMP, Syslog, and NetFlow
    • Manage network device security, Cisco device configurations, Cisco IOS images, and licenses. Familiarity with internetworking technologies and the ability to perform basic router configuration
