Course Overview

Course Duration: 5 Days.
Building Core Networks with OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and MPLS Bootcamp (BCN) - is a powerful hands-on course that provides you with the required knowledge and skills to design, deploy, operate, and maintain an Internet service provider (ISP) backbone network.
Building Core Networks with OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and MPLS Bootcamp (BCN) is a powerful hands-on course that provides you with the required knowledge and skills to design, deploy, operate, and maintain an Internet service provider (ISP) backbone network. You will learn the primary principles of the routing protocols that are used in very large networks. Hands-on labs reinforce the lecture materials to make sure that you have the working skills to affect the networks you support.
BCN is offered in a traditional classroom or as an interactive online training delivered over Cisco® WebEx®. Both versions are led by the same knowledgeable instructors. The course materials are the same (although minor changes are made to accommodate the online environment), and both versions have the same hands-on labs. BCN Online offers the same learning experience as the traditional version with the added benefit of remote access.

Who Should Attend

  • Network professionals
  • Designers
  • Implementers

Course Content

  • Building Core Networks with OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and MPLS Bootcamp (BCN) is a powerful hands-on course that provides you with the required knowledge and skills to design, deploy, operate, and maintain an Internet service provider (ISP) backbone network. You will learn the primary principles of the routing protocols that are used in very large networks. Hands-on labs reinforce the lecture materials to make sure that you have the working skills to affect the networks you support. This latest version of BCN is a major rework of the course. Featuring a completely new lab and topology, your learning will be on more advanced hardware and software. In addition to more content, the course has been enhanced to include the latest Cisco IOS®Software features. The lab network now includes supporting infrastructure to provide a more real-world environment.
