Deploying Cisco Service Provider Advanced Network Routing v1.2 (SPADVROUTE)

Deploying Cisco Service Provider Advanced Network Routing v1.2 (SPADVROUTE)


Duration: 5 days

Deploying Cisco Service Provider Advanced Network Routing (SPADVROUTE) v1.2 is a course that provides network engineers and technicians with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement and support a service provider network.

The course focuses on using Cisco routers that are typically found in the service provider network and on various technologies that are used to offer different services to customers. Upon completing this course learners will be able to configure, verify, and troubleshoot advanced BGP configuration, IP multicasting, and IPv6 transition mechanisms.

The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support service provider network.


Upon completing this course, you will be able to meet these objectives:

  • Configure the service provider network to support multiple BGP connections with customers and other autonomous systems
  • Describe common routing and addressing scalability issues in the service provider network
  • Describe available BGP tools and features to secure and optimize the BGP routing protocol in a service provider environment
  • Introduce IP multicast services and the technologies that are present in IP multicasting
  • Introduce PIM-SM as the most current scalable IP multicast routing protocol
  • Describe service provider IPv6 transition implementations
