During this 5-day training course, students will gain a rich experience with the Cisco ASR 9000 routers with service aggregation running on the Cisco IOS XR operating system. Attenders of the training will understand the hardware capabilities of routers with service aggregation, as well as analyze the operation of the Cisco IOS XR software modules. At the end of the training, students will be able to configure security mechanisms embedded in Cisco IOS XR software, work with dynamic routing protocols, implement multicast services, support and configure Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) services.
In addition to technical lectures there are practical exercises in the course.
This training will be useful for technical specialists of system integrators as well as network administrators and network engineers who work with Cisco ASR 9000.
Expected students’ skills and knowledge
To complete this training, students need to:
- Have a practical experience with Cisco routers;
- have a practical experience of configuring routing;
- understand how a switching works at the data link layer;
- have an experience with multicast and MPLS services;
- understand basic security mechanisms (especially authentication and authorization processes).
