Deploying Cisco Service Provider Network Routing v1.2 - SPROUTE Course Outline

(5 Days)


The Deploying Cisco Service Provider Network Routing (SPROUTE) v1.2 is a five-day course that provides service provider professionals with information on the use of advanced routing in implementing scalability for Cisco routers that are connected to LANs and WANs. It is designed to help students prepare for the Cisco CCNP SP certification. The SPROUTE course is a component of the CCNP SP curriculum.
The goal is to train professionals to dramatically increase the number of routers and sites using these techniques instead of redesigning the network when additional sites or wiring configurations are added. The SPROUTE training reinforces the instruction by providing students with hands-on labs to ensure they thoroughly understand how to implement advanced routing within their networks. The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills in deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support service provider network.
