This video course contains over 50 hours of routing and switching protocols at the professional level including EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, IPv6, 802.1s MST, Private VLANs, and many other Routing and Switching features. Includes new topics for the most current v2.0 Blueprint!
The CCNP TSHOOT exam is probably the most feared of the three CCNP exams and typically, the last exam a learner will attempt in the CCNP exam series. In this session, INE instructor Keith Bogart will guide you through strategies to prepare for this exam…and strategies for effectively using your time while taking the exam.
The CCNP R&S online course assumes that learners have already completed INE’s CCNP Routing-and-Switching video series. The course will consist of verbal explanations of the operations of networking protocols and their interactions through the use of lab demonstrations. Lab topologies will be designed, explaining the objective for each design, and then built from scratch by the instructor. During the process, the instructor will intentionally demonstrate the effects of misconfigurations and hardware failures.
This course, taught by bestselling author and trainer Robert Shimonski, is designed to provide network administrators with the practical skills needed to solve problems, analyze data, view the inner workings of packets, and perform advanced configurations to solve tough issues.
This Wireshark Advanced Technologies course, taught by bestselling author and trainer Robert Shimonski, features nearly 11 hours of training and is designed to provide network administrators with the practical skills needed to solve problems, analyze data, view the inner workings of packets, and perform advanced configurations to solve tough issues. In this course, Rob covers more advanced troubleshooting techniques, how to use Wireshark with Cisco networking equipment, and continues to prep you for the Wireshark Certified Network Analyst (WCNA) certification.
This course is designed specifically to introduce both new and experienced professional network engineers to Bash shell scripting on the Linux operating system. The course picks up where Linux Fundamentals for Network Engineers left off and takes a deeper dive into the concepts and constructs of Bash shell programming, as well as how to leverage powerful Linux tools like awk/nawk/gawk, sed, grep/egrep, and Expect. Real-world examples demonstrate the incredible power of the Bash shell as a scripting language.
This course provides an introduction to programming methods and tools using Java. It introduces core programming concepts, core principles of writing in an object-oriented language, and the software development lifecycle at a very high level. Examples focus on writing applications for dynamically configurable network hardware and include connecting to devices, classifying and filtering traffic, and logging. This course is based on Java 1.7.0.
This course is designed specifically to introduce both new and experienced professional network engineers to the Linux operating system and environment. The course begins with a comprehensive overview of Linux and quickly dives into the fundamentals of the CLI with real-world examples that demonstrate critical Linux concepts like the Bash shell interactive user interface, utilities, and the hierarchical Linux file system structure. With that solid foundation established, we progress to system and file security, user interface customization with the Bash shell, file editing, and system and network administration tasks, and take a brief look at the power of Bash shell scripting and how it can be leveraged from a network administrator perspective. This course will fully prepare attendees to continue on to the Shell Scripting Fundamentals for Network Engineers course.
Vagrant is an automation tool for building development environments and simplifying workflow that helps reduce setup time and allows you to virtualize configurations for various projects. This course, featuring nearly 5 hours of instruction, provides an introduction to Vagrant and its benefits, as well as an overview of how Vagrant works. We will also explore some common CLI commands, set up virtual machines to provision Vagrantfiles, and learn about provisioning through Shell, Puppet, Ansible, and Salt—as well as KVM, EC-2, and VMware.
This course is intended for network engineers who want to use automation to simplify and streamline management of their environment but are unfamiliar with scripting on networking platforms. The topics covered in this class can be applied across all vendors because the TCL and Expect languages are not platform-specific. Using TCL/Expect along with regular expressions, you will find that many tasks that would have previously taken hours can be done in a matter of minutes!
Ansible is quickly becoming the automation tool of choice for networking. Unlike other automation framework such as Puppet and Chef, it does not require agents to be installed on the device to work. But how does the network engineer go from Ansible zero to one? This course aims to demystifying Ansible and get you up and running.
This course will provide a gentle introduction to programming concepts and will cover the benefits of learning how to program, why Python is a great language to learn, and the software development lifecycle at a very high level. The course will also cover a brief history of past methods of automated interactions with network hardware, and compare those methods with more modern methods available today, such as NETCONF as well as embedded Python interpreters in network hardware operating systems. This course is based on Python Release 2.7.
This course is intended for network engineering professionals who want to take their creative thought processes to the next level by writing code. Whether it’s freeing up time at work by automating simple operational tasks or developing a complete framework for shifting traffic off of routers during scheduled changes, programming is an invaluable skill from which any network engineer will gain immediate returns. This course will teach students how to write Python by developing a complete command-line application that will regularly retrieve device configurations, check code in to a version control system, and receive configuration policy violation reports via email. This course is based on Python Release 2.7.

You’ve watched the videos. You’ve read the books. Now you’re wondering how much information you’ve actually retained. Test preparation is a multifaceted process that should include video training, hands-on lab practice, reading books, whitepapers, study guides, and—perhaps most importantly—frequent and repeated practice. INE is pleased to offer a CCNP ROUTE certification practice exam to help make your test-preparation process complete. Our CCNP ROUTE Practice Exam consists of approximately 50 multiple-choice questions, randomly pulled from a larger pool of questions, based on the topics in the CCNP 300-101 Exam Topics blueprint. These questions will test your knowledge across a broad spectrum of CCNP ROUTE technologies. The practice exam includes frequent screenshots of router console output, topology diagrams, and debugging output, as well as video walkthroughs of each question that explain each answer in detail.
This Exam consists of approximately 60 multiple-choice questions based on the topics in the CCNP SWITCH 300-115 Exam Topics blueprint. These questions will test your knowledge across a broad spectrum of technologies included in the actual CCNP SWITCH 300-115 exam. This exam is timed, and you will have 90 minutes to complete it. Once time has expired, the practice exam will end and you will be shown the results of your attempt. You will be able to review each question in the exam and compare your submitted answers to the correct ones. Many of the answers also contain a recorded solutions video, providing a detailed explanation about the correct answer(s).
