There is a huge gap of Service Provider professionals on the market, and this can be your starting point in the Service Provider world, a complex but fun and challenging track. This course will help candidates obtain a deeper understanding of the technologies from the blueprint, which will tremendously help prepare for the certification exam and also for real-life deployments. Lab topologies will be designed, explaining the objective for each design, and then built from scratch by the instructor, nothing being pre-scripted, pre-tested or pre-recorded . During the process, the instructor will intentionally demonstrate the effects of misconfigurations and failures, randomly making learners think how to approach a specific problem, never seen before. You will also learn how to build a proper study and learning methodology.
You’ll be able to make the most of your training time with content that is authoritative, comprehensive and easy to follow. This video bundle offers instant download access to HD quality videos, viewable on your computer or mp4-compatible mobile device.

For those who work in the ISP world, this course will take each technology on the blueprints and broken down into technology explanation and whiteboarding to drive home the concepts followed up with CLI demo’s where applicable. For people with zero experience or understanding to being able to completely build and support an ISP environment.
This course is designed to help you understand the architecture of how to deal with internal LAN switching for both ISP customers and the ISP itself. We’ll build the Layer 2 environment from the ground up. Then once Layer 2 is in place and converged, we can then focus on getting the routing in place, we’ll focus on OSPF for the enterprise and ISIS for the ISP core. We’ll dive into Link State routing protocol fundamentals before we get into the protocols themselves. Since OSPF is more commonly found in the Enterprise, we’ll focus on getting Single Area OSPF working step by step. This will include configuration, authentication and optimizing OSPF. Then we hit ISIS, since it’s predominately found in the ISP core for its scalability, we’ll get that working step by step. This will be where we focus on ISIS on IOS XE and IOS XR. After ISIS is completely converged we will extend the OSPF routing to enable Route Redistribution between OSPF and ISIS. MPLS is the primary forwarding technology in most Service Providers, so we will take a deep look at MPLS and how it works. We’ll configure and thoroughly verify its operations. Then we’ll be onto BGP between the Enterprise and the Service Provider. We’ll then take a look at NAT and Route filtering techniques with Access Lists. IPv6 is a big topic in the ISP world, so we’ll discuss transitioning techniques for that. Then we’ll wrap up with an IOS XE and IOS XR software architecture, maintenance and configuration management.
