CCIE-level Cisco routing and switching guide for every CCNPPreparing for the CCIE Routing and Switching lab exam typically involves deep and lengthy study. But if you already possess the Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification, you already know much of what you'll need to succeed on CCIE's labs. This book will help you quickly bridge your remaining knowledge gaps and make the most of everything you already know.CCIE Routing and Switching v5.1 Foundations addresses every segment of the CCIE R&S Version 5 blueprint, helping you focus your study where it will do the most good: intense hands-on practice to deepen your current knowledge and thorough explanations of theoretical topics you haven't yet encountered.Based on the author's industry-recognized CCIE prep classes, it includes 40+ detailed labs for real gear and platform emulators; structured illustrations of protocol and feature operation; and topic-specific labs to drive the theory home. It includes a full lab walkthrough of a complex configuration reflective of the actual CCIE-ensuring that you thoroughly understand the technologies and interactions you're reading about.Discover the physical topology for any network deploymentMaster Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) foundations and advanced featuresDeploy and optimize PPP and use its full set of capabilitiesImplement Dynamic Multipoint VPNs (DMVPNs) from start to finishUse IP Prefix lists in prefix filtration, packet filtering, and other applicationsHandle any RIPv2 deployment scenario n Implement EIGRP, including classical and named operation modes and interoperationUse advanced OSPF techniques, including route filtration, LSA operation, stub configurations, and update filteringUnderstand what happens when you perform redistribution, and manage problematic scenariosManage complex BGP capabilities, including Adjacency State MachineOperate IPv6 in complex network environments, including DMVPNFocus on QoS mechanisms that CCIE still covers, including traffic marking, classification, policing, and shapingDeploy IPsec VPN solutions including GRE/IPSec tunnel mode, multi-site VPN technologies, and their encryptionImplement multicasting in environments requiring end-to-end IPv4 and IPv6 transportAddress operational and deployment issues involving MPLS VPNv4 tunnelsshow more
