Description

The BSCI (Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks) exam replaces the CCNP Routing exam and is one of four exams required to achieve each of these professional-level Cisco certifications: CCNP (networking), CCDP (design), and CCIP (internetworking). The BSCI exam tests candidates on the core abilities of networking professionals, including understanding and effectively applying routing principles; working with IP addresses; configuring OSPF, IS-IS, EIGRP, BGP; and optimizing routing traffic. CCNP BSCI Exam Certification Guide is a comprehensive exam self-study tool for the CCNP/CCDP/CCIP #640-901 BSCI exam, which evaluates a networkers ability to build scalable, routed Cisco internetworks. This book, updated with more than 100 pages of IS-IS protocol coverage, addresses all of the major topics on the most recent BSCI #640-901 exam. This guide enables readers to master the concepts and technologies upon which they will be tested, including extending IP addresses, routing principles, scalable routing protocols, managing traffic and access, and optimizing scalable internetworks. CCNP candidates will seek out CCNP BSCI Exam Certification Guide as timely and expert late-stage exam preparation tool and useful post-exam reference.
