CCNP ROUTE is the cornerstone of the CCNP certification. Advanced routing is a critical skill for today's network administrators that work with LANs/WANs of any medium-to-large organization. In this course, we cover well known technologies such as EIGRP, BGP, OSPF, IPv6 and route redistribution.
Our goal is that you are not only able to pass the certification exam but that you gain a thorough understanding of these key technologies and protocols.
We are working right now to bring you videos of IPv6 for this exam as soon as possible.
This course comes straight out from our subscription based site: networkfaculty.com/en/

In this video we go into the operation details of the OSPF LSA 1 (router LSA) and LSA 2 (network LSA), what information they represent and contain and their impact on the general performance of the OSPF routing protocol
In this session we explore in detail the operation of the Summary LSA (Type 3), what information they represent and contain, together with the details of how OSPF routers calculate the metric.
Details on how the OSPF LSA 4 (ASBR-Summary) and LSA 5 (External) operate and what information they contain. We'll take special attention into how the calculations are made to reach external routes.
Operation of LSA Type 7 on NSSA areas. How translation is performed by the ABR's from a LSA Type 7 to a LSA type 5 and the calculations performed with the forward address to get the metric to any specific route
In this session we will see how to modify and check the cost on Cisco IOS devices for the OSPF routing protocol (interface level and global configuration)
In this session we analyze the operation of the area 0 (backbone) and regular areas, what optimization they provide and the benefit of using multiple areas
In this video we explore how stub and totally stub areas (stub no-summary) work, what OSPF LSA they filter and how OSPF provide connectivity to the routes that are lost with this LSA filtering
We explore in this session the operation of NSSA and totally NSSA areas (NSSA no-summary) what LSA types they filter, how Type 7 LSA are translated to Type 5 LSA and how routing is done within these areas
In this session we configure different stub area types of OSPF (stub, totally stub, NSSA and totally NSSA). We will observe independently the behavior of each of them and their implications.

I have a large experience in the educational sector, teaching courses of networking (CCNP, JNCIS-SP, JNCIP-SP, etc), system administration and programming.
I have more than 15 years working on the IT sector. Started at a middle level system administrator (Linux) and have worked my way up to a senior network engineer and third level support for large networks and ISP.
Currently I'm dedicated to building the best courses available on networking and virtualization for networkfaculty.com. Currently we have thousands of network engineers learning through our material, and they are constantly giving the best feedback.
Our training is not focused on teaching how to pass a examen (thats the easy part) but more on creating network and virtualization professionals.
I love Perl Programming, Linux, IPv6 and Multicast deployments. When not doing network related study/work, I like to play paintball and endurance sports training.
