CIERS2 teaches students how to use an expert-level problem-solving process including the Options Analysis method to support complex network technologies and topologies. This course is part of a blended learning curriculum that supports expert-level preparation in routing and switching. This course has been updated to reflect the recent changes in the Cisco CCIE R&S lab that is implemented in the version 5 blueprint.
It is strongly recommended that students have successfully completed CIERS1 and are very familiar with those topics prior to enrolling in CIERS2. Students should also be able to demonstrate advanced-level knowledge and skills that are equivalent to the following from both configuration and troubleshooting perspectives: ::Perform expert-level tasks involving WAN technologies and switched Ethernet networks ::Perform expert-level tasks involving Routing Information Protocol version 2 (RIPv2), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), and Open Shortest Path First (OSFP) ::Perform expert-level task for route redistribution ::Perform expert-level tasks for Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) ::Perform expert-level tasks for IPv4 multicast ::Perform expert-level tasks for IPv6 unicast and multicast connectivity ::Perform expert-level tasks for router quality of service (QoS) using the Modular QoS CLI (MQC) ::Successful completion of ROUTE, SWITCH, and TSHOOT ::Successful completion of QoS, BGP, SPROUTE, and SPADVROUTE
5 Days/Lecture & Lab
The primary audience for this course is network engineers that need to be able to use an expert-level problem-solving process including the Options Analysis method to support complex network technologies and topologies when both configuring and troubleshooting an internetwork. The secondary audience for this course is network designers that design and support complex network technologies and topologies.
