Cisco CCNP Enterprise Course

The ENARSI Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services course is part of the Cisco CCNP Enterprise pathway. The course focuses on the configuration and optimization of advanced routing and service technologies in Cisco Enterprise network environments. The objectives of the ENARSI course include understanding and implementing advanced routing protocols such as OSPF, EIGRP, and BGP; configuring and optimizing network services like QoS, multicast, VPN, and DMVPN; implementing advanced security solutions such as role-based access and Cisco TrustSec; designing and implementing IPv6 networks and migrating from IPv4 to IPv6; troubleshooting and optimizing the performance of Cisco Enterprise networks using monitoring and analysis tools; understanding automation and programmability technologies like Cisco DNA Center and automation with Python; and, finally, integrating and configuring advanced wireless infrastructure solutions. The Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI) course prepares participants for the 300-410 exam.

Course Objectives

The main objectives of the Implementing Cisco Enterprise Advanced Routing and Services (ENARSI) Course are:

  1. Implement EIGRP: Learn to configure and optimize EIGRP for IPv4/IPv6.
  2. Troubleshoot EIGRP: Acquire skills to diagnose EIGRP issues.
  3. Master OSPF: Understand and configure OSPF for IPv4/IPv6.
  4. Optimize OSPF: Learn route summarization and special area configuration.
  5. Troubleshoot OSPF: Gain skills in diagnosing OSPF problems.
  6. Route Redistribution: Implement routing between different protocols.
  7. Learn BGP: Understand BGP basics and configuration.
  8. Path Control: Implement Policy-Based Routing and BFD.
  9. Explore MPLS: Learn MPLS basics and VPN architecture.
  10. Router Security: Secure Cisco routers using ACLs and other features.

Upon completion of the course, individuals should be able to take Exam 350-410 ENARSI to achieve a CCNP Enterprise Certification.
