An intensive hands on IP routing course leading to LINX Accredited Internet Technician stage 2 focusing on routing in an IP environment. The course concentrates on OSPF and IS-IS but also covers STP and VLANS. Hands on sessions are used to reinforce the theory rather than teach specific manufacturer equipment.

TCP/IP Foundation for engineers

By the end of the course delegates will be able to:

  • Calculate subnet numbers in seconds.
  • Configure and troubleshoot static routes.
  • Explain how OSPF works.
  • Build resilient networks with VRRP and OSPF.
  • Implement and troubleshoot OSPF, IS-IS and VLANS.
  • Evaluate and choose appropriate routing protocols for particular scenarios.
