ETRO 245: Advanced Routing

Credits 3 Class Hours6 lecture/lab

The purpose of this course is to develop the knowledge and skills needed to manage Internet Protocol (IP)

traffic and access; understand scalable internetworks; configure advanced routing protocols including Border Gateway Protocol [BGP], Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol [EIGRP], and Open Shortest Path First [OSPF]; configuration of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6); and configuration of secure routing solutions to support branch offices and mobile workers.

Comprehensive labs emphasize hands- on learning and practice to reinforce configuration skills.


May be repeated for a maximum of 6 credits.


"C" or higher in ETRO 140B, ETRO 140C, ETRO 240B, and ETRO 240C or valid CCNA certification, or approval of instructor.
