Syllabus for CCNP-ROUTE (CISC272) * This course will be updated fro Spring 2012


Course Description: This is an advanced course intended for networking professionals and students have completed CCNA studies or already possess their CCNA certification. This course introduces students to scaling IP addresses using VLSM, NAT, and PAT. It focuses on advanced concepts and implementation of RIPv2, EIGRP, ISIS, multi-area OSPF, and BGP. Additional topics include route filtering, route redistribution and policy routing. This course is the first semester of CCNP studies through the Cisco Networking Academy Program. Prereq. - CISC 271 or CISC 260 and 266, or a current and valid CCNA certification.

Course Objectives

The CCNP certification indicates knowledge of networking for the small office/home office (SOHO) and enterprise markets. The certification also indicates the individual has the ability to work in businesses or organizations with networks that have between 100 and 500 nodes. A CCNP certified individual can perform the following tasks:

• Implement appropriate technologies to build a scalable routed network
• Build campus networks using multilayer switching technologies
• Improve traffic flow, reliability, redundancy, and performance for campus LANs, routed and switched WANs, and remote access networks
• Create and deploy a global intranet
• Troubleshoot an environment that uses Cisco routers and switches for multiprotocol client hosts and services
• Perform entry-level tasks in the planning, design, installation, operation, and troubleshooting of Ethernet and TCP/IP networks

  The CCNP 1 course is an important step toward achieving CCNP certification.  Upon completion of this course, students will be able to perform tasks related to the following:

·        Internetwork scalability

·        Advanced IP addressing techniques

·        Routing protocol operation, configuration, and troubleshooting

·        RIP v2, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP

·        Route optimization

·        IP Multicasting

·        Configuring IPv6

Class Labs will occur after the discussion of a topic.  Additional lab time can be made available during the instructor’s office hours or via lab passes.   If you feel you need more time to complete a lab, it is your responsibility to ask for a lab pass to come in when no classes are in the room.  Some labs may be completed at home using PacketTracer 4.1. 

A Study Guide will be provided for each Chapter.  It is the student’s responsibility to complete these.  They are for YOUR benefit and will assist you when studying for the tests.  Study Guides are due on the class day FOLLOWING the test for its respective module.   THEY WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED IF LATE!  Please email completed study guides to me.  When sending include in the SUBJECT line, your last name, the course number (CISC231-01), and the Chapter or Module #.  The CD accompanying your text is an invaluable tool and can be of great assistance in completing the study guides.

Grading will be assigned approximately per the following:

                        Assignments/Labs........................................................ 20%

                        Tests (One on-line test after each chapter).................... 40%

                        Case Studies and Practical.............................               20%

                        Final Exam(1).............................................................. 20%    

With the exception of Chapter 1 test and the final exam, all tests will be taken at home on YOUR time.  They will be announced one class period ahead of time and will be active for at least 48 hours.   Each chapter test contains approximately 20 questions.  Tests may not normally be retaken.  Tests can be made up only in the event of a medical emergency directly related to the student and verified by a written doctor’s excuse.
