EIGRP Configuration Online Training
This intermediate EIGRP Configuration training prepares network administrators to configure and manage the routers on an autonomous system running EIGRP to maximize the speed and efficiency of the network.
Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol, or EIGRP, started its life as a proprietary protocol of Cisco's. In 2013, EIGRP's functionality got converted to an open standard and it's now supported by most network hardware vendors. The EIGRP is a powerful, advanced protocol that can be used to automate the routing decisions for a network and guarantee that traffic is always sent by the most efficient route.
This EIGRP Configuration training will familiarize a network administrator with how to configure routers so that they use EIGRP and how to monitor it on a network to ensure the network's traffic is optimized.
For anyone who manages their EIGRP training, this Cisco training can be used to onboard new network administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.
EIGRP Configuration: What You Need to Know
This EIGRP Configuration training covers EIGRP topics including:
- Enabling EIGRP on routers through the command line
- Instructing routers via EIGRP to advertise their position
- Speeding network traffic and reducing latency with EIGRP
- Configuring EIGRP on autonomous systems
Who Should Take EIGRP Configuration Training?
This EIGRP Configuration training is considered associate-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for network administrators. This EIGRP skills course is designed for network administrators with three to five years of experience with EIGRP configuration methods.
New or aspiring network administrators. Learning to configure and manage EIGRP is an important step in every network administrator's career. If you're just starting out as a netadmin, you will eventually come into contact with EIGRP — you can either be caught flat-footed or prepare ahead of time with this EIGRP Configuration training. Get ahead of the game and manage your autonomous system's configurations with this training.
Experienced network administrators. If you've been working as a network administrator for several years already but you've somehow managed to avoid learning EIGRP, this training is made for you. This EIGRP Configuration training is a quick way to get hands-on practice configuring routers in virtually simulated environments. Many of the concepts of the training will be familiar and once you're done learning EIGRP, you'll be much more versatile and useful to your work center.
