CRS-1 - Cisco CRS-1 Essentials
Learn the features and functions of the CRS-1 platform.
The course introduces you to the Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS) platform and its features and functions and then builds on that information by strengthening your understanding of the platform. You will learn both technology and features of certain elements of the platform in order to build your understanding of the benefits of choosing the CRS. Most of the course is specifically designed with clear, task-oriented, specific objectives built around job functions. You will also use Route Policy Language (RPL) to deploy large-scale routing configurations and perform basic troubleshooting. Review questions and lab exercises are intended to demonstrate your ability to use the knowledge and skills gained during this course to perform measurable tasks.
Note: You are required to bring your own laptop and Ethernet cable to class.
