In this course, you will focus on using Cisco routers that are typically found in the service provider network. You will cover various technologies that are used to offer different services to customers, and you'll learn to configure, verify, and troubleshoot advanced Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) configuration, IP multicasting, and IPv6 transition mechanisms. Through hands-on labs, you will gain practical skills deploying Cisco IOS/IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support service provider network.

This course helps you prepare for Exam 642-885 SPADVROUTE, needed for CCNP Service Provider certification.
