This is the Rough Cut version of the printed book.

Preparing for the CCIE Routing and Switching lab exam typically involves massive amounts of studying. But if you already possess Cisco's CCNP Routing and Switching certification, you already know much of what you'll need to succeed on CCIE's labs. This book will help you bridge the gaps in your knowledge quickly and efficiently, and make the most of everything you already know. Narbik Kocharians helps you focus your study where it will do the most good: intense hands-on practice that deepens your current knowledge, and thorough explanations of the handful of theoretical topics you haven't yet encountered.

CCIE Routing and Switching v5.1 Foundations addresses every segment of the CCIE Routing and Switching Version 5 blueprint. It concludes with a full-scale CCIE lab walkthrough that brings everything together into a single complex configuration reflective of the actual CCIE -- ensuring that you truly understand the technologies and interactions you've been reading about. Coverage includes:

  • Discovering the physical topology for any network deployment
  • Mastering STP foundations and advanced features
  • Using IP Prefix lists in prefix filtration and packet filtering
  • Implementing Dynamic Multipoint VPNs (DMVPNs) from start to finish
  • Handling any RIPv2 deployment scenario
  • Implementing EIGRP: both classical and named operation
  • Clarifying the OSPF concepts and techniques that trip up many CCIE candidates
  • Understanding exactly what happens when you perform redistribution
  • Managing complexities associated with BGP's scope and capabilities
  • Operating IPv6 in complex network environments, including DMVPN
  • Focusing on the key QoS mechanisms that CCIE still covers
  • Deploying advanced site-to-site and multi-site IPsec VPN solutions, including tunnel encryption
  • Multicasting in environments requiring end-to-end IPv4 and IPv6 transport between all devices
  • Addressing operational and deployment issues involving MPLS VPNv4 tunnels
