Cisco Certified Network Professional Routing and Switching
(CCNP R & S)

The Cisco Certified Network Professional Routing and Switching (CCNP R&S) certification validates knowledge and skills necessary to use advanced IP addressing and routing in implementing scalable and secure Cisco ISR routers connected to LANs and WANs. All CCNP R&S certified professionals can work collaboratively with specialists on advanced security, voice, wireless and video solutions. This certification enhances knowledge of how to design and implement medium-size networks with 100 to 500 or more nodes.

Objectives of CCNP R & S

  • To implement
    • VLANs in a network campus
    • spanning tree
    • inter-VLAN routing in a campus network
    • a highly available network
    • high-availability technologies and techniques using multilayer switches
    • security features in a switched network
  • To implement and verify
    • a redistribution solution in a multi-protocol network that uses Cisco IOS features to control path selection and provides a loop-free topology according to a given network design and requirements
    • a Layer 3 solution using BGP to connect an enterprise network to a service provider
  • To plan and document
    • the configuration and verification of routing protocols and their optimization in enterprise networks
    • the most commonly performed maintenance functions in complex enterprise networks
  • To identify the technologies, components, and metrics of EIGRP used to implement and verify EIGRP routing in diverse, large-scale internetworks based on requirements
  • To identify, analyze, and match OSPF multi area routing functions and benefits for routing efficiencies in network operations in order to implement and verify OSPF routing in a complex enterprise network
  • To evaluate common network performance issues and identify the tools needed to provide Layer 3 path control that uses Cisco IOS features to control the path
  • To analyze campus network designs
  • To integrate WLANs into a campus network
  • To develop a troubleshooting process to identify and resolve problems in complex enterprise networks
  • To select tools that best support specific troubleshooting and maintenance processes in large, complex enterprise networks
  • To practice maintenance procedures and fault resolution
  • To troubleshoot and maintain integrated, complex enterprise networks
