        only if you go beyone CCNA level

        because there isn’t much about routing in Cisco 1 thru 4.

        And if you are not using it in the real world, most of it is in one ear and out the other because they throw so much at you, so fast.

          but wanted to know about OSPF, BGP, EIGRP, ISIS, etc and those concepts are covered in CCNA. Need a brush up? I would say go over the stuff in the CCNA and Cisco Academy is the place for that. They even have Video shows on it.

          JD is right, if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it…..

      If you really want to polish your routing skills, you should invest in some gear. You can generally find used Cisco gear on EBay. I would recommend putting a small together for yourself. If you got 3 or so routers, and a switch or two, it will help immensely.
      You will need to make sure you look for IOS versions that are capable of the routing protocols you wish to investigate.

        find an esim lab. the better ones, you can’t tell that you aren’t in a real router.

        having fun changing our network over to MPLS. Would help if the vendor would set the lines up properly….. :0

          I agree about the ELabs. Some of them are pretty good. Good luck with the MPLS implementation. Does your provider support multicast inherent? Or do you have to do a full GRE mesh? I hope it’s not the latter, that would be a major PITA to administer.
