Nokia Interior Routing Protocols

The Nokia Interior Routing Protocols course examines the operation and use of standards-based routing protocols, such as Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS). The course analyzes and compares these routing protocols, including IPv6, for their successful implementation in large-scale, service-oriented networks. Upon completion of this course, students will explain the operation of IS-IS and OSPF and configure and verify complex networks using both protocols.
