Deploying Cisco Service Provider Network Routing - SPROUTE (Professional)

Deploying Cisco Service Provider Network Routing - SPROUTE (Professional) Course Description

Duration: 5.00 days (40 hours)

Cisco Career Guide

The Deploying Cisco Service Provider Network Routing (SPROUTE) v1.2 course is designed to help students prepare for the Cisco Service Provider (CCNP SP) certification. The SPROUTE course is a component of the CCNP SP curriculum.

The SPROUTE course is designed to provide service provider professionals with information on the use of advanced routing in implementing scalability for Cisco routers that are connected to LANs and WANs. The goal is to train professionals to dramatically increase the number of routers and sites using these techniques instead of redesigning the network when additional sites or wiring configurations are added. The SPROUTE training reinforces the instruction by providing students with hands-on labs to ensure that they thoroughly understand how to implement advanced routing within their networks.

Exam format
Exam Number: 642-883 SPROUTE
Associated Certifications: CCNP Service Provider
Duration: 90 minutes (65-75 questions)
