CCNP Self-Study: Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI) is a Cisco authorized self-paced learning tool. It teaches you how to design, configure, maintain, and scale routed networks that are growing in size and complexity. This book focuses on using Cisco routers connected in LANs and WANs typically found at medium-sized to large network sites. Whether you are preparing for CCNP, CCDP(r), or CCIP(tm) certification or simply want to gain a better understanding of the products, services, and policies that help you control traffic over LANs and WANs and connect your network to Internet service providers, you will benefit from the comprehensive foundation information presented in this book.In CCNP Self-Study: Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI), you will study a broad range of technical details on topics related to routing, including routing principles, IP addressing issues such as variable-length subnet masks (VLSMs), route summarization, and protocol redistribution. The routing protocols Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) are investigated in detail. Configuration examples and sample verification output demonstrate troubleshooting techniques, and a case study is used throughout the book to review key concepts and to discuss critical issues surrounding network operation. Chapter-ending configuration exercises and review questions illustrate and help solidify the concepts presented in the book. This in-depth information on Cisco BSCI exam topics will start you down the path for attaining your CCNP, CCDP, or CCIP certification.
