CCRS-3CRSE Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System Essentials

Network Training Course Description:
The Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System Essentials (CRS) v1 lab-intensive course introduces you to the Cisco� CRS-3 Carrier Routing System and its features and functions. You will learn the important theoretical concepts on which the Cisco CRS-3 is based and gain the practical knowledge and skills to successfully deploy it in your network. You will be able to determine the right Cisco CRS-3 routing system based on the requirements of your network. In the hands-on labs, you will learn to install the Cisco IOS� XR Software operating system, deploy Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Internal Border Gateway Protocol (iBGP) routing protocols, and deploy Multiprotocol Label Switching�Label Distribution Protocol (MPLS-LDP) and MPLS Layer 3 VPNs in the classroom environment. In addition, you will be able to verify proper operation of various CRS-3 hardware, including the 140Gb/s switch fabric, 140Gb/s line cards, 14- and 20-port 10 Gigabit and 1-port 100 Gigabit Ethernet Physical Layer Interface Modules (PLIMs), the Performance Route Processor (PRP), and the new modular power systems, and perform basic troubleshooting. This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure that you are able to successfully deploy a Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System network.
Network Training Course Duration:
5 DAYS
Network Training Course Target Audience:
This course is intended for network professionals, including designers, implementation staff, network operations center personnel, and support staff, who are involved with the deployment, operations, and maintenance of the Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System and who have not taken the Cisco CRS-1 Essentials course. Those who have taken the Cisco CRS-1 Essentials course should take the Cisco CRS Product Enhancements course to gain CRS-3 product knowledge.
Network Training Course Prerequisite:
Students should have knowledge of the Cisco IOS XR Software configuration syntax to the extent covered in the Cisco® CRS-1 Essentials, Cisco IOS XR Fundamentals for Network Operations, or Cisco ASR 9000 Essentials course,Students attending this class should be able to establish, without assistance, a configuration for Open Shortest Path First Version 2 (OSPFv2), Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) with Routing Policy Language (RPL) policies as accomplished in the Cisco IOS XR IPv4 Routing course labs,Students must have a basic understanding of MPLS configuration and operation as covered in the Cisco CRS-1 Essentials, Cisco IOS XR Fundamentals for Network Operations, or Cisco ASR 9000 Essentials course
