CCRS-1CRSE Cisco CRS-1 Carrier Routing System Essentials

Network Training Course Description:
This lab-intensive course introduces you to the Cisco® CRS-1 Carrier Routing System and its features and functions. You will learn the important theoretical concepts that the Cisco CRS-1 is based on and gain the practical knowledge and skills to successfully deploy it in your network. You will be able to determine the right Cisco CRS-1 based on the requirements of your network. In 12 hands-on labs, you will learn to install the Cisco IOS® XR Software operating system, create and configure secure domain routers (SDRs), deploy common routing protocols, implement IP Multicast, and deploy Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) traffic engineering and MPLS layer 3 VPNs in the classroom environment. You will also use Route Policy Language (RPL) to deploy largescale routing configurations and perform basic troubleshooting. This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to ensure that you are able to successfully deploy a Cisco CRS-1 Carrier Routing System network.
