Course summary

An IP course that looks at providing a grounding in two principle routing protocols namely Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).

Who would benefit

All network engineers who are in need of information concerning the configuration and operation of link state protocols such as OSPF and the Path Vector Algorithm demonstrated by BGP. This is an essential prerequisite for anyone considering taking on Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS).


It is essential that engineers have a grounding in IP and networking which is best obtained by attending our Wray Castle course ‘Internetworking, Ethernet LANs and VLANs Principles – IP1304’ and ‘IP Addressing and Internet Protocols Principles – IP1305’.

Topic areas include

  • The purpose of routing
  • The route table
  • Routing traffic
  • Interior and exterior gateway protocols
  • Routing Information Protocol (RIP) v1
  • OSPF concepts
  • OSPF configuration
  • Interior (IGP) versus Exterior (EGP) routing
