OSPF and BGP Routing Protocols

2 Days / 4 Live Online Sessions (0900-1230) / Technical Level: Level 3

Course Code: IP1310

Course Summary

This practically based course is designed to give engineers a working understanding of OSPF and BGP by configuration of routers and switches and investigation of databases and routing tables.

Who would benefit

Engineers who are moving into IP and need to have an operational understanding of typical devices such as Ethernet Switches and IP routers.


A basic understanding of Ethernet switching and basics of routing such as OSPF together with a good understanding of IP addressing which can be obtained by attending our Wray Castle courses: ‘Internetworking, Ethernet LANs and VLANs Principles – IP1304’ and ‘IP Addressing and Internet Protocols Principles – IP1305’ and ‘Routing Protocol Principles – IP1306’.
