New courses are centered on technologies, not so much on hardware, making them more flexible and aligned with specific job requirements.

A well-administered, secure, and efficient large-scale network environment is key in any successful business, as it helps monetize services faster, it reduces network downtime, keeps cost under control and ensures business continuity.

Skills for today's large-scale networks challenges

As business requirements continue to evolve, so is Cisco updating its training portfolio to provide network engineers with skills that match new business and technical needs. The Cisco Learning Services (CLS) Service Provider Routing courses provide your networking team with hands-on experience required to properly design, install, configure, maintain, manage, and troubleshoot large networks in today’s complex service provider or large enterprise environments.

Cisco announced a major update to their Service Provider Routing training portfolio by introducing 5 new courses on its Cisco IOS XR Operating System.
