Description

The Cisco Aggregation Services Router 9000 Series Essentials (ASR9KE) v6.0 course introduces you to the features and functions of the Cisco Aggregation Services Router (ASR) 9000 Series platforms. Through a combination of lecture and hands-on labs, you will gain an understanding of all major aspects of the platform, including hardware, Layer 2 and Layer 3 services, routing protocols including Segment Routing, Layer 2 and Layer 3 multicast, Quality of Service (QoS) features, and network virtualization. The course investigates Cisco Internetworking Operating System (IOS) XR 64-Bit Linux-based feature parity in the environment, as well as how to install Cisco IOS XR 64-Bit software packages.

This course will help you:
  • Understand the essential features and functions of the ASR 9000 Series routers running Cisco IOS XR 64-Bit software
  • Practice Cisco IOS XR 64-Bit configurations on the ASR 9900 Series router in lab exercises
  • Configure Cisco ASR 9900 configuration changes and restore older versions of the configuration
  • Install the Cisco IOS XR 64-Bit Software operating system, Package Information Envelopes (PIEs), and Software Maintenance Updates (SMUs)
  • Understand data flow through the Cisco ASR 9000 and ASR 9900 Series router

Course duration
  • Instructor-led training: 4 days in the classroom with hands-on lab practice
  • Virtual instructor-led training: 5 days of web-based classes with hands-on lab practice
  • E-learning: Equivalent of 4 days of video instruction with hands-on lab practice
