Master the fundamental network principles needed to pass the CCNP ROUTE 300-101 exam for the CCNP Routing and Switching certification. This first course in the series covers the fundamentals such as IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, WAN technologies, dynamic routing, RIPv2, and TCP and UDP operations.

Configuring WAN Technologies In this module, we're going to configure three popular layer 2 WAN technologies on the command line. If you look at the topics for the ROUTE exam, this module corresponds to section 2 of the exam topics. Those topics are PPP, the point-to-point protocol, PPP over Ethernet, and one of my favorites, frame relay.
IPv4 Addressing and Subnetting Welcome back to Basic Networking for CCNP Routing and Switching 300-101 Route. I'm Ben Piper, and this module is all about IPv4 addressing and subnetting. You should already know how to assign IP addresses to interfaces and subnet IP networks from your CCNA studies. So this module is going to build on those fundamentals and focus on what you need to know specifically for the ROUTE exam. First, we're going to cover how to quickly convert binary to decimal and vice versa. On the exam, you're going to have only a set amount of time, so it's critical that you know how to do this quickly. And that's what I'm going to show you. Next, I'm going to show you a trick I use to subnet quickly, and with a little practice, you can actually get to the point where you can do this in your head, which is a huge timesaver. After that, we'll learn a quick and easy way to convert subnet mass from slash notation to dotted decimal notation and vice versa. Again, another skill crucial to your success on the exam. Then, we'll revisit frame relay and how to assign IP addresses to frame relay interfaces. After that, we'll learn how to calculate wild card masks for subnet masks. And, finally, we'll learn about and configure loopback interfaces, which we'll use later on in the course when we start talking about dynamic routing. Now before we get started, go ahead and get out a pen and a piece of paper if you want to follow along.
