The Cisco Aggregation Services Router 9000 Series Essential (ASR9KE) v.4 instructor-led course offered by High-Touch Delivery Learning Services introduces you to the features and functions of the Cisco 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; software; Layer 2 and Layer 3 services; Layer 2 and Layer 3 multicast; operations, administration, and management (OAM); quality of service(QoS) features; and network virtualization.


  • Basic knowledge of router installation and some experience with installation tools
  • Routing protocol configuration experience with BGP, Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), and Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
  • Knowledge of Layer 2 IEEE switching and related protocols
  • Strong knowledge of MPLS configuration or multicast configuration experience
  • Experience troubleshooting Cisco routers in a large network environment
