  • N10-007 2.2: Given a scenario, determine the appropriate placement of networking devices on a network and install/configure them (Router)

Lab Duration

It will take approximately 1 hour to complete this lab.

Exercise 1 - Static Routing

In this exercise, you will learn how to view and understand a routing table and how

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Implement static routing

Exercise 2 - Dynamic Routing

In this exercise, you will learn how to implement dynamic routing. In contrast to static routing, dynamic routing involves the exchange of routing information between devices using a routing protocol. From this information, each device builds a topology of the network. There are many different routing protocols, some are industry standard, and some are proprietary. These routing protocols fall into two major categories depending on how they function. These categories are distance vector and link state.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Use RIP to implement dynamic routing

Exercise 3 - Static and Dynamic Routing

There are many advantages to dynamic routing as compared to static routing. The major advantage is the way that dynamic routing automatically adjusts to changes in the network whereas static routing requires manual changes to the configuration in order to accommodate such changes.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Compare static and dynamic routing

Exercise 4 - Floating Static Route

A floating static route is a static route that the router uses to back up a dynamic route. You must configure a floating static route with a higher administrative distance than the dynamic route that it backs up. In this way, the router prefers a dynamic route to a floating static route. The floating static route will be automatically used as a replacement if the dynamic route is lost.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Implement a floating static route

Exercise 5 - Configuring Multiple Dynamic Routing Protocols

It is possible to configure a network with multiple routing protocols. Depending on how they are configured different destinations can be advertised and learned using different routing protocols. Some destinations can be advertised by multiple routing protocols, and the router chooses, based on specific criteria, which information will be used to populate its routing table.

In this exercise, you will create additional subnets on loopback interfaces on the NYEDGE1 router, and you will advertise these subnets using OSPF and EIGRP.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Configure multiple dynamic routing protocols on the same network
