SPROUTE Training

SPROUTE (Deploying Cisco Service Provider Network Routing) is a five-day course that prepares you for the SPROUTE exam required for the new CCNP-SP Certification. It is the first of four CCNP Service Provider (CCNP-SP) courses. This certification is designed to prepare students to work at the Professional level in a service provider environment. The SPROUTE course is designed to provide service provider professionals with information on the use of advanced routing in implementing scalability for Cisco routers that are connected to local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). The goal is to train professionals to dramatically increase the number of routers and sites using these techniques instead of redesigning the network when additional sites or wiring configurations are added. The SPROUTE training reinforces the instruction by providing students with hands-on labs to ensure they thoroughly understand how to implement advanced routing within their networks.

The course also includes classroom activities with remote labs that are useful to gain practical skills on deploying Cisco IOS, IOS XE and Cisco IOS XR features to operate and support the service provider networks.
