Offers hierarchy—each layer has
• Modular topology—building blocks
• Easy to grow, understand, and
• Creates small fault domains—clear
demarcations and isolation
• Promotes load balancing and
• Promotes deterministic traffic patterns
• Incorporates balance of both Layer 2 and
Layer 3 technology, leveraging the
strength of both
• Can be applied to all campus designs;
multilayer L2/L3 and routed access
Objectives: Describe the basic features of EIGRP. Scenario: EIGRP was introduced as a Distance-Vector routing protocol in 1992. It was originally designed to work as a proprietary protocol on Cisco devices only.
In this Capstone Project activity, you will demonstrate your ability to: Design, configure, verify, and secure EIGRP, IPv4 or IPv6 on a network; Design a VLSM addressing scheme for the devices connected to the LANs; Present your design using network documentation from your Capstone Project network.
This document provides design guidance for implementing a routed (Layer 3 switched) access layer
using EIGRP or OSPF as the campus routing protocol. It is an accompaniment to the hierarchical campus
design guides, Designing a Campus Network for High Availability and High Availability Campus
Recovery Analysis, and includes the following sections
Upon completing this lesson, you will be able to:
Describe the features and operation of static routing
Describe the features and operation of dynamic routing protocols, including RIP, IGRP, EIGRP, and OSPF
Build a functional router configuration to support the specified network operational requirements, given a network design
Use show commands to identify anomalies in routing operation, given an operational router
Use debug commands to identify events and anomalies in routing operation, given an operational router...
