Course Overview

The "Testing Routing Protocols" Training provides the methodology for testing OSPF, BGP, and MPLS devices and networks. Testing Routing Protocols includes in-depth instruction on conducting Routing performance testing following the appropriate RFC procedures. Testing Routing Protocols course covers the IP routing protocols and the concepts related to building the performance testcases for routing protocols and will give a good background for Engineers who will be using the test tools for testing the functional, performance and scalability testing.
