Implementing Cisco IP Routing (300-101)

Exam Description: Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE 300-101) is a 120-minute qualifying exam with 50?60 questions for the Cisco CCNP and CCDP certifications. The ROUTE 300-101 exam certifies the routing knowledge and skills of successful candidates. They are certified in using advanced IP addressing and routing in implementing scalable and highly secure Cisco routers that are connected to LANs, WANs,
and IPv6.
The exam also covers the configuration of highly secure routing solutions to support branch offices and mobile workers.

The following topics are general guidelines for the content that is likely to be included on the exam.

However, other related topics may also appear on any specific version of the exam. To better reflect the contents of the exam and for clarity, the following guidelines may change at any time without notice.
