Successful completion of the Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI) exam is required for professional level Cisco® certifications CCIP, CCNP and CCDP. ATS training for the BSCI exam centers on using Cisco hardware in LANs and WANs that comprise medium and large networks. Expert instructor Michael Storm demonstrates use of interior gateway protocols (IGPs) OSPF, IS-IS, and EIGRP, as well as Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and IP addressing and routing protocols. At the conclusion of this course you’ll be familiar with the practical concepts needed to build scalable Cisco ® internetworks and be prepared to pass the BSCI exam
