Cisco IOS XR Multicast Routing Implementation and Verification (IOSXR302)

Course Overview

The Cisco IOS® XR Multicast Routing Implementation and Verification  (IOSXR302) is an instructor-led, lab-based, hands-on course offered by Cisco® Learning Services. It covers implementing multicast routing and multicast VPNs on Cisco IOS XR Software-based platforms.

In this course you learn how to implement multicast routing and multicast-enabled services on Cisco IOS-XR Software-based networks. You learn how to implement and verify multicast routing in the core of a service provider network. You also learn how to implement and verify multicast-enabled services, including multicast VPNs.

This course is part of a portfolio of courses that are designed to enable service providers to support and maintain their Cisco IOS XR platforms. These platforms include the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Routers, Carrier Routing System 1 (CRS-1), CRS-3, CRS-X, and Network Convergence System (NCS) 1000, 4000, 5000, and 5500 Series, and the Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.
