Students are expected to already be knowledgeable about the technologies used in the course and how they are configured with both Cisco IOS XR Software and Cisco IOS Software. Students who are deficient in these prerequisites will be expected to do homework so they do not slow down the students who have met the prerequisites.
  • Study material - Prior to class students will be required to have reviewed the videos, multimedia documentation, and textual documentation at
  • Ability to configure Cisco IOS XR Software- Advanced Services Introduction to Cisco IOS XR Software course or equivalent experience in configuring Cisco IOS XR Software
  • Basic knowledge of the CRS architecture and operations - Cisco CRS-1 Essentials course or equivalent experience in configuring Cisco IOS XR Software on the CRS-1Note: Because of overlapping content of the previous two courses, both are not required. Attendance in one of the two courses is strongly advised.
  • Basic knowledge of the Cisco 12000 Series Router (Gigabit Switch Router, or GSR) architecture and operations - Cisco 12000 Series Technical Product Training (GSR) v2.0 or equivalent experience in operating and maintaining the GSR
  • Comprehensive knowledge of designing, implementing, and operating a large-scale network for high availability
  • Ability to efficiently use a command-line interface (CLI) to perform configurations
  • Ability to configure, optimize, and scale dynamic routing protocols, in particular Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) Protocol, Intermediate System¿to¿
  • Familiarity with traffic engineering and load balancing principles and methodologies
  • Familiarity with quality-of-service (QoS) and service-level agreement principles and methodologies
Course Content

This is an advanced course that focuses on maintenance and troubleshooting of Cisco IOS XR Software in a typical network deployment. Although the focus of this course is on Cisco IOS XR Software, a solid understanding of the hardware on which it is implemented is a requirement. This course will detail the hardware architecture knowledge needed to effectively maintain and troubleshoot the Cisco Carrier Routing System (CRS-1) and the Cisco XR 12000 Series Router.

    Course Objectives

    Upon completion of this course, you should be able to :

    • Describe the purpose, network insertion, architecture, and interoperability of the SCA solution components.
    • Install the SCA solution components� hardware and software, to include SCE, SCA-BB Console, Collection Manager, and Subscriber Manager.
    • Generate detailed reports on bandwidth usage by subscriber and service type.
    • Use the Service Control Editor to provision combinations of bandwidth controls: quota, timebased, and tiered services to support both subscriberless and subscriber-aware traffic control scenarios.
    • Configure SCA Subscriber Manager and Quota Manager to affect subscriber-aware reporting and traffic control scenarios.
    • Implement RADIUS and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) integration for dynamic subscriber awareness through login event generation (LEG) interfaces.
    • Describe and configure an SCA virtual links configuration.
    • Describe SCA solution design methodology, specific to sizing, high-availability considerations (cascade), and MGSCP topologies.
