The CCNP SPROUTE exam is probably the most interesting exam in the CCNP SP track for network engineers that like going deep into protocol knowledge and technologies. The CCNP SPROUTE exam focuses itself on 4 major technologies: OSPF, IS-IS, BGP and IPv6. We go through each one of these technologies in detail. You will find independent, easy to digest and in-depth technologies videos in this course.

We are working right now to bring you videos of IPv6 for this exam as soon as possible.
