The MikroTik MTCRE is a 2nd level certificate from MikroTik, and it is considered an Engineering level course. This course covers all aspects of intermediate-level Routing. Holding the MikroTik MTCRE certification is a prerequisite for pursuing the higher-level Routing certificate, the MTCINE.

To facilitate your understanding of Routing in MikroTik and prepare you for the MikroTik MTCRE exam, I have structured this course with a blend of theoretical knowledge and extensive LAB work. If you wish to follow along with the course effectively, I recommend having access to 1 PC and at least 5 MikroTik Routers with UTP Cables. Alternatively, you can utilize MikroTik CHR within GNS3 for lab emulation. With GNS3, physical RouterBoards are not necessary as all LABS can be simulated.

The course will cover the following topics:

  • More specific routes
  • ECMP
  • How to force gateway over specific interface
  • Gateway reachability check and route distance
  • Routing mark and route policy
  • Recursive next-hop and scope/target-scope usage
  • What is OSPF?
  • How OSPF protocol works
  • Hello protocol
  • Database distribution and LSA types explained
  • OSPF network structure
  • Areas
  • Router types
  • OSPF neighbors and neighbor states (DR and BDR election)
  • External Route Distribution methods (type1, type2)
  • Interface cost and interface types (broadcast, NBMA, etc.)
  • SPT calculation algorithm
  • OSPF and multicast (problems with NBMA)
  • Stub, NSSA and area ranges (route aggregation)
  • Virtual links, usage and limitations
  • SPF routing filters and limitations
  • What is VPN?
  • Different types of VPN
  • Site to site connectivity with tunnels
  • VLAN and it's usage
  • VLAN and managed switch
  • VLAN and switch chip configuration on RouterBOARDs
  • Q-in-Q implementation

This course encompasses a wide range of topics, each with its own set of sub-topics. Extensive LAB work is integrated into each topic area, providing practical experience in configuring various aspects on MikroTik.

Ultimately, if your goal is to gain a comprehensive understanding of all MTCRE topics and to be well-prepared for the MTCRE exam, we encourage you to take this course. We are confident that it will help you achieve your objectives.
