Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures v3.0


Course Description


Overview

This course is designed to enable students to perform the conceptual, intermediate and detailed design of a network infrastructure that supports desired networks solutions over intelligent network services, to achieve effective performance, scalability, and availability. ARCH enables learners applying solid Cisco network solution models and recommended design practices to provide viable, stable enterprise internetworking solutions. The course presents concepts and examples necessary to design converged enterprise networks including internal routing, BGP routing, WAN, data center connectivity, security, QoS, transition to IPv6, and multicast.  

Audience

This course is intended for individuals seeking the Cisco CCDP certification and those working toward the Cisco CCDE certification. Presales and postsales network engineers that are involved in network design, planning, and implementation, Network administrators and designers that are responsible for designing and implementing the enterprise network.
