In addition to general approaches and technologies for network design, this course promotes Cisco solutions in designing and implementing scalable internetworks. Among specific goals is the promotion of the modular approach to network design. The early modular approaches to network design divided networks into access, distribution and core layers only, separately for the campus and the WAN module. The Enterprise Composite Model facilitates designing, planning, implementing, operating and optimizing (PDIOO) networks by concentration on a certain module and on relations between the modules. Taking into account that most network solutions today (e.g. voice, video, storage networking, content networking) are typically overlay solutions spanning several modules, the composite modular approach seems even more relevant and is the main focus of this course. In addition, services virtualization and the SONA architecture are presented. The general course objectives remain the same, because ultimately - the tasks a designer must perform did not change, however, the products, technologies, services and solutions did change. There is also a lesson on SDN.

Network Engineer (Field) Medium
Upon completing this course, you will be able to meet these objectives:
Describe and apply network design methodologies
Describe and apply network design concepts of modularity and hierarchy
Design a resilient and scalable Campus network
Design a resilient and scalable connectivity between parts of your Enterprise network
Design connectivity to the Internet and internal routing for your network
Integrate collaboration and wireless infrastructure into your core network
Create scalable IPv4 and IPv6 addressing
Describe what software defined networks are and describe example solutions
The prerequisite for the students attending the Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions course is the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification or equivalent level of working knowledge and experience. This can be best achieved by taking the CCNA Basics and Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices (ICND) courses. Practical experience with deploying and operating networks based on Cisco network devices and Cisco IOS is strongly recommended.
The students with Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) or equivalent level of knowledge and experience will probably have the advantage of being able to participate more actively in classroom discussions.
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
