Network Design Course enables network designers, engineers, architects, and CCDP candidates to perform the conceptual, intermediate, and detailed design of a network infrastructure that supports desired network solutions over intelligent network services to achieve effective performance, scalability, and availability.

By applying solid Cisco network solution models and recommended design practices, Network Design Course enables learners to provide viable, stable enterprise internetworking solutions.

This course presents concepts and examples necessary to design converged enterprise networks. Also, this new edition has content addressing software-defined networks (SDNs).

You will learn additional aspects of modular campus design, advanced routing designs, WAN service designs, enterprise data center design, and security design.

Enterprise environments require networks designed for performance, availability, and scalability to achieve outcomes. Seasoned IT professionals with progressive end-to-end network design expertise are crucial in ensuring networks deliver to meet today’s requirements while future-proofing investments.

For senior network design engineers, principal system engineers, network/solution architects, and CCDA professionals looking to build on your fundamental Cisco network design expertise, the Cisco CCDP certification program focuses on advanced addressing and routing protocols, WANs, service virtualization,  and integration strategies for multilayered enterprise architectures.

Successful candidates will be able to design and understand the inner workings of all elements within the common enterprise network, including internal routing, BGP routing, modern WAN connectivity, modern data center and data center interconnect, basic network security considerations, advanced quality-of-service design, transition to IPv6, and multicast routing design
