Cisco - ARCH: Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures v3
Prerequisite: Before taking this course, learners should be familiar with internetworking technologies, Cisco products, and Cisco IOS features. Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA®) level-of-knowledge, Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) level-of-knowledge, Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH) level-of-knowledge, and Implementing Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE) level-of- knowledge prerequisite skills are strongly recommended for students attending the ARCH course. CCDP Certification requires CCNA certification, CCDA certification, and passing the Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (642-813 SWITCH), Implementing Cisco IP Routing (642-902 ROUTE), and Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures (642-873 ARCH) exams. • The recommended courses for CCNA are Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 1 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 (ICND2). • The recommended course for CCDA is Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN). • The recommended course for ROUTE is Implementing Cisco IP Routing. • The recommended course for SWITCH is Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks.
Course Description: The aim of the course is to enable students to perform the conceptual, intermediate, and detailed design of a network infrastructure that supports desired network solutions over intelligent network services, in order to achieve effective performance, scalability, and availability. By applying solid Cisco network solution models and recommended design practices, students can provide viable, stable enterprise internetworking solutions. The course presents concepts and examples that are necessary to design converged enterprise networks. The course builds on the Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) course. Students will learn additional aspects of modular campus design, advanced addressing and routing designs, WAN service designs, enterprise data center, and security designs.
