About this Course

Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) v3.0 is a 5 day instructor led course that presents a structured and modular approach to designing networks that are scaleable, resilient, and have well-defined failure domains. You will discuss routing and switching design of Campus and Enterprise networks in detail and learn how the data center, wireless networking, and real-time traffic infrastructure effects the core network from the design perspective.

Who should attend

This course is intended for:

  • Network Designer
  • Systems Engineer
  • Engineer seeking the Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) certification

Certifications

This course is part of the following Certifications:
