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 scalable, 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 infrastructures effect the core network from a design perspective.

Who should attend

This course is intended for:

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

Class Prerequisites

The following are recommended before taking the DESGN v3.0 course:

You should also have practical experience with deploying and operating networks based on Cisco network devices and Cisco IOS software.
