Course outline

Reference : © CISCO ARCH v3.0

Duration : 5 jours

Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures (ARCH) v3.0 will provide you with the important knowledge and skills to perform the conceptual, intermediate and detailed design of a network infrastructure to achieve effective performance, scalability and availability. In this comprehensive course you will learn to apply Cisco network solution models and recommended design practices to design viable and stable enterprise internetworking solutions. You will learn concepts and examples necessary to design converged enterprise networks. New in v3.0 is the addition of content addressing for software defined networks (SDN). Building on the Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) v3.0 course, you will learn additional aspects of modular campus design, advanced addressing and routing designs, WAN service designs, enterprise data center and security designs.
