This Cisco Internetwork Solutions training course presents a structured and modular approach to designing networks that are scalable, resilient, and have well-defined failure domains. The course discusses routing and switching design of Campus and Enterprise networks in detail. Data center, wireless networking, and real-time traffic infrastructure are introduced and their effects on the core network are discussed from the design perspective.

You Will Learn How To

  • Describe and apply network design methodologies
  • Describe and apply network design concepts of modularity and hierarchy
  • Design a resilient and scalable Campus network
  • Design a resilient and scalable connectivity between parts of your Enterprise network
  • Design connectivity to the Internet and internal routing for your network
  • Integrate collaboration and wireless infrastructure into your core network
  • Create scalable IPv4 and IPv6 addressing
  • Describe what are software defined networks and describe example solutions

Important Course Information


  • The knowledge and skills that a learner must have before attending this course are as follows:
    • Operate LANs with multiple switches, configure VLANs, trunking, spanning tree, DHCP, and port aggregation within Campus network
    • Configure and troubleshoot IPv4 and IPv6 routing within a Enterprise network (static, EIGRP, multi-area OSPF, and RIPng)
    • Implement enterprise Internet connectivity (static routes and basic BGP)
    • Implement route redistribution using filtering mechanisms
    • Implement path control using policy based routing and IP SLA
    • Implement First Hop redundancy in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
    • Configure devices for SNMP, Syslog, and NetFlow access
