Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) 3.0 allows students to gain an understanding of how to design a scalable internetwork that supports a converged network solution. This course covers a wide range of topics such as Cisco’s Enterprise Architecture, selecting and provisioning WAN technologies, and designing a routed infrastructure that is secure and supports IP telephony. A new addition to the course is a
Module on Cisco’s wireless LAN solution. In addition to general approaches and technologies for network design, the DESGN 3.0 course promotes Cisco solutions in designing and implementing scalable internetworks.
To benefit fully from this course, the following prerequisite courses, skills, and knowledge are strongly recommended:
A current CCNA certification, or equivalent knowledge and experience, including successful completion of CCNA coursework
Familiarity with IP addressing, subnetting and route summarization
Familiarity with routing and switching concepts
Practical experience with deploying and operating networks based on Cisco network devices and Cisco IOS software, as well as functional knowledge of Cisco wireless and QoS topics
