Overview

Firebrand Training Official Cisco Learning Partner

This certification retired on 24th February 2020. Our closest replacement is CCNA.

This course is designed to give you a foundation knowledge of network design using Cisco's SONA (Service Oriented Network Architecture) methodology. You'll gain information that will assist you in designing routed and switched network infrastructures and services involving LANs and WANs. The course will prepare you for the Cisco CCDA (Cisco Certified Design Associate) exam, which you'll sit on the course.

During the course, you'll learn how to design routed and switched network infrastructures and services involving LAN, WAN, and broadband access for businesses and organisations, including service virtualisation. The Enterprise Composite Model used in the course will make it easier to design, plan, implement, operate and optimise (PDIOO) through modular network design and focus on the relations between modules. You'll also learn about Software-Defined Networking.

Once you have completed the course, you'll be able to enable efficient network environments with an understanding of network design fundamentals. The certification will demonstrate that you have the skills required to design and apply basic and resilient campus, data centre, security, voice, and wireless networks. You'll also be able to:

  • Describe and apply network design concepts of modularity and hierarchy
  • Create scalable IPv4 and IPv6 addressing
  • Design connectivity to the Internet and internal routing for your network
  • Identify suitable addressing schemes and routing protocols for use in enterprise networks
  • Design routed and switched network infrastructures and services involving LAN, WAN, and broadband access for businesses and organisations.
