Course Overview

Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures (ARCH) v3.0 course will discuss design of internal routing, BGP routing, WAN, data center connectivity, security, QoS, transition to IPv6, and multicast.

This course will enable students to perform the conceptual, intermediate and details design of a network infrastructure that supports desired network solutions over intelligent network services, to achieve effective performance, scalability and availability.

CARCH enables students, applying solid Cisco network solution models and recommended design practices, to provide viable, stable Enterprise internetworking solutions. The course presents concepts and examples necessary to design converged enterprise networks. New in version 3.0 is the addition of content addressing software defined networks (SDN).

Building on the concepts covered in the Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (CI-DESGN) course, students will learn additional aspects of modular campus design, advanced addressing and routing designs, WAN service designs, enterprise data center and security designs.

It is recommended that the students only attend this course after they mastered CI-DESGN v3.0 topics and have passed DESGN 200-301 exam.


Who should attend

The target audience for the CARCH course consists of individuals seeking the Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP) certification. The course is also targeted at pre-sales and post-sales network engineers involved in the Enterprise network design, planning and implementation. (The post-sales network engineers involved in the implementation will be involved in providing feedback to the pre-sales network engineers and correct possible design flaws).


Certifications

This course is part of the following Certifications:
