ARCH is a five day instructor led course which teaches delegates how to perform the conceptual and intermediate design of a network infrastructure that supports the desired network solutions over intelligent network services, to achieve effective performance, scalability and availability. The delegate will learn the fundamental aspects of the network design addressing QOS, Security, Network Management, fine tuning Routing Protocols, Switching Structures and IP Multicast. In addition the delegate will leave with Solution Models for solutions and aspects of the network that are strategic to today's Cisco's customers: Voice over IP and IP Telephony, Content and Storage Networking, Wireless Networking.

  • Present the Cisco AVVID framework, its segmentation of the network infrastructure, as well as intelligent network services to support key enterprise network applications and network solutions
  • Design enterprise campus and enterprise edge network infrastructures for effective functionality, performance, scalability, and availability, given specified enterprise network needs
  • Design security, network management, QoS, high availability, and IP multicast intelligent network services for performance, scalability, and availability, given enterprise network needs
  • Design enterprise solutions for virtual private networks, wireless networks, IP telephony, content networking, storage networking, given enterprise network needs
  • Present enterprise network designs for small, medium, and large enterprises, showing how the design meets enterprise needs for effective performance, scalability, and availability

This course is part of the Cisco Certified Design Professional Certification (CCDP).
