Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures Version 2.1 - CARCH

The Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures (ARCH) v2.1 course enables students to perform the conceptual, intermediate, and detailed design of a network infrastructure that supports desired network solutions over intelligent network services, to achieve effective performance, scalability, and availability. This course enables learners, 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. Advanced network infrastructure technologies, such as virtual private networks (VPNs) and other security solutions, are also covered. The new Version 2.1 revision of the ARCH course includes the following new features:

  • The latest developments in network design and technologies
  • Significant updates to the enterprise campus module
  • Significant updates to the data center module

Target Audience

This course is intended for individuals seeking the Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP) Certification and for those individuals aiming for the CCDE (Cisco Certified Design Expert) Certification.
