Description

At the beginning of every network life sits a network designer who must weigh the requirements of the future network applications and put forth a design that will fulfill those requirements with the resources available. This course, Security, Collaboration, and Wireless Network Design for CCDA DESGN (200-310), deals with some more esoteric options available compared to standard switching and routing. First, you'll look at the security landscape in regards to threats, policies, and equipment available. Next, you'll consider voice and video requirements paying attention to codecs and QoS. Then, you'll compare wireless options, vis-a-vis autonomous access points vs. lightweight centrally managed access points. Finally, you'll verify our previous edge designs against our new knowledge for Globomantics. By the end of the course, you'll have a better understanding of the speciality knowledge required for deploying firewalls, telephony, and wifi.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Leigh Bogardis and welcome to my course, Cisco Security, Collaboration, and Wireless Design for the CCDA DESGN 200-310 for Pluralsight. I'm a network architect contracting in the UK. If you've ever been asked to design a network for a small office or a larger office, but where you need to consider security appliances, collaboration struck Unified COMs or wireless deployments, then this course is for you. In this course we're going to explore the options and knowledge needed to define and design an office where firewalls, telephones or access points form a part of that design. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, one, security. What technologies exist for you to protect your edge and infrastructure? Two, collaboration. What do you need to understand for providing voice and video to the client? Three, wireless. What to deploy for wireless coverage inside and out. And by the end of this course, you'll be much more confident and knowledgeable about implementing security, telephony, and wireless into your design. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with CCNA level techniques and technologies from Cisco. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about designing with these more esoteric network subjects with the Cisco Security, Collaboration, and Wireless Design for CCDA DESGN 200-310 course at Pluralsight.

Bringing It All Together for Globomantics
Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening. Whatever time it is and whatever time zone you're in, welcome to this, the Cisco Security, Collaboration, Wireless Network Design for CCDA DESGN 200-310 course for Pluralsight. My name is Leigh Bogardis and I'm a network architect from the UK. Now in this module I'm going to talk about deploying the three network subjects we've been talking about in the previous modules in this course, notably security, collaboration, and wireless, all this for Globomantics branch office designs. So let's go and have a look at the overview and see what's in this course. You may recall that I've already done this exercise for edge network deployments in one of the previous courses of this CCDA. I'm going to shamelessly reuse that presentation, but tweak it to reflect this course. Now Globomantics needs to design connections for the following, a small branch office for up to 5 people in the metro, a smallish branch office in a small town, but larger than the previous one, up to 30 users in a VIP/VP, and finally a factory of 100 people with applications and devices in an industrial area. Whereas before I was just focusing on the data side, now I will be discussing security, voice, and wireless aspects and whether that might change the recommendations I made in the previous module.
