Security, Collaboration, and Wireless Network Design for CCDA DESGN (200-310)

by Leigh Bogardis

This course is designed for network engineers interested in deploying firewalls, telephony or wifi in their designs.

What you'll learn

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.
