Description

Many engineers work their whole careers without ever really looking under the hood to understand why a network was designed the way it was. Some of this is because their day to day duties don't require this knowledge, and some of this is because an engineer chooses to focus their knowledge on becoming exceptional operational engineers. In this course, Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks: IPv4 and IPv6 Addressing Design, you'll take a look at many of the different skills that are required to develop an IPv4 and IPv6 addressing plan. First, you'll discover several of the different fundamental concepts that are required to understand IPv4 and IPV6 addressing including binary math, masks, classes, subnetting, and CIDR. Next, you'll focus in on the IPv4 addressing plan, specifically the questions that must be asked and what to look for, common addressing standards, and a discussion about design hierarchy. Finally, you'll take a look at how these concepts can be applied in a demonstration using the Globomantics network. By the end of this course, you'll have a firm base understanding of IPv4 and IPv6 addressing and addressing planning, as well as the knowledge of the common important services that are often implemented along with an addressing plan.

Description

Many engineers work their whole careers without ever really looking under the hood to understand why a network was designed the way it was. Some of this is because their day-to-day duties don't require this knowledge, and some of this is because an engineer chooses to focus their knowledge on becoming exceptional operational engineers. In this course, Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks: Routing Protocols, you will take a closer look at the routing protocols that are commonly implemented in Enterprise networks, specifically covering EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS and BGP. First, you will review the basics of each of these protocols and some amount of the inner-workings of each of the protocols. Then, you will explore the basics of routing protocols including the different types and behaviors that are common between them. Next, you will learn about EIGRP, basic EIGRP concepts including neighborships, metrics, the topology table, summarization, and stub. After that, you will see basic OSPF concepts including neighborships, metrics, areas, the Link state database, summarization, and stub. Finally, you will explore IS-IS concepts including neighborships, metrics, and areas. You'll wrap up with a review of the basic BGP concepts including neighborships or peerings, and path selection. When you are finished with this course, you will have a firm base of understanding of the different routing protocols that are commonly implemented in an enterprise environment.

In this course, Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks: Advanced Enterprise Campus Networks, you will take a closer look at Campus LAN technologies including some discussion about how they work, as well as how they can be fitted together to form a well designed campus LAN network. First, you will explore hierarchy and how it is used in a networking environment. Next, you will be taught about the common layer 1 and layer 2 concepts, features, and technologies. This includes everything from cabling connectors and cables to spanning tree and VLANs. Then, you will learn about high availability and how these different technologies and features improve on those covered previously, as well as covers the design recommendations for them. Finally, you will discover the design recommendations for the aforementioned items. By the end of this course, you will have a firm base of understanding about the available layer 1 and 2 technologies that are implemented on Campus LANs, and have a good understanding of how many of these different technologies can be implemented together to form a well designed network from the access to the core layers.
