Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures(ARCH)

The ARCH course is a five-day course aimed at enabling students to perform the conceptual, intermediate, and detailed design of a network infrastructure that supports desired network solutions over intellligent network services in order to achieve effective performance, scalability, and availability.  The course enables students, by applying solid Cisco network solution models and recommended design practices, to provide viable, stable enterprise internetworking solutions.

The course presents concepts and examples that are necessary to design converged enterprise networks. Advanced network infrastructure technologies, such as virtual private networks (VPNs) and other security solutions are also covered.
