The Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (CCDA
Intensive) course focuses on the skills
needed to design world-class networks for small-
to medium-sized networks (fewer than 500 nodes).
This course takes students through all the steps
necessary to design an internetwork that meets
a customer's needs for functionality, performance,
scalability, and security. Student will design
network solutions that include the network topology,
LAN and WAN hardware and media, network-layer
addressing, routing protocols, software feature
provisioning, and a network management strategy.
This course will prepare students to successfully
pass the Cisco
certification exam #640-861 to become a Cisco
Certified Design Associate (CCDA).
