Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) 640-864 DESGN

Course Title: Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions

Course Code: DESGN 640-864
Duration: 5 days

Course Overview

The Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions (DESGN) Cisco training course has been designed to enable candidates to understand the internetworking requirements, identify solutions, design the network infrastructure and services to ensure the basic functionality of the proposed solutions. This course will provide candidates with the necessary skills and knowledge required to achieve Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) level competency in network design.

Target Audience

Candidates who should consider attending the DESGN 640-863 Cisco training course are those aiming to achieve Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) certification and those individuals targeting towards achieving Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP) certification. The course is also targeted at pre-sales and post-sales network engineers involved in network design, planning and implementation.

Course Objectives

On successfully completing the DESGN 640-863 course candidates will be able to:
  • Discuss network design methodology
  • Describe how to structure and modularise the network design using the Cisco Enterprise Architecture
  • Design the enterprise campus and enterprise data centre modules
  • Design the enterprise edge and remote modules as needed
  • Evaluate security solutions for the network
  • Recommend a design for basic voice transport across the network
  • Recommend a design for a basic wireless solution
  • Design a network addressing plan and select suitable routing protocols for a given network design

Course Prerequisites

Candidates attending the DESGN 640-863 Cisco training course should hold a valid CCNA Certification. Building Converged Cisco Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN) is also strongly recommended and students with Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) or equivalent level of knowledge and experience are likely to have the advantage of being able to participate more actively in classroom discussions.

Testing and Certification

The DESGN Cisco training course is the recommended preparation for the 640-863 DESGN exam and helps to prepare candidates for their CCDA certification. Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI) and Designing Cisco Network Architectures (ARCH) are recommended for further study and form part of the Cisco Certified Design Professional (CCDP) Certification.
