Cisco DESGN 2.1: Designing Basic Campus and Data Center Networks
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
The availability of multigigabit campus switches enables organizations to build high-performance, highly reliable networks. When you follow a systematic network design approach, then performance, reliability, and manageability are achievable. This module describes a hierarchical campus network design approach called multilayer design. Multilayer design is modular, so organizations can increase their network capacity as needed. A multilayer campus design is based on a known campus topology, which aids in troubleshooting.
This course will look at network infrastructure design for two places in the network that use the multilayer campus design: the enterprise campus and the enterprise data center. The course first introduces general campus switching design considerations. In addition, the course describes the switching modularity and scalability options that are appropriate for situations ranging from building-sized networks to large campus networks and design considerations for the enterprise data center.
