Course Objectives

The Design of Cisco Enterprise Campus Networks

  • determine the appropriate logical and physical network segments and segmentation strategies in a given campus network infrastructure.
  • determine the appropriate transmission media, data-link protocols, and spanning-tree strategy in a given campus network infrastructure.
  • distinguish between Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching and determine which is the most appropriate for the individual submodules of the Campus Infrastructure module.
  • recognize the considerations involved in identifying an IP addressing strategy for the campus network.
  • select routing protocols to meet campus network requirements.
  • recognize suitable network designs for sample small, medium, and large campuses.
  • select the most effective Server Farm module design.
  • determine a campus network design to meet the needs of a given scenario.
