The Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks (ENSLD) course gives you the knowledge and skills you need to design an enterprise network. This course serves as a deep dive into enterprise network design and expands on the topics covered in the Implementing and Operating Cisco® Enterprise Network Core Technologies (ENCOR) course.
This course also helps you prepare to take the exam, Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks (ENSLD 300-420), which is part of the CCNP® Enterprise and Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Design certifications.
This course will help you:
- Learn the skills, technologies, and best practices needed to design an enterprise network.
- Deepen your understanding of enterprise design including advanced addressing and routing solutions, advanced enterprise campus networks, WAN, security services, network services, and software-defined access SDA.
- Validate your knowledge and prepare to take the Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks v1.0 (ENSLD 300-420) exam.
After completing this course, you should be able to:
- Design Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) internal routing for the enterprise network
