Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks v1.0 - ENSLD Course Outline

(5 Days)

Overview

In this 5-day course, Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks (ENSLD) v1.0,students will gain the knowledge and skills needed 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) v1.0course.

This course will help students:

  • Prepare to take the exam, Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks v1.0 (ENSLD 300-420), which is part of the CCNP Enterprise and Cisco Certified Specialist – Enterprise Design certifications. The ENSLD 300-420 exam certifies your knowledge of enterprise design including advanced addressing and routing solutions, advanced enterprise campus networks, WAN, security services, network services, and SDA.
