The instructor-led Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks (ENSLD) training course promotes Cisco solutions in advanced addressing and routing solutions, advanced enterprise campus networks, WAN, security and network services, and Software-Defined Access.

This course prepares students for the Cisco CCNP Enterprise exam – ENSLD. Passing this exam along with the CCNP Enterprise core exam will earn students the Cisco CCNP Enterprise certification.

Course Instructor: Aaron Gould

Course Outline

01. Routed Protocols – Addressing

  • IPv4 addressing (create plan)
  • IPv6 addressing (create plan)
  • IPv6 migration methods (determine)

02. Routing Protocols – Secure and scale (create design)

  • IS-IS
  • OSPF
  • BGP – address families, attributes, filtering, RR’s, load sharing, balancing, symmetry

03. Enterprise Campus Networks (design)

  • HA – GR, FHRP’s
  • L2 – xSTP, loop prevention, convergence
  • L3 – convergence, vrf, redistribution, filtering, summarization
  • SD-Access architecture and design (describe) – underlay, overlay, control and data planes

04. WAN

  • options (compare) – L2/3 VPN’s, metro ethernet, DWDM, SD-Wan ce
  • site to site VPN (design) – L2/L3, GRE, DMVPN, GET VPN
  • HA (design) – single, multi, backup, failover
  • SD-WAN architecture and design (describe) – various planes, QoS, multicast

05. QoS

  • QoS strategies – IntServ/Diffserv (design)
  • End-to-End QoS – Classify, mark, shape, police, queue (design)
  • Network management techniques, out-of-band, in-band (design)

06. Multicast

  • Concepts – source/shared trees, RPF, RP (describe)
  • Services – PIM bi-dir, SSM, MSDP (design)

07. Automation

  • YANG data models (IETF, Openconfig, Cisco native) – recognize differences
  • Netconf and Restconf – recognize differences
  • Telemetry model-driven (periodic/on-change publication and dial-in/dial-out) – recognize differences and impact
