Cisco Design Certification Training

Welcome to the NC-Expert Design and Architecture Portfolio

We are excited to share with you the industry's most comprehensive Cisco Design and Architecture portfolio available today!

We pride ourselves on being the top Global Training and Consulting Company focused on the Enterprise. We wanted to do more to expand our capability to create the kind of Experts companies need today when approaching the aggressive evolution of cross architecture and converged infrastructures.

To solve this we have partnered with the best CCDE Trainer in the market, Orhan Ergun. In the almost 10 years since the CCDE Certification was created there have only been 291 people that have reached this highest level of certification, that's less than 30 per year. Orhan began his program less than three years ago and already over 5% of these are a result of attending his training program. That's more than 15 certified so far and growing, his program is now responsible for producing more than 20% of the CCDEs each year.

We are now announcing the most comprehensive CCDA, CCDP and CCDE program in the market. We have taken Cisco's Authorized CCDA and CCDP courses and expanded them to include updated and relevant design and architecture content usually only seen at the CCDE level.

Our goal is simple help our customers become more relevant and in-demand to the market by transferring the skills so desperately needed today.

Corporations need Engineers and Architects that understand multiple technologies, solutions and approaches when designing end-to-end architectures to handle the Digital Transformation that will take place for the next ten years.


CCDA

Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) validates apprentice knowledge required to design a Cisco converged network. With a CCDA certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to design routed and switched network infrastructures and services involving LAN, WAN, and broadband access for businesses and organizations. The CCDA curriculum includes designing basic campus, data center, security, voice, and wireless networks.

This five-day course will enable learners to gather customer internetworking requirements, identify solutions, and design the network infrastructure and elements to ensure the basic functionality of the proposed solutions. The purpose of this course is to provide learners with the knowledge and skills to achieve associate-level competency in network design. Most of the Cisco Design Specializations list having a CCDA certification as one of the prerequisites.



(DESGN) Designing for Cisco Internetwork Solutions

This five-day course teaches you to gather customer internetworking requirements, identify solutions, and design the network infrastructure and elements to ensure the basic functionality of the proposed solutions. The purpose of this course is to provide learners with the knowledge and skills to achieve associate-level competency in network design. Most of the Cisco Design Specializations list having a CCDA certification as one of the prerequisites.

  • Discuss methodology in network design
  • Describe how to structure and modularize the network design using the Cisco Enterprise Architecture
  • Design the enterprise campus and enterprise data center modules
  • Design the remote connectivity modules as needed
  • Design a network addressing plan and select a suitable routing protocol for a given network design
  • Evaluate security solutions for the network
  • Discuss the design implications of voice transport across the network
  • Discuss the design implications of wireless networking
  • Describe additional resources that support configuring and implementing the network design

NC-Expert goes beyond the above content and provides you real-world advanced scenarios to push your ability to think out of the box to help you begin your journey to becoming a cross-architecture multi-disciplied engineer.

Courses are taught by CCIE and CCDE level instructors, ensuring you are learning from people that have personally created designs and architectures for numerous corporations.

CCDP

To reach CCDP Certification you must first have the CCDA Certification and then successfully pass the three exams associated with the CCDP Level Courses.

  • Valid CCDA Collaboration
  • Pass EXAM 300-101 ROUTE
  • Pass Exam 300-115 SWITCH
  • Pass Exam 300-320 ARCH

(ARCH) Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures v3.0

This 5-day course will discuss the design of Interior Gateway Routing Protocols (OSFP and EIGRP), Exterior Gateway Routing Protocols (BGP), WAN, data center connectivity, security, QoS, transition to IPv6, and multicast.

This course will enable students to perform the conceptual, intermediate and details design of a network infrastructure that supports desired network solutions over intelligent network services, to achieve effective performance, scalability and availability.

ARCH teaches you to apply solid Cisco network solution models and recommended design practices, to provide stable Enterprise networking solutions. The course presents concepts and examples necessary to design converged enterprise networks. New in version 3.0 is the addition of content addressing software defined networks (SDN).

  • Design enterprise connectivity and high-availability
  • Design enterprise BGP connectivity
  • Design enterprise WAN connectivity
  • Design enterprise data center integration
  • Design security services in an enterprise network
  • Design QoS for optimized user experience
  • Design enterprise transition to IPv6
  • Design enterprise multicast network

(ROUTE) Implementing Cisco IP Routing v2.0

ROUTE is a required course for both CCDP and CCNP R&S.

In this course, you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to plan, implement, and monitor a scalable routed network. You will focus on routing protocols for both IPv4 and IPv6: EIGRP and OSPF for an enterprise and BGP for enterprise Internet connectivity. You will also learn how to redistribute routes, implement path control, and secure Cisco routers.

  • Describe routing protocols, different remote connectivity options, and their impact on routing and implementing RIPng
  • Configure EIGRP in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Configure OSPF in IPv4 and IPv6 environments
  • Implement route redistribution using filtering mechanisms
  • Implement path control using policy-based routing and IP SLA
  • Implement enterprise Internet connectivity
  • Secure Cisco routers according to best practices and configure authentication for routing protocols
