CID Course Description

Full perspective of the design of a Cisco enterprise network comprised of routers and LAN switches.

Part of the design curriculum. This 5 day course is designed for people with an introductory knowledge of Cisco networks who wish to learn more about how to design a network. It is also one of the courses leading to CCDP certification.

Course Content
The CID course provides students with the knowledge and skills to effectively troubleshoot and resolve problems on Cisco networks. In the course, students will develop a functional understanding of the standard problem-solving model, common network troubleshooting tools, and the diagnostic tools provided with Cisco software to analyze and resolve network problems in IP, WAN, Novell IPX, and AppleTalk environments.

Course Objectives
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Perform a needs analysis as part of a network design project. The analysis will identify key technical, business, and administrative issues that drive the design.
  • Use different technology options to meet identified needs including media, internetworking equipment, topologies, and internetworking system software.
  • Utilize the available Cisco hardware and software products to develop a complete internetwork design solution.

    Who Should Attend
    Internetwork designers and systems engineers with a high level of experience implementing networks, who also have advanced positions responsible for designing architectures for complex, multi-protocol internetworks.

    You should have a working knowledge of theoretical and hands-on experience with multiprotocol internetworks. You should also have an understanding of typical routing algorithms, including distance vector, link state, split horizon, and the concept of convergence. You should also have a detailed understanding of the IP protocol, including addressing, subnetting, and routing protocols such as RIP, IGRP, and OSPF. You should be able to recognize routing and bridging issues in the AppleTalk, IPX, and NetBIOS environments. In addition, you should have a good working knowledge of WAN protocols including Frame Relay, ISDN and X.25, and an understanding of typical bridging algorithms, including source-route bridging, transparent bridging, and the spanning-tree algorithm. Finally, you should also have a working knowledge of protocol behavior, such as broadcasting, multicasting, keepalives, flow control, resource discovery, connectionless versus connection-oriented services, connection establishment, and media access methods.
