The one and only bootcamp on the market currently – focusing on designing campus, service provider and data center architectures. During intensive 6 day workshop, we’ll demonstrate and discuss topics related to designing scalable, highly available and secure networks. Workshop will be full of discussions in which we’ll deep dive into protocol design and it’s practical applicability to design. We will also go through major new trends in protocols, design and tools. During scenario discussions, instructors will detail real-life connections between theoretical protocol design and practical network services. This training helps to build solid understanding of how to build and operate routing policies, security solutions, comparing and analysing viable options for specific engagements. We’ll also go over migration scenarios, as greenfield networks are rarity today.
As bootcamp is focused on practical design scenarios, it’s focused on architects, designers and engineers that already have solid fundaments of networking and application knowledge on the level of current CCNA and CCNP certifications. Discussions and scenarios let students get a wide picture of the situation, understand all the possible approaches to solving the problem and then choose best solution. Bootcamp is focused on delivering practical, useable knowledge and is built on top of knowledge not readily available in books or other training material.
One of the highlights of the bootcamp are three CCIE/CCDE instructors, experts in their domains. As it’s built on workshop-style, students will have a lot of opportunities to discuss their own scenarios, or discuss projects, challenges and interesting cases from the instructors vast experience. This bootcamp is all about practical design skills, knowledge and experience. Pressure make diamonds, this bootcamp make Architects.
Bootcamp also helps to prepare for Design Cisco certifications, like CCDA, CCDP and CCDE.
There are no formal prerequisites for CCDE.
CCDE Practical Exam v2.0
Candidates must first pass a written qualification exam and then the corresponding practical exam. You must pass the practical exam within three years of passing the written exam in order to achieve certification. Your first lab attempt must be made within 18 months. CCDE certifications are valid for two years and must be recertified every two years thereafter. To recertify, pass ONE of the following before the certification expiration date:
- Pass any current CCIE Written Exam OR CCIE lab exam, or
- Pass the current CCDE Written Exam OR current CCDE Practical Exam, or
- Pass the Cisco Certified Architect (CCAr) interview AND the CCAr board review to extend lower certifications.
Cisco created the CCDE program to recognize senior-level network designers and architects. The program also gives senior operations and support network engineers a validated professional development path for moving into a network architecture role that participates in business strategy.
The CCDE certification is intended for candidates who have day-to-day responsibilities for designing an IP network.
Who Should Attend:
This certification is intended for candidates who have day-to-day responsibilities for designing an IP network. It recognizes senior-level infrastructure design and architecture expertise in the marketplace and gives senior operations and support network engineers a validated professional development path for moving into a network architecture role that participates in business strategy.
The CCDE Advanced Design Workshop will prepare candidates for the practical lab exam, which must be passed in order to achieve full CCDE certification.
Monday – Friday 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM
Saturday 9:00 AM – 12:00 Noon
- Design Principles -10 design rules, what is important in a network design, is the latency important? Design process and methodology, the worst design enemy.
- Security architecture and design principles based on the latest Cisco SAFE – This will cover different network areas (Edge, Campus, WAN, etc.) when security should be implemented and maps technologies/products (firewall, IPS, dot1x, VPN) to the respective places.
- ENT/SP – How SP Sec can protect enterprises? Using NetFlow/sFlow/jFlow technologies for telemetry & attack visibility with BGP sinkholing, BGP blackholing and use of BGP FlowSpec for specific flow targeting. Also, real use cases of IP Anycast deployment to protect and scale out services and virtualization techniques to provide separation of traffic planes (VLANs, VRFs, overlay networks – GRE/IPv6oIPv4 and VXLAN).
- ENT – Store&Forward, TCAM scenarios – This scenario describes the security design process for a big retailer. It involves technologies like DMVPN, GETVPN, FlexVPN, 802.1x to secure WAN and campus.
- ENT – Store&Forward, TCAM scenarios – TCAM Bank scenario is about implementing security in the Data Center environments with focus on both physical and virtual devices. Technologies included are firewalling, intrusion prevention, traffic separation, virtualization, data security, etc.
- SP – Scenario Long Cable, Carrier Eth – Carrier Ethernet scenario, how to build a loop free L2 network using xSTP, Open Loop Protocols, L2VPN, MPLS, how to design large scale L2 topologies, solving design concerns, important step to DCI.
- Data Center – Data Center L2 and L3 topologies, how to choose the right topology? Where to place the L2/L3 border? Where to place a default gateway – on a switch, router or firewall? Data Center architectures evolution, a role of xSTP and why we should restrict failure domain. Why and how to replace xSTP? Leaf and spine topology, overlay architectures. Comparison of Fabric Path/Trill, VPLS, OTV, EVPN, STT/VXLAN/NVGRE. Comparison of ACI, NSX, Contrail and Nuage. What are the best practices to connect two, three or more Data Centers? What are DC Interconnect options? Real-life examples and scenarios.
- Data Center – How to build active/active Data Centers? Do we really need a/a DC? What are the challenges of building a/a DC? How to steer egress and ingress traffic? HSRP localization and ingress optimization. Scenarios around designing multiple Data Centers and migration procedures. Security of North-South and East-West. How to avoid or deal with an asymmetric routing? How virtualization changes DC architecture, security, scalability, performance, availability? Data Center design including networking and security services like firewalls, IPS, AV, load-balancer, NAT, DNS, SSL offload.
- SP – internet adjacency inc. – We’re going to go through BGP best practices design overview, including Conferederations and Route Reflectors for scalability (and trends, like software virtualization for BGP RR deployments), options to speed up convergence (with BFD, next-hop tracking and optimization, BGP PIC and hierarchical FIBs), provide multipathing (BGP AddPath and ECMP load-balancing) and BGP traffic engineering at AS and inter-AS scale (with use of BGP attributes like AS_PATH, LOCALPREF, MED, but also with prefix aggregation and spliting).
- SP – internet adjacency inc. – MPLS/VPLS usage for typical scenarios, including migrations from pure IP to MPLS, mergers of different MPLS clouds, providing different logical topologies like hub & spoke (RD/RT imports/exports), and separation of customer services in own network for the sake of security.
