ENSLD: Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks

The Designing Cisco Enterprise Networks (ENSLD) v1.0 course gives you the knowledge and skills you need 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) v1.0 course.

This course also helps you prepare to learn the skills, technologies and best practices needed to design an enterprise network, to deepen your understanding of enterprise design including advanced addressing and routing solutions, advanced enterprise campus networks, WAN, security services, network services, and software-defined access SDA.

Also, this course helps you to 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.

Audience
