The Designing Cisco Network Service Architectures (ARCH) course enables learners to perform the conceptual, intermediate, and detailed design of a network infrastructure that supports desired network solutions over intelligent network services, in order to achieve effective performance, scalability, and availability. This course enables learners, by applying solid Cisco network solution models and recommended design practices, to provide viable, stable enterprise internetworking solutions.

The course presents concepts and examples that are necessary to design converged enterprise networks. Advanced network infrastructure technologies, such as virtual private networks (VPNs) and other security solutions, are also covered.

Target Audience

This course is designed for:

  • Individuals seeking the Cisco CCDP certification and those working toward the Cisco CCDE certification
  • Presales and postsales network engineers that are involved in network design, planning, and implementation
  • Network administrators and designers that are responsible for designing and implementing the enterprise network


Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Introduce the Cisco Network Architectures for the Enterprise and explain how this concept addresses enterprise network needs for performance, scalability, and availability
  • Describe how the Cisco Network Architectures for the Enterprise can be used as a framework for designing enterprise networks
  • Create conceptual, intermediate, and detailed enterprise campus network designs
  • Create conceptual, intermediate, and detailed enterprise data center design
  • Create conceptual, intermediate, and detailed enterprise edge and remote infrastructure designs
  • Create conceptual, intermediate, and detailed network service designs for security considerations
  • Create conceptual, intermediate, and detailed VPN designs
