Cisco Certification Design Associate (CCDA) The Associate-level certification are typically network design engineers, technicians, or support technicians. They are expected to design basic campus-type networks and be familiar with routing and switching, security, voice and video, wireless connectivity, and IP (both v4 and v6). They often work as part of a team with those who have higher-level Cisco certifications. Salary: $95,602 Top-Down Verses Bottom-up Network Design Top-down network design is an iterative process that recognizes a logical model and the physical design that can change as more or less information becomes available. Main goals of structured systems analysis. 1. Represent the user’s needs 2. Make the project manageable, using the latest techniques and tools available. Bottom-up network design is an unstructured approach to solving a network problem. This type of approach works on small or flat networks. Scalability isn’t a consideration when using this type of network design approach. Top-Down Network Design • Analyze your customers business goals. Business goals are the capability to run network applications to meet an organizations business objectives, within the business constraints. These constraints could be limited network personnel, budgets, and limited timeframe. • Good network design subscribes to the customers requirements to the letter. This would include business and technical goals, requirements for availability, scalability, affordability, manageability, and security needs. Some customers will specify a required level of network performance, referred to as service level. Top-Down Network Design • When a customer wants a quick fix design, it is referred to as a bottom-up network design. Associated with this type of design is unexpected scalability, poor performance, and does not meet the customers most important needs. • Top-down network design is a methodology for designing networks at the upper layers of the OSI model before referring to lower layers (devices, cabling, and switch configurations). • Top-down network design includes exploring organizational and group structures to find individuals the network is being designed to provide a services and from whom the design should get valuable information to make the design a success. Top-Down Network Design • Top-down network design is iterative. Initially, it is important to get the overall view of the customers requirements. Later, after digesting the high abstractions of the design, then focus on the finer details of the design like protocol behavior, scalability requirements, and technology preferences. Topdown network design recognizes that the logical model and the physical design can change as more information becomes available. • A top-down network design approach enables the designer to obtain “the big picture” initially, and the drilling down for specifics requirements and technical details. • Top-down network design is a methodology that grew out of structured software programming and structured systems analysis. Top-Down Network Design • Top-down network design divides the project up into small logical pieces known as modules. These modules allow large projects to be more manageable and easier to debug. Top-Down Network Design Modules are split into logical function entities. • The System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a top-down network design approach made up of four major phases and are carried out in a cyclical fashion: 1. Analyze requirements: Interview users and technical personal to gain an understanding of their business and technical goals for new or existing networks. 2. Develop the logical design: Logical topology for the new or existing network, security, switching, routing protocols. 3. Develop the physical design: This phase addresses the specific technologies and products that are realized in the logical design are selected. 4. Test, optimize, and document the design: Update the documentation that represents the network design, create test scenarios, build a prototype or pilot network, optimize the network design. Top-Down Network Design • The major phases of the top-down network design repeats itself. The user and the network monitoring suggest enhancements or the need for new specifications. Top-Down Network Design Network Design Plan Life Cycle (PDIOO) • Plan: Identify the network requirements in this phase. • Design: Complete the bulk of the logical and physical design. • Implement: Implement the building of the proposed network design. • Operate: Final test the effectiveness of the network design. This includes monitoring the network and services. • Optimize: This phase is based on actual operations. Identifying and resolving problems that were encountered. • Retire: When part or the whole network design no longer meets the needs of the company and users, this should be an avenue of consideration. This component is not officially part of the life cycle model. Top-Down Network Design The Plan Design Implement Operate Optimize (PDIOO) network life cycle is one of many types of network life cycles. It is irrelevant which life cycle is used, as long as long as the network design implements a network design that is structured, planned, modularized, and that feedback from the user is used to enhance the new network design. Top-Down Network Design Network Design Components • Analyzing Business Goals: Knowing your customers business goals and constraints. With a thorough understanding of your customers business objectives, you will be able to provide a network design that will meet your customers approval. • Working with Your Client: Research the type of business your client is in before meeting with them. Learn all that you can about his or her market, suppliers, services, and competitive advantage. • Changes in Enterprise Network: Internal users is limited for todays network needs. Your customer now has to think about remote entries both domestically, mobile access, RFS, and globally. Security is a topic that cannot be underestimated in our current network environment. • Network Must Make Sense; Business leaders today are more involved with IT decisions than past administrations. Customers want to operate leaner in data center personnel, power usage, and technology for technology’s sake. Top-Down Network Design Network Design Components • Networks Offer a service: IT departments are more service oriented than they use to be in the past. – Governance refers to a focus on consistent, cohesive, policies, and processes that protect an organization from mismanagement and illegal operations of users of IT services. – Compliance refers to adherence to regulations that protect against fraud and the disclosure of private customer data. • Need to Support Mobile Users: Network users expect network performance to be uniform , regardless of where the user or data resides. • The Importance of Network Security and Resiliency: Enterprises have to protect themselves from internal, web, and external from more areas than past environments. • Typical Network Design Business Goals: Listed on pages 13 and 14. Top-Down Network Design Identify the scope of the network design project. • Small in scope: Sales staff might be allowed to access the enterprise network via VPN • Large in scope: Engineering personal and remote access through the Enterprise Edge Network designers should ask their customers to help them understand the scope of the network design project.
