Implementing Cisco Networking Solutions

Key FeaturesImplement cisco’s networking solutions on Data Center, Wireless, Cloud, Security and MobilityLeverage Cisco IOS to manage the network infrastructures.A practical guide that will show how to troubleshoot the common issues on the network.Book DescriptionMost enterprise use Cisco networking equipment to design and implement their networks. However, some networks outperform the networks in other enterprises in terms of performance and meeting new business demands, because they were designed for the present, keeping the future in mind.The book will start by describing the various stages in the network lifecycle from capturing requirements, to designing and implementing the network, and finally operating and optimizing the network. It will focus on the multiple parts of the Enterprise network, and the technologies/ protocols that can be used in each part. Then it will talk in detail about the technologies/ design choices for the wired and wireless users in the Local Area Network/ campus network. Additionally, it will describe the various Data center options and technologies, and the options on how to connect various remote offices across the Wide Area Network (WAN). Furthermore, it would highlight the need for identifying business critical applications on the network, and how to prioritize these applications by deploying Quality of Service on the network. It would end with describing the various techniques for securing the network on the forwarding plane, control plane and the management plane.By the end, you will abe to outline an approach to network operations, and describe the various parameters and best practices to ensure smooth network operations.What you will learnUnderstand the Network Lifecycle approachGet to know the traits of a good network designDesign components and technology choices at various places in the network (PINS)Work on the sample configurations for the network devices in the LAN/ WAN/ DC, and wireless domainGet familiar with the configurations and best practices for Securing the networkExplore the best practices for Network Operations About the AuthorHarpreet Singh has more than 20 years of experience in the Data domain, and has been designing and implementing networks and solutions across technologies from X.25, FR, ATM, TCP/IP, MPLS based networks. Harpreet is a B.E. (Electronics & Electrical Communications). He has been a part of the faculty at Advanced Level Telecom Training Center, a premier institute under the UNDP program for training of Telecom officers, where he imparted training on Data Networks including technologies like X.25, Frame Relay, ATM, Siemens Switches, and IP networks.Harpreet has been a part of the core team for 5 pan-India network rollouts ranging from plain IP, to Carrier Ethernet and MPLS. He was the network architect for the first pan-IndiaIP network in 1997, first MPLS network rollout in India in 2002, the largest MetroE deployment in the word at the time in 2004. He was the Technical Director for the largest ever mobile backhaul IP network based on IP/ MPLS network. He is currently a Technology Consultant at Cisco Systems engaged in large and complex cross-technology projects for strategic customers, advising them on network design, operations, and digital transfromations.Harpreet has been a speaker on forums like APRICOT, IETE, and other International conferences.He can be reached at
