Cisco is doing some major revamps when it comes to Cisco Design certifications , Cisco announced new version for their CCDA Certification from DESGN version 2.1 to 3.0.  It’s a welcome move from Cisco especially when technology is evolving so fast.

In the newly designed 300-320 ARCH exam Cisco has removed following topics

  •  Design for infrastructure services
  •  Identify network management capabilities in Cisco IOS Software
  •  Create summary-able and structured addressing designs
  • Describe IPv6 for campus design considerations
  • Describe the components and technologies of a SAN network
  • Create an effective e-commerce design
  • Create remote access VPN designs for the teleworker

Following topics are added to ARCH exam

  • Create stable, secure, and scalable routing designs for IS-IS
  • Determine IPv6 migration strategies
  • Design data center interconnectivity
  • Design data center and network integration
  • Select appropriate QoS strategies to meet customer requirements
  • Design end to end QoS policies
  • Design a network to support Network Programmability (SDN)
  • Describe network virtualization technologies for the data center


The interesting addition is the SDN part, this is a great move from Cisco.  I hope soon Cisco will release Cisco Press Study guides.
