So many students have written me excited for the upcoming Cisco Certified Design Associate (CCDA) 5 day online bootcamp. In this blog post I want to provide everyone with a preview of some of the hugely valuable content in this course.

  • Ethernet segments should not feature a sustained utilization of 40% or higher
  • All Ethernet segments should be switched – no shared segments (hub-based)
  • No WAN links should feature a sustained utilization of 70% or higher
