Course Description

ECMS2 - Engineering Cisco Meraki Solutions 2

The course, Engineering Cisco Meraki Solutions Part 2 (ECMS2) v2.0 elevates your knowledge of Cisco® Meraki™ technology suite. In this advanced technical training course, you’ll learn how to plan for network deployments and integrations using the Cisco Meraki platform. Through practical hands-on instruction and experiences, you will learn how to operate Meraki networks and troubleshoot complex network incidents using the Meraki Dashboard and analytics. You will also learn how to design Meraki architectures for redundancy, high-density, and scalability by implementing comprehensive Meraki product features to meet design objectives.
This course is the second of two courses that prepares you for Cisco Meraki certification. This course will help you:
  • Acquire the advanced skills and techniques to plan, design, implement, and operate the complex Cisco Meraki platform for cloud-based network management
  • Prepare you for the upcoming Meraki certification(s)

Learning Objectives

  • Plan new Cisco Meraki architectures and expand existing deployments
  • Design the network for scalable management and high availability
  • Describe how to automate and scale Meraki deployments with dashboard tools
  • Use dynamic routing protocols to expand networks and improve WAN performance
  • Describe proper QoS, policy and performance-based routing configurations across a Cisco Meraki network and WAN optimization through traffic shaping
  • Describe Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Wide Area Network (WAN) topologies and how to integrate them
  • Secure, expand, and shape the network
  • Implement switched network concepts and practices, and configure guests networks Implement wireless configurations concepts and practices
  • Describe endpoint management concepts and practices using Cisco Meraki Systems Manager
  • Describe physical security concepts and practices
  • Gain network insight by monitoring applications
  • Describe how to prepare monitoring, logging, and alerting services
  • Set up reporting and auditing capabilities in the Cisco Meraki dashboard
  • Monitor and troubleshoot issues using Cisco Meraki tools
