Started my reading for the CCDA exam, a few important terms from the first chapter:
PPDIOO (Prepare, Plan, Design, Implement, Operate, and Optimize) – PPDIOO is basically an simple process which CISCO uses in deploying or managing services/technologies for a new or existing network.
NBAR – A classification tool which is used to mark the type of applications traversing the network and providing priority per the need of the specific application.
NetFlow – A monitoring tool that gives great granularity of input/output traffic on an ip network.
Policy Control – Policies give us better control of managing and monitor our networks.
Virtualization – With the growth of our networks and the great processing power of our CPU’s we are able to virtualize our networks which gives great management power and ease of troubleshooting as everything is centralized.
