Kickstart your Microsoft Exam AZ-700 Designing and Implementing Microsoft Azure Networking Solutions preparation and build the beginning foundation for your journey to becoming a Microsoft Certified Azure Network Engineer Associate.

According to Microsoft, most of the Microsoft Azure support issues concern networking. Why? Because the subject is inherently complex, especially in cloud computing's software defined networking (SDN) architecture. Learn what to expect on the AZ-700 exam, and how to pass it.


This course teaches network engineers the AZ-700 coverage: how to design, implement, and maintain Azure networking solutions. This course covers the process of designing, implementing, and managing core Azure networking infrastructure, hybrid networking connections, load balancing traffic, network routing, private access to Azure services, and network security and monitoring. The learner will gain knowledge on how to design and implement a secure, reliable network infrastructure in Azure and how to establish hybrid connectivity, routing, private access to Azure services, and monitoring in Azure.
