After I attended Orhan Ergun’s CCDE course I passed the CCDE practical exam.I really enjoyed the course a lot.
Before I signed up I didn’t know what to expect but it’s for sure a great design course and preparation for the CCDE exam. Mainly because of the interaction with Orhan who is really an expert in explaining all the different technologies and making perfect designs out of them.

I passed the CCDE Practical exam and Orhan’s CCDE course was very important contributor to my success. I attended the CCDE course of Orhan Ergun in July and it was exactly what I needed, Orhan is taking the pain to break down the different technologies.

I attended Orhan’s April 201610 days CCDE Bootcamp. I am CCDE now !
You can tell Orhan has a great deal of experience, it really comes through when he presents his design case studies and the CCDE Practical scenarios.

Your excellent CCDE materials and amazing Bootcamp helped me tremendously through my learning journey.Also thank you very much for being available whenever I have a design question or a complex design topics. I can’t compare your design skills and training with anyone in the industry.
I definitely strongly recommend you whoever wants to understand the network design in detail and wants to pass CCDE exam.
Reviews from the CCDEs who passed the CCDE Lab exam with this course
Thanks to Orhan for being the best CCDE instructor in the world. I highly recomend Orhan's CCDE Training and In-Depth-CCDE book.
Anyone who would like to learn network design or have the CCDE certificate should join his training.
He is really great mashallah, he's done many things for me. Thanks Orhan!
I attended to Online CCDE Bootcamp of Orhan. I want to thank Orhan not only for the great book and bootcamp, but also for his commitment, availability and willingness to assist the CCDE community on our journey -at any time.
The Online Bootcamp of Orhan was the cherry on the cake after finishing the book.
For any one working on the CCDE, I highly encourage you to use his book and bootcamp
I wanted to pass along my appreciation for the outstanding training material. I used the online CCDE training provided by Orhan as well as the In-Depth-CCDE book and passed the exam in February 2018.
Thanks again Orhan for your Instructor Led CCDE Bootcamp. .
I strongly recommend Orhan Ergun’s class if you want to pass the CCDE exam and learn network design.
Thanks Orhan for your all supports.
At the beginning of this CCDE course you many times are sitting thinking ‘I could solve this issue with some fancy trick/feature’, all because you keep thinking implementation. However as the course goes on Orhan is helping you to fill your new fancy design hat with all the important information not only for designing, meeting business requirements, but also dealing with the interaction of the protocols.
If you’re trying to get your head into a new hat, chasing the CCDE exam, or just wants to get on top with network design, I would go to Orhan today.
In this page you see the testimonials from the companies. I studied these companies networks before the training and we talked about their network design, possible new services , network optimisations , performance/availability/scalability improvements and the future plans during my five days Service Provider/Telco Network Design Training.

Your class was very useful and served as a valuable addition to my experience in telecommunications, architectures, quality of experience and content delivery networks.
I will definitely use the knowledge acquired to make more sound business decisions and investment as well optimize operations in my organizational unit with a fit for purpose network.
Most important is the approach in understanding exactly why a certain option has been chosen.
It was nice to be your student and enjoyed the MPLS TE technology and network design principles sections.
The network is about to evolve in design so I hope to be able to reach out to you and discuss various design and architecture options.
Your training was quite relevant and practical, since we were able to relate the theory covered to actual scenarios on our network and identify areas of improvement. Thanks also for your encouragement to start the CCDE journey and making it look achievable.
I attended Orhan Ergun CCDE course and I must say it was remarkable . It was well illustrated ,kin on current and advanced technologies .
He surpassed my expectation i.e. Quality , Depth of Knowledge, Well-structured online Resources and Quizzes . Intriguing eye-Opener!
