WAN Design Experts typically possess a bachelor’s degree in computer science, information technology or a similar discipline in addition to a certification in CCNA, MCSE or CompTIA Network+. They should also possess extensive knowledge of applications and network troubleshooting and should be fluent in the three main operating systems; Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

It’s also beneficial for WAN Design experts to possess knowledge of network engineering and have a practical working knowledge of current network protocols such as TCP/IP, Ethernet, and common internet standards. Use of automation tools such as Chef, Ansible and Puppet, and popular office productivity tools such as Office 365, are also a bonus.

The need for computer network architects is expected to rise six percent from 2016 till 2026. As large enterprises continue to grow and smaller businesses seek to prepare their networking infrastructure for scalability, demand for WAN Design Experts will be at an all-time high in the coming years which makes it an excellent job opportunity as both a freelance and permanent position.
