DCNXA 1.0 – Implementing Cisco Nexus 9000 Switches in NX-OS Mode – Advanced
4 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Data Center Switching

Course Details

The Implementing Cisco Nexus 9000 Switches in NX-OS Mode – Advanced (DCNXA) v1.0 course provides advanced training in applying and managing the Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches in NX-OS mode. The Cisco® NX-OS platform deploys Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) and Ethernet VPN (EVPN) using Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM), implements Multi-Site VXLAN EVPN, and integrates L4-L7 services into the fabric providing external connectivity, utilizing advanced tenant features. You will also learn how to implement Cisco NX-OS Enhanced Policy-Based Redirect (ePBR) and Intelligent Traffic Director (ITD) features.

This course will help you:

  • Learn how you can integrate Cisco Nexus 9000 Switches in NX-OS mode to manage your enterprise IT environment
