DCNX5K v3.0 - Configuring Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switches Training

Description

Configuring Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switches (DCNX5K) v3.0 is a 5 day ILT training program designed to serve the needs of systems and field engineers, consulting systems engineers, technical solutions architects, and Cisco integrators and partners who install and implement Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switches and Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders. This course covers the key components and procedures required to configure, manage, and troubleshoot these Cisco Nexus platforms.

A certification exam is not associated with this course, and Channel Partner deployment engineers will use this training as augmentation to the DCUFI course material to provide in-depth experience in implementing the Cisco Nexus family product features.

This is the third release of material covering the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switches and Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extender product families. The course focuses on the product hardware, its architecture, key features, and market differentiators, with extensive feature configuration and hands on labs.

Objectives

After completing this course the student should be able to:

  • Configure Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switches.
