Network Training Center

The Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCII) course is designed to help students prepare for the Cisco CCNP® Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles. The focus of this skills-building course is implementation of LANs, SANs, and data center unified fabric using Cisco MDS switches, Cisco Nexus switches, and Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders (FEXs). The course provides rich hands-on experience with implementing Cisco data center infrastructure. You’ll master the professional-level skills and technologies needed to implement Cisco data center infrastructure, including key protocols, routing and switching protocols, maintenance, management, operations, security, and storage.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

▪ Configure Rapid PVST+, MST and available STP options

▪ Configure FEX in static, dynamic, and enhanced vPC setup

▪ Configure port channels and virtual port channels

▪ Implement FabricPath and describe DFA

▪ Configure OTV and VXLAN

▪ Describe LISP

▪ Configure first hop redundancy protocols

▪ Configure routing on a Cisco Nexus switch

▪ Implement multicast functionality in a Cisco Data Center network architecture

▪ Manage user accounts, SSH, and AAA on Cisco NX-OS

▪ Describe and configure system security features

▪ Perform basic Fibre Channel configuration

▪ Manage FC domains

▪ Configure port security and fabric binding

▪ Describe and configure FCoE

▪ Describe and configure distributed device aliases

▪ Describe and configure zoning

▪ Configure NPIV and NPV

▪ Describe and configure FCIP

▪ Configure system management and infrastructure monitoring

▪ Configure infrastructure monitoring and programmability
