Course Overview

Course Duration: 
DCXUF - Cisco Data Center CCIE Unified Fabric Workshop - This course will cover configuration the Cisco Nexus portfolio Unified Fabric features available in NX-OS. The labs will provide detailed insight into the areas defined under the topics of Cisco Data Center Unified Fabric as outlined under the topics of Cisco Data Center Infrastructure - NXOS and Cisco Storage Networking Cisco CCIE DC Lab Blueprint. Although approximately 80% of the course consists of labs, instructors will provide you with an understanding in how to interpret Cisco exam questions, a detailed solution for each challenge, common mistakes, troubleshooting techniques, and validation. As you discover areas in which your understanding might be weak, instructors help you better understand protocols and work through deficiencies.

Who Should Attend

  • Network administrators 
  • Network, engineers, systems engineers, and consulting systems engineers 
  • Technical solutions architects 
  • Cisco integrators/partners
