Configuring Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches v3.1 (DCNX7K)

Configuring Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches v3.1 (DCNX7K)

Overview

Duration: 5 days

The Configuring Cisco Nexus 7000 Switches (DCNX7K) v3.1 course is a 5-day ILT training program that is designed for systems and field engineers who install and implement Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches. This course covers the key components and procedures you need to know to configure, manage, and troubleshoot the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switch platform.

Configuring Cisco Nexus 7000 Switches (DCNX7K) v3.1 prepares you for implementing a Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switches in the data center solution.  This update to the course will include coverage of new features introduced in Cisco NX-OS 6.2.and will also include introductory coverage of Cisco Nexus Series Switches.

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 7000 Series Switches features.

The course focuses on the product hardware, its architecture, key features, and market differentiators, with extensive feature configuration and hands on labs.  As the DCNX7K v3.1 class is a product training class, it is expected that as new features or hardware are released, that additional modules or lessons will be developed rapidly and included as addendum or inclusions to the material to ensure that the class is kept up-to-date.
