Introduction to Cisco Data Center Networking & Technologies (DCICN+DCICT) Bootcamp (DCINT)

Course Length: 5 Days

In this accelerated course students will be introduced to the three primary technologies that are used in the Cisco data center. Students will become familiar with Cisco technologies that are deployed in the Data Center: 
  • unified computing
  • unified fabric
  • network services. 
Through hands-on labs, students will focus on monitoring and reviewing configurations associated with these technologies. The course labs will focus on verifying configurations, with selected exercises involving making configuration changes and implementing new topologies.

Course Objectives

  • How a network works
  • Configure, verify, and troubleshoot a switch with VLANs and interswitch communications
  • Implement an IP addressing scheme and IP services to meet network requirements
  • Configure, verify, and troubleshoot routing operations on Cisco Nexus switches
  • Describe and verify Cisco data center fundamentals
  • Verify Cisco data center virtualization
  • Verify Cisco data center storage networking
  • Verify Cisco data center unified fabric
  • Describe and verify Cisco UCS


 Skills that a student must have before attending this course are as follows:

  • Basic computer literacy
  • Basic PC operating system navigation skills 
  • Basic Internet usage skills
  • Basic IP address knowledge

Intended Audience

  • Network administrators
  • Network engineers
