CS-CCNA-Data-Center v6.0 - Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Data Center Training Boot Camp v6.0

Duration: 5 days

Price: $3,995.00

DCAA v1.0 is an extended hours bootcamp class designed to convey the knowledge necessary to understand and work with Cisco data center technologies. Covering the architecture, components and features of the Nexus, UCS and MDS product lines. You will gain practical experience in the configuration and operation of virtual Port Channels (vPCs), FabricPath, Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV), and Fabric Extension (FEX). A current CCNA-RS, or commensurate knowledge, is a prerequisite for attendance. While the accelerated track is focused on a more hands on implementation based approach, the standard DCICN and DCICT is geared for a more introductory level of knowledge targeted for individuals who can perform only the more basic configuration tasks.

This boot camp prepares you for the following exams:

*Boot camp includes lunch, exam vouchers, and exam prep material where applicable.
