Cisco Data Center CCIE Unified Fabric Workshop v1.0 - DCXUF

Cisco Data Center CCIE Unified Fabric Workshop v1.0 - DCXUF Course Description

Duration: 5.00 days (40 hours)

Cisco Career Guide

The instructor-led Cisco Data Center CCIE Unified Fabric Workshop (DCXUF) v1.0 is designed for candidates who are preparing to take the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert - Data Center Certification lab exam.

This course will challenge students with complex lab scenarios that provide a deep dive into the detailed configuration and optimization of protocols and features found in the data center unified fabric. Topics include configuration of Cisco unified fabric features available in NX-OS, encompassing both the Cisco Nexus and Cisco MDS platforms. The labs provide detailed insight into the areas defined in the Cisco Data Center Infrastructure - NXOS and Cisco Storage Networking Cisco CCIE DC Lab exam topics.

Although approximately 80 percent of the course consists of labs, instructors will provide students:

An understanding of how to interpret Cisco exam questions
A detailed solution for each challenge
Examples of common mistakes, troubleshooting techniques, and validation

As students learn their weaknesses, instructors will offer chalk talks to help candidates better understand protocols and work through deficiencies.
