Course Description

Updated on 18 AUG 2016( Added lectures on FHRP ) - FIFTH UPDATE

Cisco Nexus- The most popular, Demanding and Critical Hardware being used in Worldwide Datacenters.

When I launched my earlier courses- I was asked by students to prepare course on Cisco Nexus as this was not available in market. After spending over a month on Real Cisco Nexus 7000 and 5000 devices- This course is Ready for all of you and Note one thing- You will keep on getting new and updated lectures in this course- ONLY when you are subscribed to it.

All of my Labs have been implemented and Configured on Real Cisco Nexus 7010 and 5K Devices.

I would say it is just the beginning of my courses in this most robust Cisco Nexus Devices.

I am pretty certain that you will NOT get this kind of advanced course anywhere - that too at this unbelievable price ( Never Before ! )

Most of you must be working on DC environments where you will probably have Nexus Devices- But problem that we get is no experience on these critical devices. Now, you will get all commands , features and detailed explanation which will make you a Nexus Professional Engineer.

What are the requirements?

  • OSI Model, Routing Protocols, Switching Technologies, Port channels, RSTP, Subnetting
  • Students should be having understanding of Basic to Medium Size Network

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Students will get to know Functionality of Nexus 7000 , 5000 and 2000 FEX devices
  • They will get to know Difference of Command Line of NX-OS vs IOS
  • Most of the Nexus Features will be covered which will make students comfortable operating these highly Critical Datacenter Devices

What is the target audience?

  • Students who have experience of Cisco Switches and Routers should go for this Cisco Nexus NX-OS Lab course
  • Network students who are aspiring to work in Datacenter Networks should apply for this.
  • Students should have uderstanding on IOS, STP, Port channels, OSI Model, Subnetting can apply for this

What you get with this course?
