The five-day Configuring Cisco Nexus 7000 Switches (DCNX7K) course covers the key components and procedures needed to install, configure, manage, and troubleshoot the Cisco Nexus 7000 Switch. Through hands-on labs using Nexus Operating System (NX-OS) version 6.2(6b) code, you will gain an understanding of the day-to-day operation of the switches, including key features and functions.

Additionally, we have enhanced the standard Cisco labs to include more in-depth exploration of sought-after technologies including FabricPath, Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV), Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP), virtual Port Channel (vPC), Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Quality of Service (QoS), and troubleshooting. All configurations are performed on the Nexus 7000, with the latest version of the NX-OS code, 6.2(6b).
