Introducing Cisco Data Center Networking Training

Introducing Cisco Data Center Networking Training (DCICN)


Introducing Cisco Data Center Networking Training Course Project-Based

This Introducing Cisco Data Center Networking Training course introduces you to the Cisco technologies that are deployed in the Data Center. The introductory level of content is focused on basic concepts like Ethernet, the OSI Layer Model, and TCP/IP. It then takes you through basic configuration tasks, including VLANs, network addressing, and subnet masks. Together with Introducing Cisco Data Center Technologies (DCICT), this course prepares you for the CCNA Data Center certification.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
