About this Course

The course material makes the student learn the important concepts and procedures to install, configure, manage, and troubleshoot Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switches and Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders residing in the LAN, SAN, and unified fabric environments.

The course material has been redesigned as a lab-based course, with two-thirds of the students’ overall class time invested in performing various lab activities. In other words, around 3-4 hours of lab material and 2-3 hours of lecture material will be covered in each ILT class.

It can be expected that the technology content will be confined to the prerequisite material. While the course structure has been built in accord with the Cisco Configuration Guides.

Each module, as much as allowed, is a standalone module with respect to every other module.

Every student is required to perform one lab while configuring an entire pod for virtual training reasons. The labs will be scaled by two students for each pod in an ILT delivery.

Each lab exercise is free from dependency on the previous labs. There is a requirement for configurations scripts, and a reset process is in place to create a current lab's context before the student starts undergoing any lab exercise or activity.

Each lab activity must be associated with the student's own pod environment and should be free from other students’ pod activities.

A professional Cisco Systems Engineer earns an average salary of $120,003 per year.
