CCNA Data Center Bootcamp
Cisco Certified Network Associate Data Center


“This 5-day Bootcamp covers both the DCICN and DCICT classes and exams! Leave CCNA Data Center Certified– Guaranteed!” – Todd Lammle


Suggested Course Track:
ICND1/CCENTCCNACCNA Data Center

Course Description

This 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 Configuring hands-on with Nexus Switches!

This course then expands on what you learned, moving on to introducing you to unified computing system (UCS), unified fabric, and network services. You will learn about the Cisco® Nexus, MDS and UCS product families, and how they fit into Data Center network designs.

At the end of 5-days, you will achieve your certification by passing both Data Center exams – PASS GUARANTEED!
