Overview/Description
Layer 2 switching involves processing frames with respect to their data link layer headers. This course will explore aspects of Cisco Nexus switch routing operations. You'll also learn about the routing process, protocols, and operations on Cisco Nexus switches, and how to configure routing and routing protocols. Access control lists (ACLs) can be used to classify IP packets and are applied on interfaces for specific directions. In this course, you'll learn about the operation of ACLs and how to configure IPv4 ACLs. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for Cisco exam 640-911: Introducing Cisco Data Center Networking.

Target Audience
Data center network engineers and learners embarking on a network administration or engineering career who wish to expand their skills in data center networks

Prerequisites
None
