The functional layers that are designed to serve the needs of the data center are typically built around three layers: the core layer, the aggregation layer, and the access layer. In this course, you will explore these layers and learn about their use in the data center model. You will also learn about the functions of the topology layers in Cisco data center LAN and SAN networks. The Cisco Nexus 7000 Series create the network foundation for a unified fabric data center and high-end performance campus core. This course will also describe the features of the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series product and its relationship to the layer design model. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for Cisco exam 640-916: Introducing Cisco Data Center Technologies.
This course is targeted toward data center network engineers and learners embarking on a network administration or engineering career who wish to understand all the components that make up a real-world data center. In addition, anyone interested in the DCICT CCNA Data Center certification exam will benefit from this course. This course offers the official training for the Introducing Cisco Data Center Technologies (640-916 DCICT) certification exam which is a component exam for the CCNA Data Center certification.
