Course Content

The DCNI-1 course will teach you to build scalable, reliable, and intelligent Data Center networks using Catalyst 6500 Series switches. You will deploy an efficient and expandable enterprise network using Catalyst 6500, 4900, and the Data Center Infrastructure Module of the Enterprise Composite Network Model (ECNM). Explore the capabilities and performance considerations of the Catalyst 6500 Series switch supervisor modules including Sup720-3B/BXL, Sup32-PISA, and Sup720-10G-3C/CXL.

In class you will identify and implement traffic flows including FWSM routed/transparent modes, supervisor based packet acceleration, and FWSM—PISA integration and describe the multiple contexts concept, and how multiple contexts are provisioned and managed on FWSM.[\justify]
