DCAC9K Training

Configuring Cisco Nexus 9000 Switches in ACI Mode (DCAC9K v3.x) is a five-day instructor-led course that covers the key components and procedures that Field Engineers, Systems Engineers, and Systems Administrators need to know in order to understand, deploy, configure, and manage Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) mode, as well as how to connect the ACI fabric to external networks and services.

This training features ACI APIC v3.x.

Note: If you’re looking for in-depth knowledge related to 9K NXOS Mode, VXLAN, and Cisco's onePK, then we recommend that you take DCINX9K - Cisco Nexus 9000 Design and Configuration before taking this course.
