This course introduces the deployment of Layer 2 and Layer 3 features in a VDX switch Ethernet fabric. It is designed to help an administrator configure and manage the layer 3 capabilities of an Ethernet fabric-based network.

Before taking this course, students should have working knowledge of:

VDX products

Networking Foundations or equivalent knowledge

Acquired 80% or more knowledge self-assessment on Networking Foundations Course

Working knowledge of Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocols

Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:

Install and configure a VCS Fabric

Configure the VCS parameters to create a VCS Fabric

Configure features such as VLANs, Spanning Tree, vLAGs, breakout ports

Configure other features such as SNMP, NTP, sFLOW, AAA, 802.1x and syslog

Explain VCS Fabric features such as TRILL, DCB, ETS, PFC and FSPF

Explain traffic flow through a VCS Fabric

Explain the steps to upgrade firmware

Explain the Layer 3 processing and forwarding of traffic within a VCS fabric

Describe and configure Automatic Migration of Port Profiles (AMPP) in a VCS fabric

Describe the Layer 3 protocols supported in NOS and the various VDX switches

Describe and configure Layer 3 protocols in a VCS fabric using VDX switches

Discuss and deploy Layer 3 security and traffic control features in a VCS fabric

Discuss and deploy Layer 3 redundancy and dynamic routing protocols in a VCS fabric

Describe additional Layer 3 features including multitenancy and flow control

Explain and configure fault detection protocols in a VCS fabric

Identify the concepts and protocols used to deploy an IP Fabric on VDX switches

Discuss best practices when deploying a Layer 3 solution in a VCS fabric
