Managing LAN Infrastructure with Cisco Data Center Network Manager V1.1 (DCNML)


Managing LAN Infrastructure with Cisco Data Center Network Manager V1.1 (DCNML)

What you’ll learn in this course

The course, LAN Infrastructure Management with Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNML) v1.0 improves your knowledge of LAN infrastructure management with Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) which implements a herringbone and leaf network fabric using DCNM with Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN), Ethernet VPN (EVPN) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). You will learn how the integration of the thorn-and-leaf network fabric with the Cisco Data Center Network Manager increases overall data center infrastructure uptime and reliability, thereby improving continuity. of the business. It provides a robust framework and comprehensive feature set that meets the routing, switching, and storage management needs of data centers. Cisco DCNM streamlines provisioning for Unified Fabric and monitors SAN (Storage Area Network) and LAN (Local Area Network) components.
