Detailed Course Description

The Cisco Data and Storage boot camp is specially designed for the network field engineers who are ready to further their education and Cisco training. This course helps them to prepare to take the Cisco exam to qualify them to become Cisco Data Center Networking Infrastructure Support Specialist. This course usually takes up to five days to complete, however; the course has been compacted to take only three days total. Upon completion of this course, the engineer will be fully qualified to further his or her career and the credits go toward completion of the Cisco training.

In this boot camp style class, the engineer will learn how to operate Cisco catalyst 6500 and 4900 series switches by gaining knowledge in the architecture of the switches while learning about the evolution of the data center, enterprise composite network model and the data center architecture. In addition, the attendee will also learn how to operate the Cisco 4900 series by learning also about its architecture. The attendee will also gain valuable knowledge in the Catalyst 6500 family as well as how to utilize the catalyst 4900 and 6500 in a data center type network as well as the blade switches, and catalyst 6500 series switches. The engineer will also have training in the Catalyst 6500 series switch module and power supply options with an emphasis in line cards overview, architecture and design considerations. These trainings are on top of the training received in deploying line cards and service modules overviews and various training in furthering the knowledge of various power supplies. The attendee will also gain more knowledge in how to implement the VSS 1440 by learning its architecture and operation as well as how to deploy and configure the VSS 1440. The attendee will also learn how to use advanced diagnostics and monitoring available in the Catalyst 6500. These trainings provide further education in configuring EEM, automated diagnostics, configuring SPSN, RSPAN and ERSPAN. Next, the attendee learns the fundamentals of implementing FWSM for a data network infrastructure. This set of trainings include implementing various traffic flows and includes firewall training, FWSM architecture, FWSM initial configuration as well as various firewall modes and configuring various translations. These trainings are on top of how to configuring AAA services and access for the management. Routing implementation is also a part of this training with emphasis on how to configure static routing as well as dynamic routing. On top of these trainings, the attendee will also gain extensive knowledge in Implementing network analysis with NAM and how to configure NetFlow and NDE as well as training in network traffic monitoring, NAM service modules, NAM data sources and how to make a plan to deploy NAM. Other features the attendee can expect from this class are how to implement the NAM installation and initial configuration.

In addition to the classroom format, additional labs are also required. These labs enhance the learning experience by giving the attendee more hands on training, as well as simulations of the material they learned in the classroom. This will help the attendee to be better prepared to implement the tools they have learned the last couple days in the classroom. These interactive labs include deploying the VSS 1440 system, Deploying QoS, Using virtualization on the FWSM, deploying the FWSM in transparent mode and using multiple contexts on the FWSM. These labs complete with the classroom experience will enhance the knowledge the engineer has gained throughout previous Cisco classes, enabling them to be ready for the next career advancement. These trainings will also assist the company to maintain the latest technology in Cisco systems, ensuring the company will not experience any problems with the system, and if they do, their network field engineers will be fully qualified and prepared to handle any problem that may arise.

See what our students are saying about our training:

The instructor was the best teacher I have ever had at any level. I learned more in the last 7 days than I did studying on my own for the past 6 months. The material was presented in a way that was easy for everyone to understand. He by far had the most knowledge of anyone I have ever met in the subject and I hope to learn more from him in the future.

The instructor for this course was very knowledgeable of the material and real world experiences to draw from. Couldn't have asked for any more material. The lab simulator (Cisco's packet tracer) was quick and easy to obtain.

- Jeffrey Mattson

I loved having the option of exchanging bulky textbooks with Kindle books for my reader. All of them were thorough, informative, and great for preparation. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and very good at presenting bulks of information in a way that could be quickly processed.

The instructor had an excellent demeanor and candor, very knowledgable about IT industry in general and many different fields in specific.

- Jose Rengel

Excellent instructor. One of the best I have had in over 27 years in the IT business. Genuinely cared about the students understanding the subject material and their success in passing the exam. She taught how to think and reason to pass the test. That is something not found in any text book.

- Craig Calder

One of the most intelligent and well-spoken instructors I have ever had the privilege to work with. His in depth knowledge of the 10 domains in CISSP surpassed my expectations as well as the expectations of my classmates. His teaching style kept the otherwise dry information very memorable and exciting. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to my peers.

- Student
National Institutes of Health

Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.

- Thomas Dunn
Georgia Tech Research Institute

My instructor is a freaking genius, however he really enjoys bringing the info and material to life so in a way you do catch a bit of genius by the end of the course.

- Samuel Angura
World Bank

Fantastic instructor! Really knew the material, and was adept at communicating in an understandable manner to those without an IT background. I couldn't ask for a more genuine, concerned instructor who had her students successful learning as the main motivator for everything she did. Simply superb!

- Timothy Dalhouse
Spectrum Training

Instructor did a fantastic job of delivering a large set of very dense course material cogently to the class. She obviously had the material down cold and could easily break down elements of the different knowledge domains in clear explanations.

- Byron Caswell

The instructor was very knowledgeable about the pen testing and ethical hacking. He was great in delivering the lectures, lab and was very helpful in having us complete the capture the flag exercises. In addition, he provided valuable insight about security in general and pen testing in particular.

- Tijan Drammeh
