The INE CCDP Bootcamp covers in depth information about the Nexus line from Cisco Systems. Here is some of the overview information from the course for those that desire a quick introduction to this line of equipment.

With the Nexus gear, Cisco introduces us to yet another operating system called NX-OS. The platforms that run this Operating System include:

  • Nexus 7000
  • Nexus 5000
  • Nexus 2000
  • Nexus 1000V
  • Cisco MDS 9000
  • Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS)
  • Nexus 4000

What are the key features of this new Operating System? Capabilities include:

  • Virtual Device Contexts (VDC) – devices can be segmented into virtual devices
  • Virtual Port Channels (vPC) – switches or servers able to use EtherChannel across two upstream switches
  • Continuos system operation – thanks to features like In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) and dynamic restart for processes
  • Security – 802.1AE
  • From Base Service licenses to Advanced Services and Transport Services

Our course ensures you understand all of the management interfaces available with the Nexus line. These include:

  • Controller (CP)/Supervisor
  • Connectivity Management Processor
  • MGMT0
  • Telnet
  • SSH
  • Extended Markup Language (XML) management interface
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)

If you are interested in learning all about these network components and their differences from the IOS-based devices, be sure to attend the live course – or enjoy the On-Demand version.
