Course Objectives

After completing the course, students should be able to:

  • Describe topologies and protocols commonly used in a data center fabric
  • Explain the configuration and use of the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) on VCS virtual ports
  • Describe and apply different domain linking options
  • List the different options available for virtual machines to route packets into the data center underlay
  • Identify advantages of having VRSes with dual uplinks

  • Describe how to reach external networks by extending a domain to a data center gateway and beyond
  • Explain how policy groups are used to improve the granularity and flexibility of security and forwarding policies
  • Describe how virtual machines can send and receive multicast traffic
  • List and apply the different quality of service capabilities available in VCS
  • Describe how the VSD can directly configure a Nokia 7750 SR using Netconf to extend L2 and L3 domains
