Advanced Cisco Catalyst 6500 Switching (CAT6KS)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

This exclusive Fast Lane course provides advanced switching training to supplement the CCNP Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks (SWITCH) class and provides a design-concept module focused on the Catalyst 6500 features that differentiate the Catalyst 6500 as a solution for next-generation Data Center and Campus networks.We go deep into the product, and truly aim at training engineers on how to maximize the value of their companies investments into the CAT 6K Chassis.

Course Content

The CAT6KS 2.0 curriculum enables customers to build scalable, reliable, and intelligent Data Center and Campus networks using Catalyst 6500 Series switches and replaces the CAT6KS v1.0 course with updated lab guides that work with the revised remote lab topology. CAT6KS also provides advanced switching training to supplement the CCNP Switching Class and provides a design-concept module focused on the Catalyst 6500 features that differentiate the Catalyst 6500 as a solution for next-generation Data Center and Campus networks.
