5 Days Course
Network Virtualization



This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSXâ„¢. This course covers NSX as a part of the software-defined data center platform, implementation use cases along with features of NSX, and functionality operating at Layer 2 through Layer 7 of the OSI model.


Data center network architectures are examined to demonstrate how NSX intersects with and virtualizes functions of a Cisco-based infrastructure in spine-leaf and traditional core-aggregate-access architectures. Lecture and hands-on lab activities support the student’s understanding of NSX features, functionality, and on-going management and control.
