Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) – Data Center -Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Fabric (DCUFI)


DCUFI Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Fabric exam is associated with the CCNP DC certification and with the Cisco Unified Fabric Support Specialist. This exam tests a candidate's knowledge of implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Fabric architecture, security, management, high availability, virtualization in the network.


• Identify the Cisco Nexus product family, specifically the Cisco Nexus 7000 switch chassis and components, the Cisco Nexus 5000 switch, and the Cisco Nexus 2000 Fabric Extender • Identify critical features and constraints in a hardware implementation plan • Select and configure the distinctive Nexus 7000 features to meet the implementation requirements and expectations in the Cisco Business Advantage Data Center Architecture • Configure advanced features such as OTV, Security and Quality of Service • Identify Cisco Nexus management tools and configure the relevant management tool to support the given design • Describe the Fibre Channel protocol, the Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol, and the Data Center Bridging Enhancements • Configure the Cisco Nexus 5000 switch to support Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) • Troubleshoot the key features of the Cisco Nexus switches


• Cisco Unified Fabric Products Overview • Overview of Cisco Nexus Hardware Installation • Cisco NX-OS Software Feature Configuration • Cisco Nexus 5000 and 7000 Switch Configuration • Redundancy on the Cisco Nexus Switches • Cisco Nexus Switch Advanced Feature Configuration • Cisco Nexus Series Switch Management • Cisco Nexus Storage Features • Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) • Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) Configuration • Troubleshooting on the Cisco Nexus Switches In addition, you will also receive access to supplemental material. Some of this material may include task-based lab simulations, mentoring support, online printable class notes and the Cisco Authorized Student Toolkit. Pre and Post assessments are available as may be a Test Prep exam which can be taken in study and certification mode to help you prepare.
