Cisco NDFC Pre-Sales Workshop

Course Description

This workshop is designed with the “life-of-a-pre-sales-engineer and account manager” in mind. This workshop will provide “just-enough” information to build a baseline understanding of Cisco Nexus 9000 and VXLAN/EVPN using the Cisco Nexus Dashboard Fabric Controller (NDFC)(Formerly Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM)), how to position, demo, and finally building a BOM and a SOW to accelerate “closing the deal”. This course will also enable the students to create a personal learning roadmap. This course is built and delivered by subject matter experts (SME) who are “neck-deep” with using Cisco NDFC Solution to provision and manage Cisco Nexus 9000 and VXLAN/EVPN environments and cover many lessons learned in this journey.
