Course Features

CISCO ACI Training in Bangalore

The Cisco ACI training and certification course enable you to deploy and manage Cisco Nexus 9k series switches in Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI) mode. 

The Cisco ACI training course teach you how to configure and how to manage Cisco Nexus 9000 series switches in ACI mode, how to connect the Cisco ACI fabric to external networks and services, and last, Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) integration fundamentals. 

Technology area

Data Center

We prepare candidates according to the current job roles in industry. Once you complete Cisco ACI course, you will be able to appear in 300-620 DCACI exam.   

CISCO ACI Physical Topology

UniNets provide virtual lab access to each students so that they can design their network topology.   Here is the Cisco ACI topology below.

Benefits of Cisco ACI deployments

  • This automates IT workflows end to end
  • Makes an enterprise sufficiently ready to minimize the deployment of applications from several weeks to a few minutes
  • The implementation of ACI allows organizations through a whitelist model, policy enforcement, and micro-segmentation to protect their applications
  • It uses open API features and over 65 Cisco ACI global partner ecosystems to strongly create programmable SDN fabrics
  • Cisco ACI has offered comprehensive benefits, including the smooth deployment and relocation of any business apps across geographies with a clear policy
