Course Description

In this course, you'll learn about how Virtual Extensible LAN allows you to take your traditional VLANs and map them to a VXLAN and route them over the entire routed infrastructure of your data center or even between data centers. You'll also learn about why VXLAN is an improvement over VLAN. Next, you'll examine features of Ethernet VPN and the EVPN approach to VXLAN operational deployment. Finally, you'll explore how Overlay Transport Virtualization can be used to seamlessly stitch different parts of your data center together and trick those parts into thinking they are Layer 2 connected. This course is one in a collection that helps prepare learners for the 350-601 Implementing Cisco Data Center Core Technologies (DCCOR) certification exam.
