Define Your Career with New Cisco Certifications

Ambition! If you’ve got it, growth is among the most important words in your vocabulary. The challenge is that we’re talking about your career. You don’t want to waste time, energy, and money going in the wrong direction. What you want is to continually broaden your knowledge base while you grow upward into positions of greater responsibility, greater opportunity, and greater compensation.

Get a "weather forecast" of global traffic from Cisco (CISCO)

Cisco has put together a forecast of cloud and data center traffic in different parts of the world, called the Cisco Global Cloud Index (GCI).

Configure wireless guest access with anchor controller (CISCO)

CISCO recommends the use of an anchor controller dedicated to guest traffic to differentiate guest access from secured network areas. Guest anchor controllers are a beneficial way to protect the network while still providing access for guests.

Manage many ports more easily and reliably with stacked switches (CISCO)

While it's easier to manage one switch than many switches, a single switch may not give you all the ports you need. To solve this problem, stackable switches allow you to combine the individual switches into a single stack, which operates like a single switch.

Cisco Careers – The Fundamentals, Networking & CyberSecurity, Are Still Most Important

With all of the innovation taking place in their company, two of the highlights from Cisco Live are that fundamental Networking is more important than ever, and CyberSecurity is a foundational skill in every Cisco environment. This is valuable career information for those building their path in tech. 

Go into CONFIG mode to successfully clear ACL hit count with command (CISCO)

Clearing the access-list (ACL) counters is similar to resetting the trip odometer on your car and provides a clean slate for future reports. When making changes to the configuration, starting the ACL counters at zero grants more reliable data in relation to the current changes. A reset command must be performed within the CONFIG mode in order to restart that counter, or it won’t work. 

To reset the ACL, type the command: “clear access-list counters” in CONFIG mode. Results for the ACL command are now cleared. Use the command: “clear int ethernet0” to clear counters in the interface. It might seem more natural to perform these commands within enable mode, but this only works in CONFIG.

Use the Cisco IOS console to permanently configure terminal length (CISCO)

There are simple ways to temporarily adjust your timing so that the terminal length displays all the output in the same window, but if you’re consistently exceeding the default 24-line limit it’s probably time to make a permanent change. The temporary expansion of the terminal length is great if you’re in the habit of hitting the space bar every 24 lines, but the permanent change will improve your efficiency even more. A new default length of 40 lines is considered acceptable by most networks, but it should not exceed that length.

To permanently increase the default terminal length for future IOS sessions, type the following into the console: Router#conf t Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z. Router(config)#line vty 04 Router(config-line)#len Router(config-line)#length ? <0-512> Number of lines on screen (0 for no pausing) Router(config-line)#length 40.

Cisco - Quickly Remove Settings with a Config Command

Modifying an interface configuration can be as tedious as picking white cat hair off a black cashmere sweater.
Typically, in order to remove unwanted items you have to go through each individual line and put “no” in front. If you need to completely re-do the configuration or are faced with a laundry list of changes, it is simpler and faster to restore the default configuration. Furthermore, it will reduce potential oversight errors.

Get Unified with Cisco UCS

The data center has become a big differentiator. The more efficiency, the more functionality a company can obtain from its data center the more competitive it can be.

This creates more demand upon the data center for greater agility and flexibility, and more pressure for greater performance and broader capability. Ultimately this results in increased complexity that can make it more and more difficult for a data center to keep up with the constantly growing demand. It becomes a vicious cycle.

This is what inspired Cisco to create the Unified Computing System (UCS). From inception, Cisco described UCS as it’s “end-to-end” solution, bringing every component of the entire compute environment together enabling data center professionals to complete 80% or more of their operational tasks from a single console. Given that IDC reports that the top driver for IT operations and analytics is the requirement for improved infrastructure capacity planning and utilization, having servers, storage, data communications and more all unified under an umbrella of Cisco management tools and systems constitutes a superb solution.
