The 5-day instructor-led IBNTRN course teaches participants how the functionality of Cisco® SD-Access fits into Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA™). Through a combination of lessons and hands-on learning, students will practice operating, managing, and integrating Cisco DNA Center, programmable network infrastructure, and Cisco SD-Access fundamentals. Participants will learn how Cisco delivers intent-based networking across the campus, branch, WAN and extended enterprise and ensures that a network is operating as intended. Note: the knowledge and skills that a learner should have before attending this course are as follows:
- Understanding of network routing and switching principles equivalent to a CCNP® Enterprise level
- Experience with Cisco Unified Wireless Network technologies
- Experience with Cisco ISE, 802.1x, and Cisco TrustSec
- Understanding of segmentation technologies such as VLANs and Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF)
- Basic understanding of overlay technologies such as Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN)
- Basic understanding of Locator ID Separation Protocol (LISP).
This course is intended for Network Administrators, Network or System Engineers, Technical Architects and Technical Support personnel.
