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).

These skills can be obtained through the following courses:
WLFNDU  Understanding Cisco Wireless Foundations
ENCOR  Implementing and Operating Cisco Enterprise Network Core Technologies

Target Audience
This course is intended for Network Administrators, Network or System Engineers, Technical Architects and Technical Support personnel.
