Course Overview:

Cisco Digital Network Architecture Training (DNA)

Digital Network Architecture Training (DNA) is a program that provides students an insight into Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) architecture and its solution components. The Cisco Digital Network Architecture Training course highlights the need for digitization in networks and the guiding principles of DNA.

The Cisco Digital Network Architecture Training course focuses on implementation of the following DNA solution components:

Automation using Cisco APIC-EM and its built in applications like Plug and Play, EasyQoS, IWAN and Path Trace.
Virtualization in Enterprise Branch Network using Cisco Enterprise Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Solution.
Analytics using Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) cloud.
Security using Cisco StealthWatch, Cisco TrustSec and Cisco Identity Services Engine(ISE)
Enterprise Network Fabric.

The DNAIE course also provides hands-on-labs to demonstrate DNA automation using Cisco APIC-EM and virtualization using Cisco NFV.

Audience / Target Group:

The target audience for this Cisco Digital Network Architecture Training course is defined here:

Experienced network engineers working for Enterprise customers who are early adopters of Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture
