The Cisco Digital Network Architecture Implementation Essentials (DNAIE) v2.0 course gives you a thorough operational understanding of the architecture, components, and capabilities of the Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA™) solution, using a lab-centric learning model. The course highlights the need for digitization in networks and the guiding principles of Cisco DNA. This solution training involves a suite of related technologies, including routing and switching, security, network programmability, analytics, and wireless.
The course covers automation using the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) and built-in applications such as Cisco Network Plug and Play, EasyQoS, Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN), and Path Trace. You will also learn about virtualization in enterprise branch networks using the Cisco Enterprise Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution, including a deep dive into the Cisco 5400 Enterprise Network Compute System (ENCS), internal networking, and an overview of ENCS single WAN IP deployment option scenarios. The course also covers analytics using Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) Cloud; security using Cisco Stealthwatch®, Cisco TrustSec®, and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE); and the role of Cisco Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) in Cisco DNA and how to implement SD-Access in a campus network.
Cisco DNA is a software-driven architecture that enables automation, network functions virtualization, analytics, and security in enterprise network operations.
