The Digital Network Architecture Implementation Essentials (DNAIE) version 1.0 Cisco® Training on Demand course provides you insight into Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA™) and its solution components. You learn about the need for digitization in networks and the guiding principles of Cisco DNA.
In addition, you learn about automation using Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) and built-in applications such as Plug and Play, EasyQoS, Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN), and Path Trace. You learn about virtualization in enterprise branch networks using the Cisco Enterprise Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) solution, analytics using Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) Cloud, and security using Cisco Stealthwatch®, Cisco TrustSec®, and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE). Finally, you learn about enterprise network fabric.
The DNAIE Training on Demand is a self-paced course based upon the 5-day instructor-led training. It consists of 27 sections of instructor video and text instruction along with interactive activities, 17 hands-on lab exercises, content review questions, and challenge questions.
This course is designed for experienced network engineers working for enterprise customers who are early adopters of Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture and channel partner field engineers who are supporting trials and early deployments of Cisco DNA.
