Request Course Detail

The new Cisco 9K series switches are here, and so is this new course to get your team proficient on the latest Cisco switching technologies. This course covers in-depth 9K features, design practices and provides deployment experience with many hands-on labs with the 9K, Cisco DNA, and ISE. This hands-on course covers many features of the Cisco IOS XE platform and describes how to manage devices from a single dashboard, the Cisco DNA Center. You will learn how to use the Cisco Catalyst 9000 family of switches to enable Software Defined Access (SD-Access) and provide end-to-end security and automation with centralized management using DNA Center.

This course is for Network engineers, designers, managers, and system engineers who are adopting Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) and will use Cisco Catalyst 9000 Switches to enable an SD-Access solution provisioned with DNA Center.

Cisco Learning Credits are accepted for this course!

If you need to learn about the new Catalyst 9K's, and Cisco DNA, Active Expert / WiFi Training is the best place to learn from! Our awarded instructors have extensive experience with Cisco Unified Access, Cisco DNAC, ISE, Prime, and customizing solutions to meet the needs of any company.
