The Transforming to a Cisco Intent-Based Network (IBNTRN) v1.1 is a 5-day course that teaches you how the functionality of Cisco SD-Access fits into Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA). Through a combination of lessons and hands-on learning, you will practice operating, managing, and integrating Cisco DNA Center, programmable network infrastructure, and Cisco SD-Access fundamentals. You will learn how Cisco delivers intent-based networking across the campus, branch, WAN, and extended enterprise and ensures that your network is operating as intended. The course qualifies for 40 Cisco Continuing Education credits (CE) towards recertification. This course will help you:

  • Configure an open, software-driven approach that makes the network simpler, more agile, and responsive to business needs
  • Leverage the functionality of Cisco DNA Center to streamline operations, reduce costs, detect and contain threats, and continuously align the network to business needs

Skills Gained

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Identify the Cisco Digital Network Architecture solution by describing the vision, strategy, general concepts, and components.
  • Describe the Cisco DNA Center design application, hierarchical network design, and basic network settings, and describe the integration of Cisco DNA Center with Cisco Identity Services Engine (Cisco ISE) for Automation and Assurance.
  • Describe the Cisco DNA Center Inventory and the available mechanisms for discovering and adding network devices, and explore the device compatibility with Cisco DNA Center and SD-Access.
  • Describe the Cisco DNA Center automation features such as configuration templates, software image maintenance, and Plug and Play (PnP) device onboarding.
  • Explore the Cisco DNA Center user interface, the available workflows for onboarding devices, and how to design and manage a network.
  • Introduce Cisco SD-Access, describe the different node types in the fabric and the two-level segmentation provided by the solution, and take a deep dive into the control and data plane protocols used in Cisco SD-Access.
  • Describe the Cisco DNA Center workflow for deploying Cisco SD-Access, defining all the prerequisite network settings and profiles, defining the required policies, creating fabric domains and sites, and provisioning fabric nodes.
  • Create and manage fabric domains and sites, provision fabric devices, and onboard your endpoints in a single site or distributed fabric campus network.
  • Describe the features available for automating and monitoring wireless networks with Cisco DNA Center, and describe the available deployment models with their benefits and limitations, such as wireless Over-the-Top (OTT) and SD-Access Wireless.
  • Describe the Cisco SD-Access Extension for IoT solution, its architecture and components, and the benefits and limitations of the solution
  • Describe the use cases and migration scenarios for migrating users from traditional campus to SD
