Digital Network Architecture Implementation Essentials (DNAIE) v1.0

Cisco E-Learning for DNAIE v1.0 has been updated to v1.1. It is a training program that provides students an insight into Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) and its solution components.

This course highlights the need for digitization in networks and the guiding principles of DNA. It also provides hands-on labs to demonstrate DNA automation using Cisco APIC-EM and virtualization using Cisco Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

Course Objectives

Upon completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Identify the Digital Network Architecture solution by describing the vision, strategy, general concepts, and components of it.
  • Implement network automation using Cisco APIC-EM and the built-in applications like Cisco Network Plug and Play, EasyQoS, IWAN, and Path Trace.
  • Implement network virtualization using Cisco NFV in an Enterprise branch network.
  • Implement network analytics using Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) Cloud.
  • Implement network security using Cisco StealthWatch, Cisco TrustSec, and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE).
  • Understand enterprise fabric and implementing DNA Secure Access.

Target Audience

  • Experienced network engineers working for Enterprise customers who are early adopters of Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture
  • Channel Partner field engineers who are supporting trials and early deployments of DNA
  • Customers
  • Employees

Course Prerequisites

It is recommended, but not required, that students have the following knowledge and skills:

  • Foundational understanding of network design, routing concepts, QoS, and network security, including firewall operations (transparent mode).
  • Ability to configure OSPF and EIGRP routing protocols along with an understanding of Enterprise WAN and DMVPN technologies.
  • Understanding of wireless LAN parameters, wireless LAN controllers, and access point capabilities.
