Implementing Cisco Catalyst 9000 Switches


Course Description

The Implementing Cisco Catalyst 9000 Switches v1.0 course introduces you to the architecture, capabilities, and implementation of the Cisco® Catalyst® 9000 switching platform. This hands-on course covers many features of this Cisco IOS® XE platform and describes how to manage devices from a single dashboard called 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 will help you:

  • Get to know the next generation in the Cisco Catalyst family of enterprise LAN access, aggregation, and core switches
  • Prepare for successful deployment of the Cisco Catalyst 9000 switching family
  • Understand the role of Cisco Catalyst 9000 switches in the SD-Access fabric
  • Learn to provision Cisco Catalyst 9000  switches using Cisco DNA center as the orchestration platform
  • Gain hands-on practice through in-depth lab exercises

Technology areas:

  • Cisco DNA
  • Software-defined networking Routing and switching

Who Should Attend

Network engineers, designers, managers, and system engineers who are adopting the Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA™) and will use Cisco Catalyst 9000 Switches to enable an SD-Access solution provisioned with DNA Center - Network engineers, Network designers, Network managers, System engineers
