Cisco DNA Planning & Deploying SD-Access Fundamentals

With Ratnesh K 2xCCIE #61380

The Planning and Deploying SD-Access Fundamentals  course focuses on deploying the Cisco Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) solution from the ground up. It starts with how to integrate Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) and Cisco DNA Center™ and ends with end-to-end troubleshooting and using Cisco DNA™ Assurance to monitor and troubleshoot endpoint and fabric issues.

What you’ll learn

  • List the components that make up the SD-Access solution and describe how SD-Access operates.
  • Configure and verify the secure integration between ISE and DNA Center.
  • Configure and verify the network underlay and use DNA Center to discover the nodes and add them to the inventory.
  • Use Cisco DNA Assurance to determine the health of the fabric and isolate endpoint device activity.

Cisco DNA Planning & Deploying SD-Access Fundamentals

Requirements

  • Network deployment experience equivalent to the Cisco CCNP® Routing and Switching certification.
  • Basic understanding of 802.1X and Cisco TrustSec operation.
  • Practical experience in locating and viewing groups and policies in ISE.
  • Working knowledge of Cisco wireless operation and configuration of Cisco wireless LAN controllers and access points.

You will learn understand these below mention topics in detail :

● List the components that make up the SD-Access solution and describe how SD-Access operates

● Configure and verify the secure integration between ISE and DNA Center

● Configure and verify the network underlay and use DNA Center to discover the nodes and add them to the inventory

● Build a basic campus fabric using DNA Center and onboard hosts using DNA Center and ISE

● Connect the fabric to external networks that include shared services and the Internet

● Use a layered methodology to test and troubleshoot the SD-Access solution

● Use micro-segmentation to segment groups within a virtual network or restrict specific traffic types between groups

● Enable wireless for non guest and guest users over the SD-Access fabric

● Enable multicast operation over the SD-Access fabric

● Use Cisco DNA Assurance to determine the health of the fabric and isolate endpoint device activity

Since the features do not depend on each other, you can view them as needed or in your preferred order. It starts with the solution overview, then goes into building the underlay and basic campus fabric and host onboarding. Once you build the basic campus, you add micro-segmentation, wireless support for employees and guests, and multicast support. After the solution is built, the presenters walk you through how to perform end-to-end testing and use Cisco DNA Assurance to determine the health of the fabric and view selected endpoint workstation access to the fabric.
