Through a combination of lessons and hands-on labs, you will learn to deploy, configure, monitor, and operate service provider network environments using modern data models. These models allow you to represent operational data and new network management protocols in order to administer hundreds or thousands of devices in a single operation, replacing traditional, time-consuming, error prone, device-by-device CLI management. The course also introduces powerful automation solutions that can streamline network operations.

This course helps you prepare for the Automating Cisco Service Provider Solutions (300-535 SPAUTO) exam. By passing this exam, you earn the Cisco Certified DevNet Specialist - Service Provider Automation and Programmability certification, and you satisfy the concentration exam requirement for two professional-level certifications:
