The Implementing Cisco Catalyst 9000 Series Switches (ENC9K) 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.


The e-learning format of this class offers an immersive, practice-based learning experience at your own pace. Using enterprise-grade Cisco equipment and software, this hands-on training is designed to be as effective as classroom training, with easily consumable segments of video, text, discovery labs, review questions, and assessments.
