ENC9K - Implementing Cisco Catalyst 9000 Switches Course

ENC9K - Implementing Cisco Catalyst 9000 Switches Training Course


Course Description:

The ENC9K-Implementing Cisco Catalyst 9000 Switches v1.0 course is a 3-day course that is designed to teach students about the many features of the Cisco IOS XE platform and describes how to manage devices from a single dashboard, the Cisco DNA Center. During the course students 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.

Topics covered in the course include:

  • Reviewing the Cisco Catalyst 9000 switching family, identifying the product features, and examining the functionalities purpose-built for Cisco DNA and the SD-Access solution
  • Describing the Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series Switch architecture, model types, port types, uplink modules, and components including power supplies and stacking cables
  • Describing the Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series Switches, different modular chassis, supervisor and line card options, architectural components, uplink and power redundancy, and multigigabit ports
  • Describing the Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series Switches, model types, switch components, RFID support, architecture, and switch profiles
  • Positioning the different Cisco Catalyst 9000 family switch model types in the network and map older Cisco Catalyst switches to the 9000 family for migration
  • Examining management capabilities of the Cisco Catalyst 9000 family of switches
  • Describing the Cisco Catalyst 9000 family of switches deployed in a Cisco StackWise Virtual environment and an SD-Access fabric
  • Describing the new Cisco IOS XE software management, patchability, and insertion and removal (GIR) features for the Cisco Catalyst 9000 switching family
  • Describing the scalability and performance features supported by the Cisco Catalyst 9000 switching family
  • Describing the Cisco Catalyst 9000 support for security, quality of service (QoS), and Internet of Things (IoT) convergence features
  • Describe the Cisco Catalyst 9000 support for cloud hosting and connectivity, along with automation features
  • Exploring the SD-Access solution fundamentals and deployment models for the Cisco Catalyst 9000, and the use of Cisco DNA Center to manage infrastructure devices
  • Getting to know the next generation in the Cisco Catalyst family of enterprise LAN access, aggregation, and core switches
  • Preparing for successful deployment of the Cisco Catalyst 9000 switching family
  • Understanding the role of Cisco Catalyst 9000 switches in the SD-Access fabric
  • Learning to provision Cisco Catalyst 9000 switches using Cisco DNA center as the orchestration platform

Target Student:

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

Prerequisites:

It is recommended, but not required, to have the following skills and knowledge before attending this course:

  • Cisco CCNP Routing and Switching certification or equivalent experience
  • Knowledge of configuring LAN routing and switching with legacy Cisco Catalyst switches
  • Familiarity with the Cisco IOS XE operating system
  • Awareness of Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) as an authentication platform and policy manager
