The intention is not to provide a complete overview of ISE but to provide a delta ISE 2.1 two-day course (see SISE - Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine v2.1  if a comprehensive ISE course is desired). You will get hands-on experience with labs that cover multi-AD integration, BYOD using an iPAD, posture integration using the Cisco AnyConnect Unified Agent, guest access management, and enhanced TrustSec.
