Course Overview

Top

The Implementing Cisco Catalyst 9000 Switches (ENC9K) 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.
