Price Upon Request

The ENC9K - Implementing Cisco Catalyst 9000 Series Switches 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.
