ENAUI-Implementing Automation for Cisco Enterprise Solutions v1.0

Through a combination of lessons and hands-on labs, you will gain knowledge and skills for using Cisco Internetworking Operating System (Cisco IOS-XE) for device-centric automation, Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) Center for the intent-based enterprise network, Cisco Software-Defined (SD) WAN, and Cisco Meraki. You will study software development toolkits, industry-standard workflows, tools, and Application Programming Interface (APIs), such as Python, Ansible, Git, JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), YAML Aint Markup Language (YAML), Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF), Representational State Configuration Protocol (RESTCONF), and Yet Another Generation (YANG).

After taking this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the various models and APIs of the Cisco IOS-XE platform to perform Day 0 operations, improve troubleshooting methodologies with custom tools, augment the Command-Line Interface (CLI) using scripts, and integrate various workflows using Ansible and Python
  • Explain the paradigm shift of model-driven telemetry and the building blocks of a working solution
    Control the tools and APIs to automate Cisco DNA infrastructure managed by Cisco DNA Center
  • Demonstrate workflows (configuration, verification, health checking, and monitoring) using Python, Ansible, and Postman
  • Explain Cisco SD-WAN solution components, implement a Python library that works with the Cisco SD-WAN APIs to perform configuration, inventory management, and monitoring tasks, and implement reusable Ansible roles to automate provisioning new branch sites on an existing Cisco SD-WAN infrastructure
  • Manage the tools and APIs to automate Cisco Meraki managed infrastructure and demonstrate workflows (configuration, verification, health checking, monitoring) using Python, Ansible, and Postman
