Course Overview

Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) is the industry’s first intent-based networking solution for the Enterprise built on the principles of Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture (DNA). SD-Access provides automated end-to-end segmentation to separate user, device and application traffic without redesigning the network.

There are many challenges to manage enterprise networks including manual configuration and fragmented tool offerings. Manual operations are slow and error-prone and these issues are exacerbated by constantly changing environments with more users, devices and applications. With the growth of users and different devices types accessing the network, it is has become more complex to configure user credentials and maintain a consistent policy across the network. Without a consistent access policy, it is difficult to maintain separate policies between wired and wireless or to locate users and troubleshoot issues as users move around the network. The bottom line is that networks today do not address current network needs. The SDAISE course addresses these issues.


What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Explain the role that ISE plays as part of the solution
  • Configure AAA services and TrustSec Policy in ISE
  • Explain ISE Integration with DNA Center for Policy enforcement Know and understand Cisco’s SD-Access concepts, features, benefits, terminology and the way this approach innovates common administrative tasks on today’s networks.
  • Differentiate and explain each of the building blocks of SD-Access Solution
  • Explain the concept of “Fabric” and the different node types that conform it (Fabric Edge Nodes, Control Plane Nodes, Border Nodes)
  • Describe the role of LISP in Control Plane and VXLAN in Data Plane for SD-Access Solution
  • Understand TrustSec concepts, deployment details and the way it is used as part of SD-Access Solution for segmentation and Policy Enforcement
