Course Description

IBNTRN - Transforming to a Cisco Intent-Based Network v1.1

Transforming to a Cisco Intent-Based Network (IBNTRN) is a 5-day instructor-led, virtual instructor-led, or e-learning course that teaches students how to successfully deploy Cisco SD-Access solution within their greenfield or brownfield Enterprise networks.
The course will discuss how Cisco SD-Access fits into Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA). The course covers Cisco SD-Access fundamentals, provisioning, policies, wireless integration, and border operations. Other topics covered by the course include: operating, managing, and integrating Cisco DNA Center, and understanding programmable network infrastructure.

Transforming to a Cisco Intent-Based Network (IBNTRN) course is also available as part of our Cisco Enterprise Networking Passport, which helps individuals and teams connect people, devices, machines, and applications.
