Overview

The Implementing Automation for Cisco Enterprise Solutions (ENAUI) v1.2 course teaches you how to integrate programmability and automation in the Cisco®-powered Enterprise Campus and Wide Area Network (WAN) using programming concepts, orchestration, telemetry, and automation tools to create more efficient workflows and more agile networks. 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 Ain’t Markup Language (YAML), Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF), Representational State Configuration Protocol (RESTCONF), and Yet Another Generation (YANG).

This course prepares you for the 300-435 Automating Cisco Enterprise Solutions (ENAUTO) certification exam. Introducing Automation for Cisco Solutions (CSAU) is required prior to enrolling in Implementing Automation for Cisco Enterprise Solutions (ENAUI) because it provides crucial foundational knowledge essential to success.

This course will help you:

  • Gain high-demand skills using modern programming languages, APIs, and systems such as Python, Ansible, and Git to automate, streamline, and enhance business operations.
  • Acquire the skills and knowledge to customize tools, methods, and processes that improve network performance and agility
  • Earn 24 CE credits toward recertification
  • Prepare for the 300-435 ENAUTO exam
