The Implementing Automation for Cisco Enterprise Solutions (ENAUI) v1.0 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 also helps you prepare to take the exam, Automating Cisco Enterprise Solutions (ENAUTO 300-435).
