Course Objectives

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 prepares you for the 300-435 Automating Cisco Enterprise Solutions (ENAUTO) certification exam.

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
  • Prepare for the 300-435 ENAUTO exam

What to expect in the exam

The 300-435 ENAUTO exam certifies your knowledge and skills in implementing Enterprise automated solutions, including programming concepts, Python programming, APIs, controllers, and automation tools.

After you pass 300-435 ENAUTO, you earn the Cisco Certified DevNet Specialist - Enterprise Automation and Programmability certification, and you satisfy the concentration exam requirement for these professional-level certifications:

  • CCNP® Enterprise
  • Cisco Certified DevNet Professional

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.

Course Content
