Implementing Automation for Cisco Enterprise Solutions (ENAUI) is a 3-day course which teaches students 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, students 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 Ainít Markup Language (YAML), Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF), Representational State Configuration Protocol (RESTCONF), and Yet Another Generation (YANG).

Who Should Attend:
This course is designed primarily for network and software engineers who are interested in learning about automation and programmability and hold the following job roles:

Network engineer, Systems engineer, Wireless engineer, Consulting systems engineer, Technical solutions architect, Network administrator, Wireless design engineer, Network manager, Sales engineer, Account manager

The knowledge and skills that the learner should have before attending this course are as follows:

Basic programming language concepts
Basic understanding of virtualization
Ability to use Linux and CLI tools, such as Secure Shell (SSH) and bash
Networking knowledge equivalent to the CCNP level
Foundational understanding of Cisco DNA, Meraki, and Cisco SD-WAN


Course is subject to a minimum enrollment to run. Course may run virtually as a live online class if the minimum enrollment is not met. For more information, please contact: or call 207-775-0244. Course will include Labs and Courseware.
