Cisco Digital Network Architecture Training

Solution Overview
Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) provides an architectural framework that defines how software-defined networking (SDN) applies to the enterprise network outside of the data center. Within the framework, there is the management and orchestration component which is DNA Center and the infrastructure it manages: switches, routers and wireless products. DNA delivers on the ability to raise the level of orchestration from traditional command-line interface (CLI) to SDN, so that IT can focus on defining and implementing the business intent and policies, instead of on low level CLI.
