Implementing Automation for Cisco Service Provider Solutions (SPAUI) v1.0

Duration: 3 Days (24 Hours)

Implementing Automation for Cisco Service Provider Solutions (SPAUI) v1.0 Course Overview:

In the Implementing Automation for Cisco Service Provider Solutions (SPAUI) v1.0 course, you will learn to implement and support automation solutions in a Service Provider network infrastructure. This includes using network programmability principles, protocols, tools, and mechanisms. You will gain hands-on experience deploying, configuring, monitoring, and operating Service Provider networks using modern data models. The course introduces automation solutions that streamline network operations, replacing time-consuming CLI management with efficient, scalable automation techniques.

This course covers Yet Another Next Generation (YANG) data models and validation tools, Representational State Transfer Configuration Protocol RESTCONF and Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) management protocols, model-driven telemetry with Google Remote Procedure Call (gRPC) and Google Network Management Interface (gNMI), traffic automation with XR Transport Control (XTC), Secure Shell (SSH)-based automation tools like NetMiko and Ansible, orchestration provided by Network Services Orchestration (NSO), Network Function
Virtualization (NFV) lifecycle management with Elastic Services Controller (ESC), and network operations automation with WAN Automation Engine (WAE).This course prepares you for the 300-535 Automating and Programming Cisco® Service Provider Solutions (SPAUTO) exam. This course also earns you 24 Continuing
Education (CE) credits towards recertification. Introducing Automation for Cisco Solutions (CSAU) is required prior to enrolling in Implementing Automation
for Cisco Service Provider Solutions (SPAUI) because it provides crucial foundational knowledge essential to success.
