Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Matt Carey, and welcome to my course Getting Started With Cisco Software-defined Access. I am a network engineer at a Cisco partner company, and I am really excited about sharing this course with you because SDA is revolutionizing how we do networking and is the future of Cisco networks. All the things that we would normally do for a network design or configuration completely changes with SDA. So if you are like me and you do not want to fall behind in your job field, check out this course today and I will help you prepare for the future of Cisco networking. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the DNAC installation process, how to deploy an SDA fabric network, network segmentation with TrustSec, and monitoring and troubleshooting with DNAC Assurance. By the end of this course you will have a solid foundation of SDA knowledge that will help you deploy an SDA fabric network. So I hope you will join me on this journey to learn SDA with the Getting Started with Cisco Software-defined Access course at Pluralsight.
