I'm finally dusting off this blog again to post a video series that I just made covering a demo of a Cisco Software-Defined Access (SDA) deployment using zero-touch (Plug and Play and LAN Automation).

Since this is the first time I've made a video series, I decided to keep it pretty informal and I didn't do anything in the way of retakes or editing, which made it a bit more enjoyable to do - That's important, right?

(Also, I wrote a book that I haven't blogged about yet, so there's a bit of self-promotion here.)

The following topics are discussed in the video series:

  • Templates in Cisco DNA Center
  • Plug and Play (PnP) on the Cisco Catalyst 9300 Switch
  • PnP on the Cisco Catalyst 9800 Wireless LAN Controller
  • Device provisioning in Cisco DNA Center
  • Building a Cisco SD-Access Underlay using LAN Automation
  • Fabric Border Automation
  • Wireless Automation
  • Fabric Enabled Wireless
  • Fabric In A Box with Embedded Wireless on Cisco Catalyst 9300 Switch
  • Cisco Software-Defined Access for Distributed Campus (multisite)
  • Segmentation and Policy in Cisco SD-Access
