Join Cisco SDA Training and master Cisco Software-Defined Access technology with I-Medita’s Cisco SDA Training/Cisco SD Access Training/ Cisco DNAC Training.

Cisco is a pioneer in the field of networking and continuously introduces new and innovative software, tools, applications for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of Networks. Software-Defined Access (Cisco SDA or Cisco SD-Access) is one such fast emerging revolutionary solution that makes networks more secure, and user experience more consistent by automating user policy and device provisioning.

Such a solution is absolutely the need of the hour because Digitization has transformed the business in a big way. Users carry out activities via wired or wireless connections using multiple devices by accessing websites or Mobile apps etc. Cisco SD Access not only fortifies networks but also provides a consistent user experience.

I-Medita is the foremost Cisco Authorized Training Centers to conduct Cisco SDA Training Course. Before we provide detailed information about Cisco SD Access Training Course, let us get acquainted with what is Cisco SDA, Cisco SD Access, Cisco DNA.

What is Cisco SDA, Cisco SD Access & Cisco DNAC?

As mentioned in a Cisco Article: “Cisco Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) is a critical building block of Cisco DNA and brings the principles and advantages of Cisco DNA to Cisco customers”

Cisco Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA) is designed for the digitization of a network through automation, assurance, security, and segmentation of processes. Cisco DNA Center (Cisco DNAC) is a single, extensible software platform for the management of the entire network. It offers an intent-based networking controller for automation of policies, segmentation, and service configurations. It provides an assurance engine to guarantee the best network experience for all your users.

Cisco Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) is the next generation Enterprise Networking access solution. Cisco Software-Defined Access (Cisco SDA) implements intent-based networking principles. The foundation of Cisco SD Access is controller-based architecture, network fabric and programmable infrastructure.

Cisco SD Access provides visibility-based, automated end-to-end segmentation for separating user, device, and application traffic. Cisco SDA applies unified access policies across LAN & WAN for providing a consistent user experience anytime, anywhere. Cisco SDA makes it faster & easier to manage traffic, regulatory compliance, and security. 


The Cisco SDA Training Course educates candidates right from the terminology, concepts, features of Cisco Software Defined Access (SD-Access) to more elaborate activities such as provisioning, policies, wireless integration, border operations, and migration strategies. Eventually, you will become skilled at successfully deploying Cisco Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) solution in an enterprise network.

I-Medita is one of the earliest Cisco training providers to launch the Cisco SDA Training Course. We provide Instructor Led Classrooms as well as Instructor-Led Online Training Model. Our course curriculum provides ample hands-on practice and extensive Lab exercises to have a complete understanding of Cisco SD-Access solutions and make you competent to implement SD-Access in the real world. 

We would like to mention here, that sometimes Cisco SDA training is also referred to as Cisco SD Access Training or Cisco DNAC Training or Cisco DNAC SD Access Training
