Course Objectives

    In the first day of this course you will be introduced to the DNA Spaces solution. Use cases are then presented to provide additional insight into the solution’s applicability in your customer’s vertical market. A dedicated section to Covid-19 and considerations for getting ‘back to business’ will be provided. As this is a cloud-based solution, security considerations are then reviewed and the ramifications in your geographic region. Finally, DNA Spaces licensing is reviewed.

    The second and third days of the course are optional and will provide hands-on configuring and evaluating a DNA Spaces solution. You will obtain an account to access the DNA Spaces cloud, and will then perform network on-boarding. Subsequently, you will configure locations. Cisco DNA Spaces Apps will then be configured and reviewed. You will learn about Captive Portals and then configure one. You will learn the tools available to tailor your customer’s solution, including the use of the DNA Spaces API. Finally, you will configure a DNA Spaces solution for Covid-19 cases based on the components you have learned.
