Course Content

The ISE PW (Cisco Identity Services Engine Power Workshop) is a five-day highly-intensive instructor-led course that covers all that you will need to learn about the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) version 1.2 and its deployment in a Cisco security solution for access control. The Power Workshop combines all topics from the different Cisco courses on ISE and is our latest offering for a complete all-in-1 course.The learners will dive into the detailed architecture of the ISE and its different deployments. They will build the solution by implementing authentication and then extending the system with the authorization, guest services, Cisco TrustSec, posture, and profiling components. The most fundamental concepts include the authentication methods, such as 802.1X, Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), and Web authentication (WebAuth). The course includes combining ISE with the Cisco Wireless solution, and extending the solution with the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend as well as integrating with Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions. The course ends with Administration, Maintenance, Reporting, Monitoring and Troubleshooting on the Cisco ISE.Knowledge is reinforced by hands-on lab exercises all throughout.
