Overview

The Configuring and Operating Cisco EPN Manager course shows you how to install, provision, monitor, and maintain a packet and optical multilayer network using Cisco Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) Manager. This course also covers configuration and compliance management, device configuration, and service management.

The Cisco EPN Manager is a simplified and cost-effective solution for device operation, administration, network provisioning, and network assurance management for today's converging packet and optical multilayer networks. It enables end-to-end lifecycle management across core, edge, aggregation, and access networks.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
