Implementing Cisco Identity Services Engine Secure Solutions (ISE) is a course that is designed to provide students with hands-on lab configuration of the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) running software version 1.0. The Cisco ISE platform takes the place of the Cisco Secure Access Control System (ACS) and Network Admission Control (NAC) servers that are typically used in identity-based networks. The students will implement IEEE 802.1X-based network services using Cisco Catalyst and Nexus switches and Cisco wireless products. The course also addresses solution design, sizing, resiliency, and platform troubleshooting
