Implementing Automation for Cisco Service Provider Solutions Course Overview
Vinsys' Cisco SPAUI v1.0 training lets you deploy, configure, monitor, and operate Service Provider network environments using modern data models. In addition, it explains how these models help you represent operational data and new network management protocols to administer hundreds/thousands of devices in a single operation, replacing traditional/time-consuming and error-prone device-by-device Command Line Interface (CLI) management.
The in-depth course introduces powerful automation solutions for streamlining network operations. It covers Yet Another Next Generation (YANG) data models and validation tools, Representational State Transfer Configuration Protocol RESTCONF, and Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) management protocols.
It also addresses model-driven telemetry with Google Remote Procedure Call (gRPC) and Google Network Management Interface (gNMI), traffic automation with XR Transport Control (XTC), Secure Shell (SSH)-based automation tools like NetMiko and Ansible, orchestration provided by Network Services Orchestration (NSO), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) lifecycle management with Elastic Services Controller (ESC), and network operations automation with WAN Automation Engine (WAE).

The CSAU training is imperative for acquiring the foundational knowledge vital for SPAUI v1.0 course success.
Please note, 300-535 is merely a concentration exam. Such exams allow you to customize your credentials as per your chosen technical areas of focus. To achieve CCNP Service Provider and Cisco Certified DevNet Professional accreditations, you must also clear 350-501 SPCOR and 350-901 DEVCOR core exams.
CCNP Service Provider: 300-510 SPRI or 300-515 SPVI. Cisco DevNet Professional: 300-435 ENAUTO, 300-835 CLAUTO, 300-635 DCAUTO, 300-735 SAUTO, 300-910 DEVOPS, 300-915 DEVIOT, or 300-920 DEVWBX.
No, only 300-535 SPAUTO is sufficient.
Automation APIs and Protocols, Network Device Programmability, and Automation and Orchestration Platforms (30% each).
The 24 CE (Continuing Education) credits you receive after completing the Cisco SPAUI v1.0 course can be used for recertification, as barring the CCIE, exams for all other credentials are valid only for three years.
