Every time we send our student's survey's you all want to know more about the new Cisco 9800 controllers, well here we go. Cisco 9800 Rockstar is the first of a new SERIES of courses around Cisco's new 9800 series Wireless LAN Controllers, and of course the 9K Access points, and all the great tech that comes along with it such as Deployment options, HA, ISE, DNAC, MDM, WebAuth, Flex, Bridging and more. 

There are so many NEW things to cover, we have decided to do this course in a series beginning with Cisco 9800 Rockstar, which covers all of the critical things engineers should know to deploy new Cisco 9800 series controllers, including design, deployment, upgrades, and various migrations to a Cisco 9K Wireless architecture.
