CISCO APPLICATION-ORIENTED NETWORK PRODUCT
This course provides knowledge and hands-on experience for students in the new industry category of Cisco®
Application-Oriented Networking (AON). Students will gain knowledge about the functions of AON modules on a
Cisco 3845 Integrated Services Router networked with Linux servers and using an Oracle database. Through lab
exercises students will configure AON network settings, bladelets, and implementation policies. In addition, lab
exercises include extracting Extensible Markup Language (XML) message content using XPATH expressions;
validating XML message content; using promiscuous mode (PMode); using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
solution components and completing security operations such as encryption, authentication, and authorization.
Students will see how Cisco AON provides a common infrastructure and facilitates new architectures such as a
service-oriented architecture (SOA). Through hands-on activities and lectures, this course provides important
knowledge needed for building solutions using Cisco AON; it provides the required foundation for advanced courses
in AON development.
