SDWOTS: Cisco SD-WAN Operations Troubleshooting and Best Practices

5 Days

Description

This five-day course covers the new deployment, options and features of version 20.x Cisco Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN). SD-WAN is an overlay architecture that overcomes the biggest drawbacks of traditional WAN. Students will learn how to design, configure and operate a Cisco SD-WAN utilizing any transport (MPLS, Broadband, LTE, VSAT etc.). Candidates will discuss and build an SD-WAN environment starting from Day 0 provisioning and will also be able to provide troubleshooting, management, policy control and application visibility across the enterprise network. This hands-on Course covers the Cisco SD-WAN product and contains extensive labs to reinforce the knowledge learned.

Course Objectives:

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Describe how to deploy SD-WAN
  • Configure SD-WAN environment
  • Deploy Plug and Play / Zero-Touch Provisioning
  • Implement SD-WAN Security
  • Configure SD-WAN Policies
  • Deploy, maintain and troubleshoot cEdge devices
  • Operate SD-WAN Devices and software
