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. The course qualifies for 47 Cisco Continuing Education Credits (CE).
