Why study this course

This course provides an overview of the Cisco Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution and SD-WAN components.

You’ll learn how to create, manage, and operate a secure extensible network using Cisco SD-WAN products. The course covers how to configure, operate, and monitor overlay routing in a secure extensible network. In addition, you will learn about policies and Quality of Service (QoS) in the SD-WAN overlay network.

The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that facilitates digital and cloud transformation for enterprises. Cisco SD-WAN significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services. With Cisco SD-WAN, you can build a robust security architecture that’s crucial for hybrid networks and provides a strong policy framework.

This course will help you learn to use Cisco SD-WAN to:

  • Establish transport-independent WAN for lower cost and higher diversity

  • Meet SLAs for business-critical and real-time applications

  • Provide end-to-end segmentation for protecting critical enterprise compute resources

  • Extend seamlessly into the public cloud

  • Optimise the user experience for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications
