Implementing, Configuring, Monitoring, and Troubleshooting Cisco (Viptela) SDWAN (ICSDWAN)

 5 Days
Delivery Methods
 VILT    Private Group

In this Implementation and Configuration SDWAN Course, students will deploy and configure SD-WAN Controllers, vEdge Devices, and Cisco IOS-XE Devices. Students will create Multiple Device and CLI Templates that will allow Hundreds of devices to be deployed using only a few Centralized Templates. Students will create Security Policies to enable the Enterprise Firewall, IDS/IPS, URL Filtering, and Web Layer Security to protect and allow Enterprises to deploy Cloud applications as well as Direct Internet Access (DIA). Students will also create Local and Central Policies that enable a Centralized Policy control of WAN Routing and device QOS configuration and enforcement. Students will also learn how Cisco SD-WAN allows Enterprises to deploy an effective Cloud Solutions such as Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. Students will also learn how to Monitor and Troubleshoot the SD-WAN Solution.

*Our labs contain the NEW 8000 series routers!
