Course Content

The Cisco SD-WAN Operation and Deployment (ENSDW) v1.0 course provides an overview of the Cisco SD-WAN solution and SD-WAN components. Students will 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. Students will also learn about policies and quality of service (QoS) in the SD-WAN overlay network.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify the various components and architecture of the Cisco SD-WAN solution
  • Deploy vEdge routers in a secure extensible network.
  • Create templates to aide in the deployment and operation of the secure extensible network
  • Configure and verify overlay routing in the secure extensible network
  • Create simple policies to control traffic flow in the secure extensible network
