SDWFND: Cisco SD WAN Operation and Deployment

This Cisco SD-WAN Operation and Deployment (SDWFND) course provides an overview of the Cisco® Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution and SD-WAN components. Learn how to create, manage, and operate a secure extensible network using Cisco SD-WAN products. Gain the skills to configure, operate, and monitor overlay routing in a secure extensible network whilst developing an understanding of the policies and Quality of Service (QoS) deployed 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.

Audience

Engineers involved in the implementation of a Cisco SD-WAN environment.

Prerequisites

Attendees should meet the following pre-requisites:

  • Strong understanding of enterprise wide area network design
