Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions v2.0 (ENSDWI v2.0)

Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions v2.0 (ENSDWI v2.0)

Course Fee: $3,499.00

Course Description

The Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions (ENSDWI) v2.0 course trains you to design, deploy, configure, and manage your Cisco® Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution in a large-scale live network, including how to migrate from legacy WAN to SD-WAN. You will learn best practices for configuring routing protocols in the data center and the branch, as well as how to implement advanced control, data, and application-aware policies. The course also covers SD-WAN deployment and migration options, placement of controllers, how to deploy WAN Edge devices, and how to configure Direct Internet Access (DIA) breakout. The course examines the different Cisco SD-WAN security options available, such as application-aware enterprise firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), URL filtering, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) proxy, and Cisco Umbrella® Secure Internet Gateway (SIG).


Course Objectives

After taking this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the Cisco SD-WAN solution and how modes of operation differ in traditional WAN versus SD-WAN
  • Describe options for Cisco SD-WAN cloud and on-premises deployment
  • Explain how to deploy WAN Edge devices
  • Review the Zero-Touch Provisioning (ZTP) process and examine technical specifics for on-premises deployment
  • Review the device configuration template and describe new features of device configuration templates
  • Describe options for providing scalability, high availability, and redundancy
  • Explain how dynamic routing protocols are deployed in an SD-WAN environment, on the service side and transport side
  • Describe Cisco SD-WAN policy concepts, which includes how policies are defined, attached, distributed, and applied
  • Define and implement advanced control policies, such as policies for custom topologies and service insertion
  • Identify and implement advanced data policies, such as policies for traffic engineering and QoS
  • Define and implement an Application-Aware Routing (AAR) policy
  • Implement Direct Internet Access (DIA) and Cisco SD-WAN Cloud OnRamp options
  • Describe Cisco SD-WAN security components and integration
  • Describe how to design pure and hybrid Cisco SD-WAN solutions, as well as how to perform a migration to Cisco SD-WAN
  • Describe Cisco SD-WAN Day-2 operations, such as monitoring, reporting, logging, troubleshooting, and upgrading
  • Describe Cisco SD-WAN support for multicast
