What you’ll learn in this course Intense class:

The Cisco SD-WAN Operation and Deployment (ENSDW)  course provides an overview of the Cisco® Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution and SD-WAN components. You 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. 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.
