Viptela Training – Cisco SD-WAN 9/5/18

09/05/18 - 09/07/18

$2995

This Viptela training is targeted to engineers and technical personnel involved in deploying, implementing, operating and optimizing Cisco SD-WAN solution (Viptela), both in enterprise and Service Provider environments, including advanced features for Multi-tenant deployment, QoS, application performance routing, configuration templates, control policies and troubleshooting common operating issues.

The Cisco SD-WAN course is lab-intensive, and objectives are accomplished mainly through hands on learning. Students taking this Viptela training course should be familiar with Wide Area Networks (WANs) in a variety of ways, which can be found below.

Ideal candidates for this course include engineering and planning teams who evaluate WAN evolution, personnel involved in SD-WAN Design, Implementation and Operation, and others.

Course Objectives

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Know and understand Cisco’s SD-WAN concepts, features, benefits, terminology and the way this approach innovates common administrative tasks on today’s networks.
  • Differentiate and explain each of the building blocks of SD-WAN Solution
  • Explain the concept of “Fabric” and the different node types that conform it (Fabric Edge Nodes, Control Plane Nodes, Management Nodes and Orchestration Nodes)
  • Identify the roles and functions of vEdge, vSmart, vManage and vBond entities
  • Know and understand the Zero Touch Provisioning Model
  • Know and understand the Zero Trust Provisioning Model
  • Identify Overlay Management Protocol (OMP) as a key element of the SD-WAN solution and the role it plays for Control Plane setup
  • Understand segmentation of SD-WAN fabric, through the use of VPN’s (VRF’s)
  • Understand the role that templates have in SD-WAN solution, differentiate templates and know how to apply them
  • Differentiate Control, Data and Application Route Policies and know how they are used in SD-WAN
  • Identify and apply QoS mechanisms to SD-WAN fabric
  • Discuss Use Cases for SD-WAN
