This course covers new technology features of Cisco SD-WAN such as zero-touch provisioning, secure network bring-up, configuration using feature templates, configuration of Overlay Management Protocol (OMP) and policies for network traffic management. This 2-day instructor-led course provides an overview of the Cisco SD-WAN solution and SD-WAN components. Participants 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.

It is recommended, but not required, to have the following knowledge and skills before attending this course:

  • Strong understanding of enterprise wide area network design
  • Strong understanding of routing protocol operation, including both interior and exterior routing protocol operation
  • Familiarity with Transport Layer Security (TLS) and IP Security (IPSec)

Target Audience
This class is intended for students who need to be able to design, deploy, manage and troubleshoot Configuration Manager and Windows 10 in your environment. In the class there will be a high focus on automation and understanding how you can optimize your Windows 10 management using Configuration Manager. The class is always based on the latest available public build.
