ENSDWI v2.0 – Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions
5 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Networking

Course Details

The Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions (ENSDWI) v2.0 course gives you training about how 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 looks at 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).

Objectives

  • 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
