Overview

  • Course Overview
  • This 3 Day Viptela training course 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.
