Viptela Training – Cisco SD-WAN

Session Detail:    Virtual 3 Day

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. Find complete recommendations and details below.WIDEPLOY is a five day, instructor led training designed to help students prepare for the CCNP Wireless Certification. The goal is to provide network professionals with information to prepare them to deploy wireless networks using Cisco controller and unified switching architectures policies and best practices, as well as ensure the proper implementation of mobility standars and proper configuration of all aspects of wireless components. WIDEPLOY provides students hands-on labs to reinforce concepts taught including deploying Cisco AireOS 8.0., Cisco Prime Infrastructure Release 2.2, and Cisco Mobility Services Engine Release 8.0 features.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.
