The Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Security and Cloud Solutions (SDWSCS) course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to implement secure and cloud-ready Cisco SD-WAN solutions. Participants will learn how to design, configure, and troubleshoot SD-WAN security features and integrate cloud services into their SD-WAN deployments. The course emphasizes the security aspects of SD-WAN and prepares participants to secure their SD-WAN infrastructure effectively.
- Basic understanding of networking concepts, including IP addressing and routing protocols.
- Familiarity with Cisco SD-WAN architecture and components.
- Knowledge of Cisco IOS-XE and Cisco ISR/ASR routers.
- Understanding of security principles and technologies.
- Familiarity with cloud computing concepts and services.
The course will utilize a combination of instructor-led lectures, hands-on labs, and group discussions. Participants will have access to virtual lab environments where they can practice configuring and managing Cisco SD-WAN security and cloud solutions. The instructor will provide guidance, demonstrations, and real-world examples to facilitate understanding and practical application of the course material.
