SDWOTS Training

SD-WAN: Advanced Operations & Troubleshooting Bootcamp (SDWOTS) v1.0 is a five-day course. We will cover Cisco Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) which is an overlay architecture that overcomes the biggest drawbacks of traditional WAN. Students will be able to operate a Cisco SD-WAN over any transport (MPLS, Broadband, LTE, VSAT etc.) and provide troubleshooting, management, policy control and application visibility across the enterprise. This hands-on Course covers the Cisco SD-WAN product and contains extensive labs to reinforce the knowledge learned.
