What you’ll learn

The rise of cloud-based applications and IoT is impacting existing wide area networks across all industries. The need to increase bandwidth, optimize cloud connectivity, and improve security posture is challenging with traditional WAN architectures.

Cisco SD-WAN is a cloud-delivered WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly drops WAN costs, reduces the time to deploy services, build application resiliency, and provides a robust security architecture for hybrid networks.

Cisco SD-WAN supports third-party API integration, allowing for even greater simplicity, customization, and automation in day-to-day operations. In addition, Cisco SD-WAN includes the common routing protocols that are critical for all enterprise SD-WAN deployments, such as Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).

Through a single dashboard called vManage, Cisco SD-WAN provides:

  • Transport independence: Guaranteeing zero network downtime, Cisco SD-WAN automates application flexibility over multiple connections, such as the Internet, MPLS, and wireless 4G LTE.

  • Network services: Rich networking and security services are delivered with a few simple clicks. WAN optimization, cloud security, firewalling, IPS, and URL filtering can be deployed wherever needed across the SD-WAN fabric from a single location.

  • Endpoint flexibility: Cisco SD-WAN can simplify connectivity across branches, campuses, data centers, or cloud environments, extending the SD-WAN fabric wherever you need it to go. Whether physical or virtual, a variety of Cisco SD-WAN platforms gives you unparalleled choice, ensuring that your specific business needs are met.



CCNA | 1 Month

Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching is a certification program for entry-level network engineers that helps maximize your investment in foundational networking knowledge and increase the value of your employer’s network.
