CCNP Enterprise ENSDWI – Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions

Cisco CCNP Enterprise Course

The ENSDWI Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions is part of the Cisco CCNP Enterprise track. The main objective of this course is to provide a comprehensive overview of how to design, deploy, configure, and manage the Cisco® Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution at scale, including how to migrate from legacy WAN solutions to SD-WAN. You will learn best practices for configuring routing protocols for the data center and branch locations, as well as how to implement advanced controls and application-aware policies. The course also covers SD-WAN deployment and migration options, controller placement, how to deploy and replace branch devices, and how to configure Direct Internet Access (DIA) breakout. The course also examines the different Cisco SD-WAN security options available, such as application-aware enterprise firewalls, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), URL filtering, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) proxy, and Cisco Umbrella® Secure Internet Gateway (SIG). The Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions (ENSDWI) course prepares participants for the 300-415 exam.

Course Objectives

The main objectives of the Implementing Cisco SD-WAN Solutions (ENSDWI) Course are:

  1. Understand Cisco SD-WAN deployment options.
  2. Deploy WAN Edge devices.
  3. Explore redundancy, high availability, and scalability.
  4. Understand Cisco SD-WAN policy configuration basics.
