Cisco SD-WAN and Next-Generation Security Bootcamp (SDWANB)

The Cisco SD-WAN & Security Bootcamp (SDWANB) v20.1.x course is an intensive 3-day instructor-led or virtual instructor-led training with heavy focus on how to deploy and configure the most relevant features of the SD-WAN solution. It covers both on-prem and cloud deployment details, and dives into the details of control, data and security policies. Students spend more than 50% of time in a dedicated lab environment, where they deploy the SD-WAN solution from scratch, including controllers bring-up, device templates configuration, control, data and security policies definitions, and deployment. The SDWANB course is part of Cisco Black Belt Academy Aligned Content. It belongs to the stage: Black Belt SD-WAN Deployment stage 2.


Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Design and Deploy on-prem and cloud SD-WAN controllers
  • Utilize device templates to centralize configuration management
  • Design and implement control policies
  • Design and implement data policies
  • Design and implement direct Internet access
