WWT's on-demand lab environments give you broad hands-on exposure to the leading SD-WAN vendors. Accompanying each lab are a lab guide and demo videos to help you learn about each solution. 
Cisco SD-WAN (Viptela)
Cisco SD-WAN is a cloud-first architecture that separates data and control planes, managed through the Cisco vManage console. You can quickly establish an SD-WAN overlay fabric to connect data centers, branches, campuses and colocation facilities to improve network speed, security and efficiency.​

While SD-WAN plays a pivotal role in unifying the network edge, security has become more top of mind when looking at these solutions. Cisco, recognizing this growing trend, has added to their solution Unified Threat Defense (UTD). This capability is deployed locally on an edge device and delivers an Enterprise Firewall, Intrusion Prevention, URL Filtering, Advanced Malware Protection and Umbrella DNS security integrations.
VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud
VeloCloud provides a broad SD-WAN feature set including deep application recognition, categorization and policy treatments for traffic prioritization, dynamic path selection and impairment remediation. It also enables scalable ease of deployment and management.

VeloCloud uses VCG’s to allow scalability. In a hosted solution there are hundreds of locations around the globe that can be used. Policy and configuration changes are pushed from the Orchestrator to the VCGs and then the VCGs will push the changes to the edge devices.
Silver Peak
Silver Peak's architecture begins with a robust, secure SD-WAN foundation but doesn’t stop there. Unique innovations provide added performance, visibility and control, security and extensibility. 

The only components used in this solution are an orchestrator and edge devices. The Orchestrator pushes the policy and configurations to the edge devices and gather stats on the network and edge device health. This allows operators to have a single pane of glass to see the status of the network as a whole, or drill down into any location or application.
