Solution Overview
The modern workforce is increasingly mobile, and business-critical applications are running over the Internet across multiple clouds. Traditional WAN architectures can’t keep up because of lack of available bandwidth, limited security and increased complexity, all of which prevents IT from responding to business needs faster.

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.​

Before you get started...

What are the drivers, roadblocks and benefits our customers are experiencing by adopting SD-WAN on their larger path toward building a software-defined network?

Goals & Objectives

The purpose of the Foundations Lab is to help you develop proficiency in deploying, managing and monitoring the Cisco SD-WAN solution. The lab guide is divided into standalone modules that can be completed independently providing for a flexible user consumption. 

The modules included in this lab are: 

  • Bringing up a new site
  • Create configuration templates
  • Implementing service-side VPN
  • Working with control policies
  • Understanding routing policies
  • Zone base firewall configuration
  • Software upgrade
  • Troubleshooting

Hardware & Software

From a topology perspective, this environment consists of single data center and three branch sites using Cisco vEdge-Cloud routers, interconnected via simulated MPLS and internet clouds.
