Cisco SD-WAN Training Course / Cisco Viptela Training Course

Before we get into discussing the details of I-Medita’s Cisco SD-WAN Training Course, let us get a sneak peek into how SD-WAN is fast emerging on the horizon of networking and is sure to take the networking world by a storm. Gartner (a global research and advisory firm) has forecast SD-WAN to grow at a 59% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2021 to become a $1.3 billion market.

I-Medita, a leader in the Networking Training domain; has been following the growing demand of SD-WAN solutions closely. I-Medita is very proud to be a pioneer; and probably one of the first institutes in India; to design the SD-WAN Training Course. With the SD-WAN Training course, it is our endeavor to make you future ready, and distinguish you as an authority in SD-WAN domain.

What is SD WAN?

SD-WAN means “software-defined networking in a wide area network (WAN)”. SD-WAN solutions are more advanced alternatives for traditional WAN routers. According to Gartner, SD-WAN solutions provide dynamic, policy-based, application path selection across multiple WAN connections and supports service chaining for additional services such as WAN optimization and firewalls.


What problems do SDN help resolve?

Modern day businesses are spread across countries and continents. Companies deploy MPLS based WAN (Wide Area Networks) to connect remote branch offices with data centers for a seamless access to applications and services required for performing business functions. With collaboration tools such as VoIP calling, live streaming video conferencing and more, it is imperative to have great connectivity and high bandwidth. With mobile workforces and a variety of devices being used to connect from remote places, IT departments are continuously working on expanding bandwidth and improving connectivity. However, expanding WAN capabilities is very costly and time consuming. SD-WAN products help overcome these challenges.

SD WAN products can be physical or virtual appliances that reside in offices or on the Cloud. With SD-WAN, businesses will be able to save significant amounts in capital and operation expenses. They will also provide superior connectivity and performance to end users. Hence it is imperative to be prepared for the future by learning SD-WAN implementation.
