Course overview

Versa Secure SD-WAN solution is one of the featured rich solutions in the market, it is the only true Multi-Tenant SASE architecture in the world.

Nowadays organizations are more involved with applications and especially cloud-based applications and infrastructures (SaaS and IaaS), so the quality of experience is getting more important day by day.

Reducing the deployment time, and complexity, having better control to the WAN, Application-based Traffic steering, and even considering SLA in the forwarding decisions are the important drivers to deploy SD-WAN solutions instead of Traditional WAN technologies.

In addition to that, having Secure Control and Data planes is one of the important key features. It even provides Next-Generation Firewall features on a single box on top of having a Versatile Network Operating system as a great edge router.

In this course we will go through the theory and design of Versa Networks SD-WAN solution, then we will do a step-by-step deployment of the most important features of the solution.

We will help you to understand the technology from scratch and deploy it in the virtual environment for testing, learning, and proof of concept, then we will make sure you will be able to deploy it in the production network.

The lab topology is well designed to simulate real-world challenges.

The instructor is explaining the technologies while he is configuring the lab (for every single part, which means this course is totally practical and also covers theory in a great way)

 As usual, Orhan Ergun offers you the best course!
