Course Overview:

Enterprise Network Core and WAN Essentials Training v1.0 (ENCWE) – Hands-on

The IWAN Boot Camp presents concepts, routing platforms, technologies, and services that are required for a comprehensive approach to effectively design, manage, and control a Cisco Intelligent Wide Area Network.

This Enterprise Network Core and WAN Essentials Training v1.0 (ENCWE) course leads you from discovery of the existing network and current issues, planning, and design to day-to-day operations. The course is supported by an expansive infrastructure, including ISR-AX and ASR-AX routers, WAAS modules, Applications Visibility and Control functionality, Performance Based Routing, and security features including DMVPN, TrustSec, and Zone Based Firewalls, in addition to Cloud Connectors and network management tools. You will learn how the Cisco Intelligent WAN supports a transport independent solution, in conjunction with direct Internet access that allows for the ability of the customer to add cloud based applications, BYOD devices, high bandwidth applications such as video, as well as guest access at the branch while providing the customer with a great return on investment. You will get a hands on experience with the power of the Intelligent WAN, and explore all the latest features that support a next generation branch routing experience.
