In this course, the students will be informed about the security features, functions and principles of the SD-WAN technology.


3 days (8h/day)

Training format

As a standard, we implement a full-time course (onsite or ILT *) in the ALEF Training Center. Upon agreement, it is possible to implement the course at the client's premises. The course can also be implemented online (vILT **) via a video conferencing platform - Cisco Webex meetings. Instructor- led virtual training is a combination of the best of a traditional classroom course and interactive training without having to leave your own office or the comfort of your home. Convince yourself of top quality transmission, video calls and effective team collaboration.


  • ILT - Instructor Led-Training * - instructor-led training in the classroom. ** vILT (Virtual Instructor-Led Training) - this is a form of distance learning, where the instructor conducts training from the classroom through an online platform to which students connect from their offices or the comfort of their home.


Solid understanding of design of Enterprise WAN networks, of Interior Gateway Protocols (IGP) and External Gateway Protocol (BGP) Routing protocols, and knowledge about Transport Layer Security (TLS) and IP Security (IPsec) technologies.
