Course Overview

This self-paced, online-delivered course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of Versa Networks Secure SD-WAN solutions, and the fundamentals of configuration and administration of a Versa Networks Secure SD-WAN deployment. It includes fundamental instruction on network overlays and underlays, routing, and the different SD-WAN topologies. It provides instruction on the Versa Networks components Versa Director, Versa Analytics, and Versa OS (VOS)™, and the building blocks of configuration: Workflows, Templates, and Service Templates.

The course puts these concepts into practice with step-by-step, hands-on lab exercises which allow participants to gain conceptual and practical knowledge and skills in the configuration, deployment, basic administration, and monitoring of a Versa Secure SD-WAN environment. The lab guide is included with the self-paced online course. Lab access is not included.

The course content is presented in step-by-step format that includes graphic visuals and detailed notes to cover the concepts in the course.

This course is based on VOS 16.1-R2-S10.

Format: Text and Graphics only. No audio.
