NIL received Cisco Powered validated Service for SD-WAN, which is part of Cisco's Cloud & Managed Service Provider partner program, for its expertise in Cisco SD-WAN technology. NIL has delivered worldwide in the last 1.5 years more than 165 3-day SD-WAN bootcamps, with 50% personal lab time.

In the NIL course Cisco Secure SD-WAN Bootcamp (SDWANB) the focus is on the fundamentals of the solution; it enables participants to deploy the solution in a lab, learn about the architecture and fundamental principles.
However, to actually design and operate a real-life SD-WAN network, more in-depth knowledge is required. WAN Edge devices are CSR1000v (cEdge) and vEdge Cloud virtual routers running IOS XE 17.3 / 20.3 release.
Based on that experience, NIL has now developed Cisco Secure SD-WAN Advanced Design and Operations (SDWANBDO) v. v.17.3 20.3, a high-end training, focused on the detailed design and operation of a real-life network, with 50% personal lab exercises.

The SDWANBDO course is part of Cisco Black Belt Academy Aligned Content. It belongs to the stage: Blackbelt SD-WAN deployment stage 3.
