Implementing Cisco Virtual Wide Area Application Services (CPLL-VWAAS-V1)

This course teaches learners how to deploy, configure, operate, maintain and support a solution using Cisco Virtual Wide Area Application Services (VWAAS) that provides performance optimization for application data over WAN.

The learner will also understand the Cisco VWAAS optimization technologies, protocols, services, functions, advanced features and operation. The learner will learn how to implement, integrate, install, manage and troubleshoot Cisco VWAAS solutions in diverse data center virtualization environments such as in enterprise networks and virtual private clouds. In this course the learner will also gain a comprehensive hands-on VWAAS labs experience.

This Cisco self-paced course is designed to be as effective as classroom training. Course content is presented in easily-consumable segments via both instructor video and text. Interactivity is enabled through discovery labs, content review questions, and graded challenge labs and tests. This makes the learning experience hands-on, increasing course effectiveness, and provides students direct feedback on how well they have mastered the material. And gamification features are built in, including earning badges and a leaderboard, to encourage better performance.
