Hi,

Anyone know of any good resources for this, either free or paid (I might get work client to sponsor).

Looking to get started on these topics which are inside the IE Ent Infrastructure in 2021.

Cheers,
Rob

Hello Robert

You can get started on these topics if you take a look at the CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure course here on NetworkLessons. In it you will find Unit 2: Software-Defined Infrastructure. There you will see the topics required to be covered for the CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure exam.

This is a good starting point for you to get acquainted with these topics. Some include topologies and labs that you can use to gain further understanding and learn about them. As you go through them, if you have any questions, you know where to find us.

I hope this has been helpful!

Guys if you want more details on this topic :
You have the following guides available on cisco.com

Hi Team,
I want to know that is this course is designed for the CISCO SD-WAN 300-415 ENSDWI Exam. Can we pass this exan if we go through and practice all the lessons in this part.

Hello Kirshan

No, this course does not cover all of the material necessary for the 300-415 ENSDWI exam. It is an introduction to SD-WAN that is part of the CCNP ENCOR 350-401 course. However, Rene is currently working on an SD-WAN course that covers many of the topics required for the ENSDWI, and that can be found here:

More and more new lessons are being added over the next few weeks, and you can be informed of these if you check back at the New Lessons page below:

Although the full ENSDWI is not yet being covered in full on the site, this course will give you a good foundation and starting point for this certification exam if you choose to tackle it.

I hope this has been helpful!

HI Team,

Can you please explain the in detail process starting from the point where we connect the vEdge or cEdge to the internet till the point overlay tunnels establishes.

Hello Kirshan

I apologize for the delay in answering this post. Cisco has a very detailed walkthrough of how the overlay network can be created. You can find it at the following link:

I believe this will give you a very clear picture of what you’re looking for. If you have any more specific questions, please feel free to ask!

I hope this has been helpful!

Hi Team,

This is Mazhar Hussain From Pakistan . I need your support in order to configure SDWAN using MPLS data link IPSEC tunnels.

We have hub and spoke scenario where every branch have two redundant links from 2 different ISPs and same is at hub side where 2 aggregation links are available. How can I configure SDWAN using IPSEC VPN tunnels interfaces .

Hello Mazhar

Implementing such a scenario is by no means trivial, and is difficult to summarize in a forum post.
However, here are some guidelines to keep in mind as you tackle this problem.

The first thing I suggest is to take a look at Rene’s course on SD-WAN:

This will give you an overview of the necessary background needed for SD-WAN implementation using Cisco’s Viptela solution. Now once you’ve gone over that, you’ll be in a better position to refine your solution and determine more specific questions in your process. By letting us know those more specific questions, we’ll be in a better position to help you in your design.

I hope this has been helpful!
