VWAAS - Implementing Cisco Virtual Wide Area Application Services v1.0


Duration: 5 days

The Implementing Cisco Virtual Wide Area Application Services (VWAAS) v1.0 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 learner will gain a comprehensive hands-on VWAAS labs experience.


Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand and describe the benefits and values of WAN application data optimization and acceleration services provided by Cisco VWAAS network services virtualization platform
  • Describe the Cisco VWAAS implementation options in Enterprise Data Center office, Branch office and Virtual Private Cloud networks
  • Understand how to manage Cisco VWAAS using VWAAS Central Manager GUI and Command-line interface
  • Configure, manage, monitor and troubleshoot Cisco VWAAS solutions
  • Understand Cisco AppNav and configure the Cisco VWAAS AppNav cluster
  • Configure VWAAS for using Akamai Connect features and Akamai Connect Servers on Content Delivery Networks
  • Understand how Cisco vNAM integrates with Cisco VWAAS to provide traffic optimization metrics and statistics
  • Understand how Cisco VWAAS can be deployed on Virtual Private Clouds (VPC)
