Welcome to Cisco SD-WAN Automation Consciousness Month!

On the earth of tool and equipment building, API and automation equipment have turn out to be crucial for customizing and streamlining operational duties. By way of leveraging those equipment, builders can create environment friendly workflows that save time and scale back mistakes whilst additionally bettering the whole high quality in their merchandise.

Cisco SD-WAN is an SD-WAN product designed to simplify WAN networking. With its complex automation and programmability options, Cisco SD-WAN permits builders to create custom designed workflows that beef up community efficiency and scale back operational overhead. On this three-week program, we will be able to discover the way to use other API and automation equipment to paintings with Cisco SD-WAN automation and achieve hands-on enjoy with those robust equipment.

Week 1: REST API Fundamentals and SD-WAN REST APIs

Our first week will kick off with a webinar that introduces you to the fundamentals of REST API and the way it works with Cisco SD-WAN. You’ll be informed in regards to the various kinds of API requests and responses and the way to paintings with SD-WAN REST APIs particularly.

After the webinar, you’ll give you the option to wait a web based workshop the place you’ll be able to observe the use of Postman to execute easy queries and navigate API documentation. We’ll supply get admission to to the SD-WAN 20.10 Sandbox and the SD-WAN Programmability Finding out Lab, which gives you hands-on enjoy with those equipment.

Week 2: Cisco SD-WAN Use Instances

In week two, we’ll dive into Cisco SD-WAN use circumstances, with a webinar on Day 0 eventualities. You’ll learn to use IaC (Infrastructure-as-Code) to provision SD-WAN controllers and to onboard department gadgets in multi-cloud atmosphere.

After the webinar, we’ll host a web based workshop the place you’ll get to observe hands-on with Day 2 use circumstances and use the SD-WAN Programmability APIs to discover tracking, statistics, alarms, troubleshooting and growing customized dashboards the use of MongoDB.

Week 3: Sastre and Automation Toolset
