Assuming that you understand what is SD-WAN, In this blog I would tell you about how to pursue SDWAN Specialist SilverPeak i.e. SPSP

In my opinion, you can pick up SD-WAN learning with a basic good understanding of CCNA having a bit of MPLS knowledge. However, this is an emerging technology which has its plus and flaws. A comparative study on how the normal scenario of working and SD-WAN benefit to it will give you better view on why SD-WAN and its future prospectus.

Silverpeak is leading SD-WAN Tech, I personally found its been used in most of Europe. There is a great opportunity to learn now and gain certification without any spend, so don’t miss the chance.

At the moment, SilverPeak Offers below list of Certification levels.

202 – Deploying SD-WAN Technologies (DST) – Introduction level giving you SPSP certification
221 – Advanced SD-WAN Deployments (ASD)  – In-depth working and complex deployments giving you SPSX certification.
225 – Troubleshooting SD-WAN Networks (TSN) – Network Operations and Maintenance Study.
230 – Designing SD-WAN Networks (DSN) –  Design, build, and size Silver Peak SD-WAN solutions
