- Course Outline
Cisco Course v2.0 | CWAAS v4.1 | Prepares you for Cisco Exams 642-655 WAASFE or 642-654 WAASSE.
Discover, design, and explain the business value of Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization and application acceleration technologies in this course based on the latest WAAS 4.1.5d code. Design and deploy a solution using Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) that improves application performance over the WAN while enabling infrastructure consolidation. Learn to design a basic WAAS deployment and configure and troubleshoot WAN Acceleration Engine (WAE) devices, including WAN optimization and application acceleration components. Gain an understanding of Cisco WAAS optimization technology, design considerations, network integration, and system troubleshooting aspects as well as WAAS Mobile technology. In the remote labs, you'll install and configure WAE devices, configure and test application optimizers, and configure acceleration for CIFS and NFS. Learn about WAVE virtual blades deployments as well as WCCP interception methods. Explore the reporting features of WAAS to be able to quantify and demonstrate the savings brought by the system and verify that optimization is working properly with drill-down reporting.

Lab 1-1: Enhanced - Introduction to the Lab Topology and WAN-Bridge
WAN behaviors are key to this course. In our exclusive lab topology, you are in control of simulating any WAN situations as you can control the bandwidth, delay and packet loss.
Lab 2-1: Cisco WAAS Quick Start (Inline)
In this lab, you will learn how to quickly set up a WAN infrastructure starting from scratch using inline traffic interception mode.
Lab 2-2: Exclusive - DRE Caching Mechanics
This lab demonstrates DRE caching for hot content. You will learn a detailed approach to DRE cache utilization to understand the chunking mechanism employed by Cisco WAAS with the examples performed in this lab.
Lab 3-1: Configure NME-WAE and WCCP
Learn hands-on how to configure a NME WAE module for a Cisco Integrated Services (ISR) router utilizing WCCP traffic interception method.
Lab 3-2: Configure Custom Application Traffic Policies
Configure non-standard applications to be optimized by the WAEs. Learn how to build policies from scratch and report savings.
Lab 3-3: Configure the Branch Office Cisco WAVE 274 for Virtualization
WAAS 2.0 introduces virtualization on Cisco WAN Acceleration and Virtualization Engine (WAVE). Learn how to setup Windows 2008 server in virtual blade mode on a WAVE 274.
Lab 4-1: Configure NFS Acceleration
See how to set up and fine tune NFS acceleration using Cisco's own AO for theWAEs.
Lab 4-2: Enhanced - Configure MAPI Acceleration
In one of the most popular labs, you will set up WAEs to accelerate native Microsoft Exchange traffic between the servers and the Outlook clients. Using Cisco's MAPI AO, learn how to set it up and what to look for to ensure a successful implementation.
Lab 4-3: Exclusive - SQL Optimization
Learn how to get the best performance out of your infrastructure with non-obvious applications such as Microsoft SQL.
Lab 4-4: Exclusive - Scheduled Reports
This lab will demonstrate how to use the new WAAS 2.0 features to schedule reports and have them e-mailed for ease of use and management.
Lab 5-1: Design Labs
The design labs help you prepare and size up WAAS deployment to allow you to make informed decisions. Learn how to size appliances based on bandwidth, disk space, etc.
Lab 6-1: Configure WAAS Mobile Client
Configure and test the new WAAS mobile features in this lab.
