You'll learn advanced procedures and use cases for Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) in software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) administration. This course is focused specifically on those two protocols and how they enable and extend SD-WAN functionality. You'll learn the theory, but you'll also practice first-hand in virtual labs and simulations.

How to Configure Cisco SD-WAN Routing with OSPF and BGP FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
This course assumes a lot of knowledge with software-defined networking and at least a bit of experience configuring routing protocols on Cisco hardware. Experienced network administrators should take this course, as well as network engineers. If your job involves administering Cisco equipment for SD-WANs or troubleshooting advanced routing protocols, take this BGP and OSPF course.
This course is a great way to prepare for SD-WAN sections of Cisco certifications, but it's not associated with any one exam. This course doesn't tie in to any one cert, instead it's designed to explain the concepts of using OSPF and BGP with SD-WAN routing and then give you experience doing only that.
Using advanced configurations of OSPF and BGP to optimize SD-WAN routing is a topic that applies to many Cisco professional-level certs, and the right one for you depends on what field of administration interests you most. You should look into the CCNP Data Center, CCNP Enterprise or CCNP Service Provider after this course.
You should take this course and learn to balance the flexibility and versatility of BGP with the predictability and specificity of OSPF. After this course, you'll understand how to be sure your entire network topology is mapped accurately and that your users can find their way into your network and to their network resources without problem.
