The IWAN Application simplifies WAN deployments by providing a highly intuitive, policy-based interface that helps IT reduce network complexity and design for business intent. The business policy is automatically translated into network policies that are propagated across the network. This solution enables IT to accelerate the transition to hybrid WAN and quickly realize the benefits of the software-defined WAN (SD-WAN): lower costs, simplified IT, increased security, and optimized application performance.
The IWAN Application is prescriptive of the Cisco Validated Design and provisioning of its core pillars for a large number of sites from a centralized location. Upon power-up, the branch-office routers are automatically configured and ready to use. This architecture is based on open interfaces, a software-defined networking (SDN) services plane, and device-layer abstraction. This approach will allow full policy-directed deployment and operation of the network. IT can now meet line-of-business (LOB) time-to-market needs with automated functions that are propagated in minutes as you activate branch offices or roll out applications.
In this session, you will learn how the IWAN Application for the APIC-EM controller delivers the benefits of the Cisco IWAN and SD-WAN solution. We will show you:
- How devices are provisioned using plug and play without the user needing command-line interface (CLI) skills
- Visualization of branches and their status from a easy-to-manage GUI
- How to designate and control paths for an application or group of applications per business needs
