Overview

 

The Cisco® WAN Automation Engine (WAE) Topology Service is a lightweight service that enables Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO) to automate node discovery in a network. The service leverages WAE key capabilities without requiring a WAE license.

 

NSO (enabled by Tail-f) simplifies the process of provisioning services in both physical and virtual networks. It decouples network services from specific components, while automatically configuring the network according to the service specifications.

 

This demonstration requires familiarity with networking architecture and routing fundamentals, and it highlights scenarios in which you use Cisco WAE to interact with a segment routing-enabled network.
