Overview

 

The Cisco® WAN Automation Engine(WAE) is a powerful, flexible, software-defined networking (SDN) platform. It abstracts and simplifies your WAN environment while making it fully open and programmable. WAE network-modeling technology enables real-time analysis of traffic needs and traffic placement in complex WAN topologies.

 

This demonstration uses Cisco Network Service Orchestrator (NSO) to create a cross-domain VPN service using Segment Routing On-Demand Next-Hop (SR ODN) and network details discovered by WAE. NSO then deploys the details using PCEP to IOS XR Transport Controller (XTC).
