Cisco’s acquisition of Viptela has shifted the focus of delivering cloud-first software-defined networking solutions to their customers. With the vision to deliver intent-based networking – that is, network solutions that conform to what’s important to the business – Cisco SD-WAN (formerly Viptela) accelerates the delivery of that vision to the enterprise.
Download the Solution Brief to understand the key challenges with regard to SD-WAN visibility:
Day 0: PLAN CHALLENGE: Knowing what you need to plan for a new solution isn’t easy. Where do all network devices exist? What applications are my business users using, and at what peak times? How much bandwidth is required to prevent the help desk from lighting up?
Day 1: DEPLOY CHALLENGE: What do you need to know for Cisco SD-WAN rollout? Are you migrating from Cisco IWAN? Which applications are taking MPLS vs Internet paths? Can you see and visualize vEdge and ISRs, ASRs, and public or private cloud platforms in one view?
Day 2: OPERATE CHALLENGE: What do you need to reduce MTTR for network operations of a hybrid WAN beyond the vEdge? Can you visualize real-time AND historical traffic? Can you manage application flow and proactively detect anomalies?
