Cisco SD WAN

Accelerate your SD WAN environment with LiveNX for Unified SD WAN Visibility, Policy Verification, and Rich Troubleshooting

SD-WAN Visibility and Insights

As more organizations look to move to software-defined (SD) WAN for improved network performance and reduced communication costs across their remote offices and distributed branches, IT professionals need advanced performance and analytics capabilities to gain insights into performance, QoS policies, path routing, and traffic management complexities to ensure this key initiative is a success. LiveNX enterprise network monitoring software monitors performance of both the physical underlay and the virtual overlays is key to delivering end-to-end service quality. Manage your SD-WAN network and deliver optimal network performance with support for most physical and virtual SD WAN solutions.

Lifecycle Best Practices for Cisco SD-WAN

  • Day 0 – PLAN: Select pilot sites when planning SD-WAN deployments, identify unsanctioned applications and end users, and establish network utilization baselines which are used for rightsizing.
  • Day 1 – VERIFY: Use LiveNX real-time visualization to verify Cisco SD-WAN policies and assure services are not impacted in the event of brownouts or abnormal events.
  • Day 2 – OPERATE: Monitor bandwidth and visualize path control so network administrators can manage performance and mitigate problems before they affect users. Use reporting on business applications to manage and optimize voice and video communications. Easily visualize issues and fix with the click of a mouse.

About Cisco SD-WAN and LiveAction

Christian Barr

Cisco initial success in the WAN space was iWAN (Cisco Intelligent WAN). LiveAction is preferred partnered of Cisco, providing the leading network monitoring solution for Cisco iWAN. LiveAction, at the time, also had a technology partnership with Viptela for visual analytics and reporting into the vEdge routers and the Viptela solution. Then in August of 2017, Cisco announced the close of its acquisition of Viptela to launch its Cisco SD WAN solution, creating a natural fit for LiveAction. Today, LiveAction is deeply integrated in SD WAN, Cisco DNA Center and most Cisco routers, switches and firewalls, providing unified network monitoring across Cisco network environments. But the benefits of LiveNX do not stop with Cisco as LiveNX provides a network monitoring and management solution across multi-vendor network environments and has supported over 100 different vendors.
