About Cisco SD-WAN and LiveAction

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.
