Cisco IWAN Automation and Orchestration Solution
Configuring Cisco IWAN can be a very complex process with multiple features (PFR, AVC, PBR, NBAR, DMVPN etc) and deployment models (HA, Non-HA, Dual Internet, Hybrid etc). Because of configuration complexity, network administrators spend up to months on-boarding new branches or converting existing branches to IWAN. This complexity also results in frequent human errors, which makes the network vulnerable to security attacks.
By using the best of breed NCX Orchestration platform, you can automate ANY network service ANY technology or architecture including Cisco IWAN, ANY vendor, platform, or device type that uses ANY Southbound Interface. Unlike scripting, NCX uses industry-standard IETF YANG models and customers and system integrators can easily modify or extend these models to fit business requirements, without requiring vendor assistance. NCX has out of the box IWAN service model and configures branches as per the Cisco Validated Design (CVD). NCX enables Cisco IWAN customers to on-board hundreds of branches in greenfield and brownfield deployments within days, instead of months.
In addition to IWAN branches, NCX automates branches with traditional physical CPE devices (Non-IWAN) as well as Virtual CPE devices. The same NCX solution orchestrates Data Centers consisting of Multi-Vendor Physical, Virtual and SDN devices.
