Cisco Wan Automation Engine
Features and Capabilities
You can now automate time-intensive manual operations in service provider networks with the Cisco WAN Automation Engine. Tasks that can be automated include managing, controlling, analyzing, and improving network performance and capacity planning. Here are some potential use cases:
Demand Admission Requests
Service providers can intelligently consider content location as well as network impact using the Cisco WAN Automation Engine when placing the demand. At the same time, you can help ensure the network stays healthy.
When an enterprise customer wants to move a cache on demand, the Cisco WAN Automation Engine first determines the best path. Then, it programs a label-switched path using Path Computation Element Protocol (PCEP).
Load Balancing Label Switched Paths
It’s important for service providers to efficiently use expensive resources, such as high–cost or transoceanic links. The Cisco WAN Automation Engine helps ensure that the most expensive network resources are fully optimized, assigning best-load share metrics using PCEP.
Policy-Based Path Planning
To meet service-level agreements (SLAs), service providers can use the Cisco WAN Automation Engine to provision disjoint LSPs from an access to an aggregation router. The engine can also help ensure they remain on different paths even under failure conditions.
