Cisco WAN Segment Routing Demo – Realizing Your WAN/MAN Orchestration Dreams
For the most part, managing a wide area network (WAN) and metropolitan area network (MAN) is tedious, especially with a software-defined network (SDN). Between complex orchestration needs, limited scalability, and complex protocols — wouldn’t it be great if there were a simpler way to meet your SDN orchestration dreams? Let Cisco help your dream become a reality with Segment Routing.
SDxCentral’s Scott Raynovich joined Cisco’s Technical Marketing Engineers Jose Liste and Derek Tay as they demonstrated how Segment Routing can be utilized to help achieve scalable end-to-end policy, operational simplicity, and better utilization of the installed infrastructure thanks to centralized optimization. During the demonstration, the presenters cover:
- Cisco WAN Automation Engine (WAE) acting as a controller of an MPLS Segment Routing network built with ASR 9000 and XRv devices
- Programmatic access to Cisco WAE requesting instantiation of traffic engineering policies in the network
- Path computation element (PCE)-initiated Segment Routing traffic engineering policies
- Automatic re-optimization of existing paths triggered by network topology changes for link failures and link performance degradation
