Cisco Intelligent WAN with Akamai Connect

Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) with Akamai Connect is a fully integrated solution from Cisco and Akamai that provides the next-generation application and network optimization. It integrates the best-in-class advanced WAN optimization and intelligent caching techniques directly into the Cisco Integrated Services Routers with Application Experience (ISR-AX) at the branch office. It effectively extends the Akamai Intelligent Platform across the last mile from the Internet directly into the branch office with edge caching, thus significantly offloading traffic from the WAN and providing a superior user experience over bandwidth-constrained networks. Akamai Connect provides faster content delivery regardless of device, connectivity, or cloud, including the corporate private cloud and the public Internet cloud, where most business traffic traverses. Each Cisco 2911-AX, 2921-AX, and 2951-AX ISR, Cisco 3900-AX and 4400-AX Series ISR-AX, and Cisco 4351 and 4331-AX router bundle also includes the option to add Akamai Connected Cache licenses.

The Cisco 4000 Integrated Services Router Family includes the Cisco 4451-X-AX, 4431-AX, 4351-AX, 4331-AX, and 4321-AX routers. Each Cisco 4000-AX bundle includes licenses for IP Base, Security (SEC), Application Experience (AppX), and Right to Use (RTU) for Wide Area Application Services (WAAS). Cisco 4000-AXV bundles also include licenses for Unified Communications (UC) and Cisco Unified Border Element.

Cisco 4451-X-AX Series Integrated Services Routers

The Cisco 4451-X-AX ISR includes IP Base, Security, and AppX licensing with RTU for 2500 ISR WAAS or virtual WAAS (vWAAS) connections. The Cisco 4451-AXV also includes licenses for Cisco Packet Voice DSP Module 4-64 (PVDM4-64, Unified Communications (UC), and CUBE (refer to Table 1).

Cisco 3900-AX, 2900-AX, and 1900-AX Series Integrated Services Routers

The Cisco 3900-AX ISR includes licenses for Data, Security, and WAAS Express (WAASX), and a RTU for 2500 WAAS or vWAAS connections. The Cisco 2911-AX includes a 1300 WAAS or vWAAS RTU license. You can use this RTU on any combination or multiples of modules for WAAS and/or vWAAS connections on the Cisco 2900-AX or 3900-AX Series Routers, respectively. The Cisco 1900-AX Series includes licenses for Data, Security, and WAASX.

Options when ordering follow (refer to Table 16):

The Cisco Services-Ready Engine (SRE): Enabling WAAS requires a Cisco SRE 710 or SRE 910.

The Cisco UCS E-Series module: Enabling vWAAS requires a Cisco UCS E-Series module.

The SRE or Cisco UCS E-Series module is not included by default with Cisco ISR-AX Routers when ordering, but is optional when ordering; not including by default gives you flexibility in choosing modules when ordering and enabling either WAAS or vWAAS. The RTU can be spread across multiple SRE and/or Cisco UCS E-Series modules in a single router.

The ISR-AX bundles include the option for purchase of SRE or Cisco UCS E-Series modules at a promotional price; when the SRE or Cisco UCS E-Series module is purchased separately it is not at the promotional price. Customers who will initially deploy WAAS Express but who plan to deploy full WAAS or vWAAS later are encouraged to buy the ISR-AX bundle with a SRE or Cisco UCS E-Series module to take advantage of the promotional pricing.

The Cisco 2900 and 3900-AX Series bundles also offer UC voice-enabled AXV bundles (refer to Table 17).

Notes:
1 TCP connection requirements vary by application; some applications consume multiple TCP connection resources for WAAS optimization.
2 Target WAN bandwidth is not limited in software or by any other system limit, but is rather provided as guidance for deployment sizing purposes.
3 Cisco 1905 and 1921 routers have fixed non-expandable memory. DRE is disabled on these platforms.
4 Typical WAN interfaces for maximum benefit with Cisco WAAS Express include T1/E1, 3G, and multi-T1, and smaller interfaces such as 256 or 384Kbps interfaces.
5 2.5GB DRAM included for WAAS-Express on Cisco 1941/2901/2911/2921-AX and for 2951-AX and 3925/3945-AX series routers 4GB DRAM is included for WAAS Express, the 1921-AX has 512MB DRAM only. 3925E/3945E-AX have 2GB DRAM by default and do not support WAAS Express.
6 Additional WAAS licenses are required for connections above the RTU limit.
7 Please verify the vWAAS target bandwidth rating is not greater than the router’s rating with services enabled. Some ISR routers will not support the full vWAAS 1300, 2500 or 6000 capacity.
8 For multiple WAAS instances WCCP for 2900/3900 series is needed to manage multiple node groups using UCS-E or SRE. It is recommended that all WAAS nodes in a WCCP node group have similar capacity/connection limits. So for example with 3900 series which includes 2500 TCP Connections, add one or two UCS-E modules each with vWAAS 2500 for up to 7500 total TCP connections on the router or a single 6k vWAAS instance per UCS-E module up to 8500 total TCP connections. Additional WAAS RTU license is required Multiple vWAAS instances on UCS-E modules is supported up to the max throughput of the router with services enabled.

AX Licensing for the Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Routers

The AX licensing for the Cisco 800 Series combines Cisco WAAS Express and Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC) in a way that is simple to order, configure, and deploy for optimized branch-office routing.

The AX licensing for the Cisco 800 Series consists of a combination of RTU software licenses and necessary DRAM memory that will get applied to the Cisco 800 Series Integrated Services Router:

Advanced IP License

WAAS Express RTU license

AVC RTU license

DRAM maximum memory upgrade

The AX Feature Set for the Cisco 800 Series is a selectable option that can be added when configuring a Cisco 880 or 890 Series ISR. Spare separate licenses may also be purchased and added to existing Cisco 880 or 890 Series Routers for these features.

Cisco Intelligent WAN with Akamai Connect

Each Cisco 2911, 2921, 2951-AX, 3900-AX Series and Cisco 4400-AX, 4351, and 4331-AX Series Router bundle also includes the option to add Akamai Connect licenses. Spare licenses may also be added to existing Cisco 2911, 2921, 2951-AX, 3900 Series, Cisco 4400-AX, 4351, and 4331-AX Routers with a WAAS or APP license that may be purchased separately (refer to Table 18).

APP License Product IDs for Cisco 1900, 2900, 3900, and 4400 Series Integrated
Services Routers

You can also purchase APP licenses and add them to Cisco 1905, 1921, 1941, 2900, 3900, or 4000 Series ISRs by purchasing the APP license as a separate line item. Each APP license includes the key IWAN components with no additional hardware needed for features, including DATA license features, Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN), Cisco Performance Routing Version 3 (PfRv3), AVC, Network Based Application Recognition 2 (NBAR2), quality of service (QoS), etc.

Customers may add a SRE module, Cisco UCS E-Series module, or onboard SSD + Memory module if they want to run WAAS, vWAAS, or some other hosted application. Or for WAAS Express a DRAM upgrade is required. All WAAS licensing is included with the APP license, so inclusion of the required hardware is all that is necessary. Note: The APP license does not include a SEC license. Table 19 gives the product IDs for ordering APP licenses.
