Cisco IOS Autonomic Networking Features Roadmap

Last Published Date:December 20, 2014

This roadmap lists the features documented in the Autonomic Networking Configuration Guide. This roadmap is organized by software releases and features available in that release. For any feature, click the link in the “Where Documented” column to view the document that contains information about the feature.

Feature, Platform, and Release Support

The following table lists Cisco IOS Autonomic Networking feature support in the various Cisco IOS software release trains. This table lists the earliest release of each software train first and the features in alphabetical order within the release. This table lists only the software release that introduced support for a given feature, on a platform, in a given software release train. Unless noted otherwise, subsequent releases of that software release train also support that feature, on a platform.

Use Cisco Feature Navigator to find information about platform support and Cisco software image support. To access Cisco Feature Navigator, go to www.cisco.com/​go/​cfn. An account on Cisco.com is not required.

IP Tunnel: Autonomic Networking Support

Cisco ME 3600 Series Ethernet Access Switches

Cisco ME 3600X Series Ethernet Access Switches

Cisco ME 3800 Series Ethernet Access Switches

Autonomic Control Plane (ACP) is built by building hop-by-hop IPv6 generic routing encapsulation (GRE) tunnels between the pairs of autonomic neighbors. The GRE tunnels require a valid source and destination addresses on the physical interfaces. As the GRE Tunnels are hop-by-hop, autonomic networking uses the link local addresses of the physical interfaces as the source or destination addresses of the tunnels.
