Introduction

ISC 6.0 is a follow-on release to ISC 5.2 with some functionality added and changed (see the "New and Changed Information for ISC 6.0" section) and problems fixed (see the "Problems Fixed in ISC 6.0" section).

URLs for base information about ISC 6.0 and an overview and suggested reading order of these documents is given in the Cisco IP Solution Center Getting Started and Documentation Guide, 6.0 (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ip_solution_center/6.0/roadmap/docguide.html).

ISC is a family of intelligent network management applications that helps reduce overall administration and management costs by providing automated resource management and rapid profile-based provisioning capabilities. ISC enables fast deployment and time to market of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Carrier Ethernet technologies. In addition, the ISC Traffic Engineering Management application is Cisco's exclusive planning and provisioning application for Cisco MPLS Traffic Engineering (MPLS-TE)-enabled routers. For Diagnostics, use MDE, which is an automated, decision tree analysis-based network management application that troubleshoots and diagnoses problems in MPLS Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). There are four separate applications in ISC 6.0, which can operate alone or as a suite in an L2/L3 Management Solution. These and Application Programing Interfaces (APIs) are all distributed on one product CD:

Cisco ISC MPLS VPN Management (ISC:MPLS)

Cisco ISC Layer 2 VPN and Carrier Ethernet Management (ISC:L2VPN/CE)

Cisco ISC Traffic Engineering Management (ISC:TEM)

Cisco MPLS Diagnostics Expert (MDE)

System Recommendations and Network Devices

The system recommendations and requirements are listed in Chapter 1, "System Recommendations" of the Cisco IP Solution Center Installation Guide, 6.0. This chapter also includes the network devices and related software supported with ISC 6.0.

The recommendation is to thoroughly review this list before even planning your installation, to be sure you have all the hardware and software needed for a successful installation.

Connect Name Limitation in FlexUNI/EVC Service Requests Resolved

New L2VPN-Related Template Variables

Restricting Spanning Tree Command for the ME3400 Device

Restricting Switchport Trunk Encapsulation dot1q Command on the CAT 6500

Support for IOS XR 3.7.2 Across All Blades on the ASR 9000 Platform Only

PW Redundancy Option for EVC Service

Support has been added for alternative termination of N-PE device for an EVC Service. This allows the use of an alternative termination device during fail over of the first N-PE. A new attribute, Enable PsuedoWire Redundancy, is available in the FlexUNI/EVC policy and service request workflows.

ASR 9000 Platform Support

The FlexUNI/EVC services have been extended to support EVC infrastructure features or switch-port CLIs on Cisco ASR 9000 devices running IOS XR.

FlexUNI/EVC ATM-Ethernet Interworking

Support has been added for interworking of a service with ATM and Ethernet protocols across the MPLS core or local switching. ATM-Ethernet interworking is supported through creation of a FlexUNI/EVC policy of type "ATM-Ethernet Interworking." Provisioning of ATM-Ethernet interworking is achieved by a single FlexUNI/EVC service request.

Bridge Domain Support for VPLS service requests

Bridge domain support has been added to VPLS service requests through a new attribute, Bridge Domain ID. The Bridge Domain ID attribute is only supported for the Cisco GSR 12406 running IOS 12.0(32)SY6 and functioning in an N-PE role. This attribute shows up in a service request only for this platform; otherwise, the attribute will be filtered from the Link Attributes window of the service request.

Access Ring Termination on Two Different NPEs

This release adds support for provisioning termination of access links against two different N-PEs. This is implemented by allowing an access ring to terminate on two different N-PEs. The N-PEs are connected by a logical link using loopback interfaces on the N-PEs. The redundant link starts from a U-PE device and may, optionally, include PE-AGG devices.

Selective Determination of Templates for U-PE and PE-AGG Devices

Support is added to selectively determine which U-PE and PE-AGG devices (for example, in a ring environment) to apply templates/data files. During template association in the service policy workflow, the U-PE and PE-AGG device roles have two options to associate templates/data files. A "Devices with UNI" option causes templates/data files to be configured on devices of the specified role with a UNI interface. An "All other devices" option causes templates/data files to be configured on all devices of the specified role, including those with a UNI interface.

Sample Configlets for ISC 6.0 Features

Configlet examples have been added for new features in this release.

Here is a short description of the IPv6 feature that is new to the MDE component.

Default Information Originate Under BGP for Per-Neighbor

A new attribute, Default Information Originate, is available in the BGP Routing Protocol Screen for Ipv4 and Ipv6 in both MPLS policy and service request workflows.

Default Information Originate Under OSPF for Per-Neighbor

A new attribute, Default Information Originate, is available in OSPF Routing Protocol Screen for Ipv4 in both MPLS policy and service request workflows.

Multicast Route Limit Per VRF

A new attribute, Multicast Route Limit, is available during VPN and VRF creation/modification. The value of this attribute is shared for both the IPv4 and IPv6 address families. This feature allows the setting of the route limit per VRF for both IOS and IOS XR platforms.

Support for IPv6 Services for IOS Devices

IPv6 services are extended to IOS devices in this release. Areas impacted include the service policy workflow, service request workflow, inventory (e.g., designating a device as 6VPE capable), IP addressing schemes, validity checks, and routing protocol provisioning. Information is provided for VRF upgrading on IOS 6VPE using MPLS service requests.

MPLS VPN Over IP Tunnels Support: Inter AS

InterAS support is extended to IOS XR in this release. This is a platform certification only. No new functionality is added.

Selective Determination of Templates for U-PE and PE-AGG Devices

Support is added to selectively determine which U-PE and PE-AGG devices (for example, in a ring environment) to apply templates/data files. During template association in the service policy workflow, the U-PE and PE-AGG device roles have two options to associate templates/data files. A "Devices with UNI" option causes templates/data files to be configured on devices of the specified role with a UNI interface. An "All other devices" option causes templates/data files to be configured on all devices of the specified role, including those with a UNI interface.

New Configlet Examples for ISC 6.0 Features

Important Notes

1. All ISC patches are available at: http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/isc.

2. The supported Sybase and Oracle databases behave differently. All GUI queries are case insensitive for Sybase and case sensitive for Oracle.

3. ISC does not work with pop-up blockers in a web browser. If you have pop-up blockers installed, disable them.

4. When using an external Oracle database, the embedded Sybase database is still automatically launched for SLA support.

5. For all APIs, the Service Request name is unique and therefore, each Create Service Request API call needs to maintain this uniqueness.
