Introduction

Traditional WAN infrastructure was good at a time when the majority of branch office traffic flowed within the enterprise intranet boundary. However, new cloud services and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications are changing the traffic pattern. Today, the majority of enterprise traffic flows to public clouds and the Internet. This change creates new requirements for security, application performance, cloud connectivity, management, and operations.

Cisco’s intent-based WAN offers an entirely new approach to manage and operate your WAN infrastructure. It provides the following key benefits:

      Makes your network ready for SaaS applications

      Simplifies your WAN architecture and makes it easier to manage, operate, and consume

      Balances security and application experience with direct Internet access at the branch

Benefits of a software subscription for SD-WAN and Routing

      The latest innovations through simple subscription tiers

      Available across the portfolio

      Flexibility to choose on-premises or cloud management

      Easy license portability across premises and cloud

      Easy upgrade across tiers

      Software Support Service (SWSS) included

You can begin this intent-based WAN journey with the new SD-WAN and Routing subscription offers (Figure 1).

With the new SD-WAN and Routing subscription tiers, you get the flexibility to consume the latest technology, either in the cloud or on your premises, across the entire routing stack. All are available as 3- or 5-year subscriptions. Cisco DNA Advantage for SD-WAN and Routing is also available as a 7-year subscription. Choosing the subscription is a simple 5-step process (Figure 2).

Cisco smart license and smart accounts

Enterprise SD-WAN and Routing software now uses smart licensing. To retrieve your license, you will first need to set up a smart account on Cisco software central (software.cisco.com). Once it is set up, you’ll generate a token to activate the license. With smart accounts you get:

      Real-time visibility into all of your Cisco software licenses, entitlements, and users across your organization

      Centralized management to view all license entitlements and move licenses freely through the network as needed

      The ability to organize your licenses by department, product, geography, or other designation with virtual accounts

Cisco Software Support

With Cisco DNA software licenses, customers receive embedded SWSS – which covers 24x7x365 Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support, software release updates, advanced support analytics, and designated service management. This is valid only for the Cisco DNA software subscription stacks (Cisco DNA Essentials, Advantage, and Premier).

For full hardware support, including the network stack (Network Essentials/Advantage), customers will require Smart Net Total Care for 24x7x365 Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support, proactive security and product alerts, and product lifecycle management. An additional option for hardware support is Solution Support for your multivendor Cisco solution environment.
