Performance Routing (PfR) delivers intelligent path control for application-aware routing across the WAN. PfR provides:
PfRv3 monitors application performance on a per-flow basis, and applies what is learned to select the best path for that application. Using smart-probe intelligence, flows are monitored passively; probes are sent only when specifically needed to further enhance efficiency. PfRv3 effectively load-balances across paths while delivering the best application-level SLA.
PfRv3 represents the third generation of enhancements to Cisco’s intelligent path control capabilities. It features simple, centralized configuration; improved application monitoring; higher scale; and faster convergence.
PfRv3 innovations include the introduction of enterprise domains, a capability for service orchestration in the network that enables centralized configuration, automatic discovery, and single-touch provisioning. Simply define the domain, configure the hub site, and PfRv3 does the rest.
PfR is the technology for intelligent path control for Cisco Intelligent WAN, which builds upon four components:
