These release notes provide a summary of the components in Cisco Intelligent Wide Area Network Application (Cisco IWAN App) Release 1.2.0.
This release notes contain the following sections:
■Supported Cisco Platforms and Software Releases
Cisco IWAN App (or the Cisco IWAN on APIC-EM) extends Software Defined Networking to the branch with an application-centric approach based on business policy and application rules. This provides IT centralized management with distributed enforcement across the network.
Cisco IWAN App automates and orchestrates Cisco IWAN deployments with an intuitive browser-based GUI. A new router can be provisioned in a matter of minutes without any knowledge of the Command Line Interface (CLI). Business priorities are translated into network policies based on Cisco best practices and validated designs. Cisco IWAN App dramatically reduces the time required for configuring advanced network services through the use of automation and simple, predefined workflows.
Cisco IWAN App offers a turnkey solution that allows IT to get out of the weeds of managing low-level semantics like VPN, QoS, optimization, ACL policies. Instead, IT can focus on the bigger picture, such as, aligning network resources with business priorities and delivering outstanding user experience that result in better business outcomes.
Cisco IWAN App includes the following features:
■Zero touch provisioning—Plug and play for remote devices without user intervention
■Simple workflows—Use case driven with step-by-step and site-to-site provisioning
■Business level policies—Rules drive network actions, abstraction of underlying policy configuration
The following new features and functions are available in Cisco IWAN App Release 1.2.0:
■Support for Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2 (ISR-G2) Series Routers (8xx, 39xx, 29xx,19xx) and Cisco 4000 Series Integrated Services Routers
■After you have provisioned the site (day N), you can:
–Add or delete WAN clouds and service providers in any order
–Connect hub devices to different service providers
■Improved usability by allowing you to select the LAN interface
Cisco IWAN supports the following Cisco router platforms and software releases.
When enabling the beta version of EasyQoS and Cisco IWAN App Release 1.1 on APIC-EM, you must adhere to the following:
■The network segments for each solution are disjoint. A device controlled by the IWAN solution cannot simultaneously be controlled by the EasyQoS solution. Application are of global scope across APIC-EM and as such, custom applications created in EasyQoS application may show up in the IWAN solution if applicable to the WAN solution.
■You must complete the following tasks on devices claimed by EasyQoS, to bring them in the IWAN workflow:
–QoS policy tags should be removed prior to being claimed
–The device must be cleaned of remaining EasyQoS policy or configuration and the device must brought to greenfield state.
