Offer customized transport to every application
Increased application diversity with specific transport requirements
Traditional routing protocols are blind to applications and hence treat them the same way
Path to launch:
Customize the way your network transports applications based on their needs. Every network element is assigned different kinds of Segment Routing Identifiers (SIDs)
A prefix SID, which identifies the shortest-path to that network node, or
An adjacency SID, which identifies a local link to another network node
Using SIDs for Segment Routing is like building with an endless combination of blocks
To create a network path, simply define an ordered list of SIDs
Combine Segment Routing with a network controller and the possibilities are endless.
If your application is sensitive to latency (e.g., remote surgery) create a low latency network path.
If your application is mission-critical (e.g., financial transactions) create secure network paths that avoid unsecure network areas.
If your application needs high-availability (e.g., a video cloud service) create disjoint network paths.
