Explore the rise of SD-WAN with CISCO and transform your existing WAN into an agile, efficient, and cost-effective network. Learning SD-WAN with Cisco helps you understand the development of SD-WAN and its benefits to modern networks. This book starts with an exploration of the different components of SD-WAN, such as vBond for orchestration, vManage for management, vSmart for control, and the vEdge devices. From there, it moves on to building a network from the ground up using EVE-NG, focusing on how to install EVE-NG, get the required licenses via a SmartNET account, download the components, and begin to create your network by installing vManage. Once you have this foundation, you will create the organization and certificates, and look at local users as well as single- and multi-tenancy options and clustering. As you continue to build your network, you will dig down into the overlay protocols used in SD-WAN, and then deploy your controllers and edge devices, looking at zero-touch provisioning along the way. After building your network, you will configure and apply policies and templates to manage the control and data planes as well as VPNs, Internet access, security, and quality of service. The book also explores reporting and management using vManage, along with upgrading and troubleshooting the various components, using techniques from simple ping and trace route through to advanced techniques such as DTLS and TLOC troubleshooting and traffic simulation. After reading this book, you will have hands-on experience working with SD-WAN. You will understand how to deploy, configure, manage, and troubleshoot it. What You Will Learn Know what SD-WAN is, how it came about, and why we need it Understand troubleshooting and traffic simulation of DTLS and TLOC Monitor, report, and troubleshoot the SD-WAN environment Who This Book Is For Network professionals with experience in Linux and Cisco devices

It aims to accelerate the adoption of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and create a solid foundation for Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). SDN is a vast subject; many network engineers find it difficult to get started with using and operating different SDN platforms. This book will give you a practical bridge from SDN theory to the practical, real-world use of SDN in datacenters and by cloud providers. The book will help you understand the features and use cases for SDN, NFV, and OpenDaylight. NFV uses virtualization concepts and techniques to create virtual classes for node functions. Used together, SDN and NFV can elevate the standards of your network architecture; generic hardware-saving costs and the advanced and abstracted software will give you the freedom to evolve your network in the future without having to invest more in costly equipment. By the end of this book, you will have learned how to design and deploy OpenDaylight networks and integrate them with physical network switches.

Design Innovation and Network Architecture for the Future Internet

Publisher : IGI Global
Release : 2021-04-16
More Info
For the past couple of years, network automation techniques that include software-defined networking (SDN) and dynamic resource allocation schemes have been the subject of a significant research and development effort. Likewise, network functions virtualization (NFV) and the foreseeable usage of a set of artificial intelligence techniques to facilitate the processing of customers’ requirements and the subsequent design, delivery, and operation of the corresponding services are very likely to dramatically distort the conception and the management of networking infrastructures. Some of these techniques are being specified within standards developing organizations while others remain perceived as a “buzz” without any concrete deployment plans disclosed by service providers. An in-depth understanding and analysis of these approaches should be conducted to help internet players in making appropriate design choices that would meet their requirements as well as their customers. This is an important area of research as these new developments and approaches will inevitably reshape the internet and the future of technology. Design Innovation and Network Architecture for the Future Internet sheds light on the foreseeable yet dramatic evolution of internet design principles and offers a comprehensive overview on the recent advances in networking techniques that are likely to shape the future internet. The chapters provide a rigorous in-depth analysis of the promises, pitfalls, and other challenges raised by these initiatives, while avoiding any speculation on their expected outcomes and technical benefits. This book covers essential topics such as content delivery networks, network functions virtualization, security, cloud computing, automation, and more. This book will be useful for network engineers, software designers, computer networking professionals, practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students looking for a comprehensive research book on the latest advancements in internet design principles and networking techniques.
