APIC-EM Dual MPLS WAN

Hello,

I am trying to understand the dual MPLS options for WAN connectivity.

Here is something I am trying to do and I looked at the below links.

http://www.cisco.com/c/dam/en/us/td/docs/solutions/CVD/Aug2014/CVD-MPLSWANDesignGuide-AUG14.pdf

-Two DC (One primary and One secondary)

-Two MPLS links to remote sites (One Primary and One secondary).

- DC aggregation router (PE) and Remote site (CE) both managed by us.

- Multiple VRF to send different services to CE.

Is this possible in current IWAN? is there any link I can have a look.

Looks like I am stuck now...

I installed APIC-EM and not able to create the templates or configure the hub sites even. I did a discovery and found the devices though.

Can I use APIC-EM without Pfr? I have no issue with bandwidth. I just want to use APIC-EM as configuration provisioning and inventory tool. 

Any link or guideline will be great.

Re: APIC-EM Dual MPLS WAN

The Iwan video was great and looks really simple. Thank you for the link.

If I have only one PE or hub site router to start with and one PE/Hub site router in secondary Hub site can I do IWAN?

APIC-EM can discover two virtual devices (CSRv) (MC/BR) but I can't move ahead in Hub site configuration page. The message was popping up that I need 2 Border routers in each pop.

Can I have one router that will be my MC/BR and will be my aggregation router as well for the WAN links?

Any other links to understand this will be great. My main intention is to understand the feature sets in a virtual environment and decide.

Currently, you need one BR (Border Router) per WAN service at the HUB.

MTT (Multi Tunnel Termination) - the ability to have multiple WAN services terminated on a single HUB BR is coming soon.

Hi Adam,

I have one WAN (MPLS) service in the Hub and One WAN (MPLS) service in the backup Hub. Do I need a dedicated MC and BR? Or they can be the same device?

Re: APIC-EM Dual MPLS WAN

You can have co-located MC-BR. It should work w/o having external MC.

Re: APIC-EM Dual MPLS WAN

Thanks for your reply. But looks like you need at-least two BR in the HUB.
