Introduction

EDOS is a Cisco Cloud provisioning platform used for Zero Touch Provisioning. It automatically provisions the device out of the box and provides a “plug and play” user experience.

Behind the scenes

  1. Service Provider/Distributor creates a Profile before / during the order process to ensure all the MAC addresses get automatically mapped to the profile when order is shipped.
  2. Once customer receives the device and plugs into the network, device calls Cisco Cloud/RC EDOS server.
  3. Cisco Cloud looks up profile based on device’s MAC address, then provides profile to device.
  4. Device is redirected to the SP Provisioning Server.
  5. SP Provisioning Server provides configuration information to device

Sample EDOS Configuration Profile

<Resync_On_Reset>Yes</Resync_On_Reset>

<Resync_Periodic>7200</Resync_Periodic>
