A few months ago, I developed some Python source code for API of Bandwidth on-demand application, and upload into github, if you’re interested, please feel free to download and run in with WAE.
I would like to give it a try but don't know how can I do so. Is there any option to emulate environment or is it required to have private physical lab for this?
Could you please let me know what could be minimal set up for Cisco WAE testing purposes or how did you tested this?
Hi Damian, is your question is about a network setup (the routers) or about a WAE server? If you need a small network setup, use something like CML (aka VIRL from Cisco), or something similar.
If your question is about WAE, I'm not sure I understand. You can setup WAE on a linux VM.
If I haven't answered the question, can you please elaborate?
Hi Peter - thank you for your prompt reply and help.
I would like to learn more about both topics - I've been searching for some more docs but haven't found any. If you have any resources I would be glad if you can share them with us.
I already tried APIC-EM on http://developer.cisco.com but I need to play with it bit more, because on first try I have only discovered how the environment works.
I found following videos "APIC Enterprise Module REST API Tutorial 1 - 3" very useful:
I have two more questions regarding WAE:
1. Is it possible to download WAE as VM, e.g. in .ova file format or just install it on some linux distro?
2. Which Cisco series/families/devices are capable to be orchestrated by WAE?
Thank you very much in advance.
I appreciate your time.
Hi Damian. Although WAE is released, it's being supported via Cisco SEs at specific customers. Best thing to do is reach out to your local Cisco SE at this point.
In answer to your second question, WAE supports standard protocols like OSFP, IS-IS, RSVP-TE, PCEP, BGP-LS and others. It can work in multi-vendor environments, and isn't so much device-specific as protocol-specific.
Thank you Peter. I will focus on data center automation topics then because our different service line (telecommunication) cares about WAN links and MPLS.
