Overview

The Cisco WAN Automation Engine (WAE) is a powerful, flexible, software-defined networking (SDN) platform. It abstracts and simplifies your WAN environment while making it fully open and programmable. WAE network-modeling technology enables real-time analysis of traffic needs and traffic placement in complex WAN topologies.

This is a sandbox intended for self-study, and it provides a variety of scenarios that interact with numerous components of WAE. You will interact with the WAE platform across a set of APIs and technologies, including Cisco Network Services Orchestrator (NSO), Segment Routing, MPLS, PCEP, and BGP-LS.

This environment uses Virtual Internet Routing Lab (VIRL). VIRL is a multi-purpose network virtualization platform that provides an easy way to build, configure, and test new or existing network topologies with an intuitive user interface (UI). For more information about WAE, refer to WAN Automation Engine on the Cisco DevNet web site. For more information about VIRL, refer to VIRL (Virtual Internet Routing Lab).
