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).
