BRKRST-2045 - L3 VPN over IP Transport, Design and Solutions in the WAN (2015 Melbourne)The desire for segmentation in the network is increasing at a rapid pace. Network segmentation over the WAN using L3 Virtual Route Forwarding (VRF) instances maximises network hardware, by separating organisations logically, on the same physical hardware, greatly reducing cost and operational complexity. Multi-tenant compute environments in the Data Center Management, traffic separation for security purposes and/or internal organisational separation are some of the key drivers for extending logical network separation over the campus and the WAN. This session will address WAN virtualisation from a network view at Layer 3. We will focus on basic concepts, available IP and Ethernet transport options available from service providers, challenges when implementing IP network virtualisation over the LAN, and recent WAN virtualisation innovations for branch aggregation that will simplify these deployments.This session will quickly review the various VRF-lite options over Ethernet and IP transport options. In-depth topics include extending various VRF solutions and MPLS BGP VPNs over IP transport, leveraging GRE, multipoint GRE, over the various IP transport options offered by service providers.
Technologies discussed include MPLS over IP innovations leveraging multi-point GRE tunnels, QoS recommendations over sub-rate services in MPLS over IP deployments, MTU challenges, QoS deployment models in a virtualised LAN/WAN, as well as options for large-scale Layer 3 MPLS VPN services over GRE/IPSec.

BRKACI-2006 - Integration of Hypervisors and L4-7 Services into an ACI Fabric (2015 Melbourne)This session provides a technical introduction to how the ACI fabric handles single and multi-hypervisor environments, how the ACI controller provides integration into different VMMs for a single point of management for virtual network management as well as how the fabric integrates and automates both virtual and physical L4-L7 services.
Today's modern Data Center Managements are seeing an increased interest in adopting a multi-hypervisor strategy however management of these multiple virtual environments has largely been achieved through disparate tools, requiring manual co-ordination to physical infrastructure and/or intensive programmatic tooling. The Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) is adopting an innovative approach to addressing these challenges, through normalisation of different hypervisor encapsulations together with tight integration of the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) of choice, providing a single point of management for both physical and virtual network infrastructure. Additionally the ACI Fabric is taking an improved approach to integrating L4 -L7 services. By providing both NFV service insertion based on fabric policy as well as creating an open ecosystem automation framework the configuration and use of multi-vendor physical and virtual services within the ACI is greatly simplified.
This session provides a technical introduction to ACI's support for multi-vendor services (F5, Citrix, Cisco, …) and hypervisors (ESX/DVS, HyperV, KVM/OVS). This session assumes the attendees have a basic understanding of Virtual Machine, L4-L7 services and networking environments.

BRKSPG-2000 - Getting the most out of your IOS-XE router before and after deployment (2015 San Diego)Routers have evolved from CPU-based systems to specialized architectures, deploying multi-core technologies on linux based kernels, to scale for today's networks. More features are deployed in SP networks to enable and operate new services (e.g. NAT, DPI). Both trends increase the deployment complexity. This session focuses on understanding the performance of today's router architectures, either to evaluate them for a particular deployment, or for the operational understanding. Typically, router performance is a function of the hardware and software architecture and the feature set in-use in a particular deployment. We provide an overview of commonly used centralized and distributed router architectures and discuss their pros and cons. The system performance of features (e.g. utilization) during a steady state and during network events (e.g. link flaps) is examined. We also discuss case studies of operational do's and don'ts that have contributed to operational impacts.
BRKSEC-2135 - The Importance of Threat-Centric Security (2015 San Diego)Today’s sophisticated attacks have grown in frequency, severity and complexity. Evolving technologies are paving the way for new attack techniques we couldn’t have anticipated a few years ago. To truly protect against all possible attack vectors, IT professionals must accept the nature of modern networked environments and devices and start thinking like an attacker. Crucial to accomplishing this is first understanding the modern threat landscape and how a threat-centric approach can increase the effectiveness of threat prevention. This session will offer a detailed review of today’s dynamic threats and an overview of how open source technologies such as Snort and ClamAV play a role in enabling effective, coordinated protection for enterprise environments. Enterprise security administrators and architects, CISOs and even CIOs will learn about threat-centric security approaches that protect their environments across the attack continuum - before, during and after an attack.

BRKNMS-2518 - Secrets to Achieving High Availability (2015 San Diego)Many Cisco Advanced Services customers operate with this level of availability or higher. What separates these companies from the companies that have ongoing stability and business disruption due to network instability? The answer is that these companies have a well defined, full lifecycle approach that is is fine tuned to the needs of their business and they follow it! Many other customers manage their network 'reactively' by responding to problems as they arise. This is expensive and also sets the stage for large network failure events as the 'fixes' fail to take a holistic view of the network. Most large network outages are found to be a culmination of many small problems accumulated over time. This session will provides the strategies and methodologies utilized by Cisco Advanced Services and developed from over a decade of experience delivering Optimization Services to our customers. The strategies revolve around Design, Hardware, Software, Change Management and Network Management to address the full lifecycle of a technology from introduction to removal from the network. Where other sessions will focus on the design of a highly available and resilient network, this session focuses on what must happen after this design is created. Of course, understanding this will also influence the design process.
