BRKEWN-2032 - DNA Assurance: bring intelligence to your WLAN issues (2017 Las Vegas)You do not have time to deal with network issues anymore. In the past you would design RF coverage, build the WLANs, hope for the best, and react to alarms and user complaints. This logic would force you to constantly react to fire drills, running every day to assess issues as they were reported to you. What if you could benefit from tools that would anticipate these issues, instead of simply reporting once they occurred? The logic of the DNA architecture is not only to provide an abstraction for automation and policies, but also provide a virtuous feedback loop, allowing you to visualize the consequences of your configurations. Intelligent analytics allows you to observe trends, work on what-if scenarios, and be warned about issues before they actually explode and collapse your network. In this session, you will get a deep dive exposure to the new DNA Center Assurance tool, to monitor trends in your network, anticipate issues, get intelligent (human readable), meaningful and synthetic messages on the state of your network, your clients and their applications, and easily troubleshoot issues once you identify an unsafe trend.
BRKDCN-3120 - ASR1000 OTV : Encryption & Redundancy Deployment (2017 Las Vegas)The session will focus on two different modes of deployment of OTV(Overlay Transport Virtualization)
OTV With Encryption is a Single Box Deployment Mode for the customers requiring DCI encryption.
We can choose to deploy an ASR1K at the edge of the network which will be able to provide OTV Transport
as well as encryption via IPSEC or GET VPN. This Single Box solution with an ASR1K will remove all
added complexity and both the services can be achieved via one single Edge device.
OTV(Overlay Transport Virtualisation) in simpler terms we can say that the VLAN’s will be extended
towards the other datacenter’s via the Overlay Tunnel. What if the underlying transport goes Down???
Redundant Mode Deployment will give an edge to the customers that even if the underlying transport on
the primary circuit goes down this deployment will ensure that the DC’s are still able to extend the
VLAN’s via a redundant path. With this mode we are making the OTV deployment more robust and resilient

PSOCRS-2444 - Cisco campus access switching architectures (2014 Milan)
In less than one year, architectural options have been made available to customers for campus switching designs. While traditional access, requiring individual management of devices, stacks or clusters keeps offering a flexible and highly robust and manageable solution for any deployment, other solutions have been designed to meet operation simplicity and mobility requirements.
The first alternative to traditional access is to shift to a cloud managed access network with Cisco Meraki devices. With these Cisco Meraki switches and access points one can simply plug them in any network and manage them throuhg a web portal available on the Internet. Another path to simplicty is to opt for Instant Access solution introduced on catalyst 6500/6800, in which the access switches (or stacks of switches) are seen as line cards of the distribution devices and do not need to be managed anymore as separate pieces of equipment. The third option is Converged Access, driven this time by the drastic increase of mobility and the 802.11ac new standard offering now Gigabit wireless access. Converged access architecture consists in distributing the wifi traffic processing (ie. CAPWAP termination) directly on access switches. This session will introduce the 4 aforementionned campus switching architectures: Cloud managed, Traditional Access, Instant Access and Converged Access with impacts on the choice of switching platforms. Positionning will be presented through concrete examples and case studies, and combination options of these solutions will also be discussed during the session.
This session will offer another way to consider Cisco switching portfolio in addition to the usual platforms design, scale, performance and supported features.
