SDA Access – Network Analytics

Network Data Platform – Analytics Engine and Assurance Engine.

Analytics is the action of taking data and storing it in a format that can be exploited by the Assurance Engine to get value from the information.

The Analytics Engine collects data from a variety of sources such as SNMP, Syslog, Netflow and Streaming Telemetry. Data can also be sent in from ISE, DHCP, DNS, AD etc.

All the information is stored in a database which can be accessed via API.

Network Assurance.

Troubleshooting tends to be slow and reactive owing to a lack of visibility.

SD Assurance proactively monitors the network – looks for problems development and resource utilisation.

Increased visibility across all mediums with health scores – WAN/LAN/Wireless

Device 360 – view of everything that the device is doing.

Assurance gives suggestions with problems and the automation engine will deploy the suggested configuration.

Path Trace – a diagnostic utility that shows indepth where problems exist in the traffic path.

Assurance can help with:

  • Network connectivity
  • Connectivity between SDA nodes
  • Node health
  • Network services such as DHCP, DNS, AAA
  • Wireless problems – association/auth failures, excessive onboarding time, roaming problems, coverage holes, capacity issues.
