Cisco Connect 18• Service state is stored in a ‘Service Request’ (SR)• A history of all changes is kept (Including after decommissioning)• The SR can be edited, then deployment can be scheduled at a later time• The SR can be canceled so that resources are releasedstart endDeployed DeletedCreate Deploy Decommission PurgeModifyCancelRequestedService Request Lifecycle
  19. 19. © 2012 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. Cisco Connect 19• Service Provisioning is controlled via ’ServiceProfiles’ and ‘Service Requests’• Deployment Process:• Read configuration from device• Compare with intent• Generate configuration differences• Apply configuration• Read configuration from device• Audit configuration• Report• Scheduled Audits can be used to detectunexpected configuration deviationsTask Scheduler DatabasehttpdRepositoryWorkerRepositoryGTL / DCSProvisioningJDBCConnectionsJDBCConnectionsJDBCConnectionsTelnet / SSHConnectionsJava RMIConnectionsJava RMIConnectionsTIBCOEventBusJSP Actions RepositorySchedulerServiceRequestProvisioningJobService Requestprocessed andnew ConfiggeneratedConfig sent todevice and thenauditedProvisioning Under the Hood

  23. 23. In-Depth Visibility into Transport Layer• Realistic view of the device tofacilitate NOC and technicianinteraction• DWDM/TDM topology andmultilayer link management• Node provisioning and facilitiesconfiguration using NetworkElement ExplorerLogical and PhysicalInventoryTransport Maps
  24. 24. In-Depth Visibility into Packet Transport Network• Discovery of physical topology among devices• Topological views that identify the location and severity of alarms• Common launch point for the majority of element management operations• Up-to-date display of network event, state, and configuration changes
  25. 25. Service Visualization• Enables visualization of the services configured on the network• Ability to visualize services such as cross-connects, ethernet services, MPLS-TPtunnels, pseudowires, VLAN’s, VPLS, MPLS VPN’s• Overlays allow viewing which devices and links are part of a specific service (VPN,Pseudowire, VLAN, MPLS-TP, clocking … etc)VPN ServicePseudowireOverlay
  26. 26. In-Depth VisibilityExample: RAN Backhaul Network• Full visibility into SAToP,CESoPSN, and ATM configurationson cell site and aggregation routers• Enables operator to view virtualconnections for cellular trafficacross a packet network• Clocking:• ITU-T Synchronous Ethernet (SynchE)• IEEE 1588-2008• Adaptive Clock Recovery (ACR)SyncE ClockingT1/E1 Circuit Emulation Properties
  27. 27. Path Tracer• Path Tracer enables end-to-end route tracing to be performed with information displayedsimultaneously for the multiple networking layersUses network model to trace route and display traffic stats per hop, across technologies and layersDevices in the route path are queried at a greater frequency to provide near real-time statistics• Includes all properties at Layer 1, 2 and 3, plus alarm information, counters, and more• View multiple paths between the source and destination
  28. 28. Alarms and Topology• NOC operator activities are triggered byalarms or fault notifications• Alarm indications available in variousviewsAlarm Dashboard & AlarmBrowserTopology View withAlarm IndicationAlarmed Link

  30. 30. Alarm ManagementPrime Central• Collects alarms from underlyingDomain Managers• Cross Domain Event Management• Aggregation, Correlation and De-duplication rule-based• Portlet with Customized Views andFilters• Full Alarm Lifecycle Support• Seamless X-Launch of SourceDomain Manager
  31. 31. Alarm ManagementPrime Network• Through Prime Network’s modeling of the topological relationship between networkelements, it is possible to reduce the alarms and help the user to identify the root cause• This modeling enables: Local event reduction: regular-expression filters (dropping), suppression of flapping events, etc. Grouping of related events (same cause) into alarms Alarm correlation, to identify causalityLocal correlation: alarms emitted within a single NETopology-based correlation: alarms from multiple NEs
  32. 32. Alarm ManagementPrime Performance Manager• Prime Performance Manager provides ability to define thresholds on Key PerformanceIndicators (KPI’s)• When a KPI is crossed, an alert can be raised• Threshold Customizations Available: Applicable to single device or group of devices Testing Interval Scheduling – date/time range Alarm Severity Onset and Abate Occurences
  33. 33. Performance Monitoring Network congestion monitoringClass-based QoS, TE tunnels Network resource monitoringDevice and interface utilization and availability Network service monitoringPseudowire, EVC and EVC QoS, IP SLA,Ethernet OAM, MPLS segments, LDP, Inline video monitoringSupport for multiple technologiesPer NPUPerClassPoliciesPerClassPoliciesPortpolicySharedGroupPolicyEFPPolicyEFPPolicyPre-Aggregation NodeASR-903, ME-3800X, 3600XCore NetworkMobile Access Network Aggregation NetworkCore NodeCRS-3, ASR-9000IP/MPLS TransportIP/MPLS TransportCore NodeCRS-3, ASR-9000Cell Site Gateway (CSG)ASR-901IP/MPLS TransportMobile TransportGateway (MTG) ASR-9000Aggregation NodeASR-9000
