NETWORKING NOTES FOR MYSELF, SOMEONE WHO IS EASILY DISTRACTED.
Data Plane – vEdge/cEdge
Available as hardware, software and cloud functions.Sit at geographically disparate locations.Push data across WAN.Function as normal routers and SD-WAN Overlay routers.ie. OMP, Localized and Centralized policies. Each router sets up DTLS tunnel to each vEdge in the SDWAN Fabric.Forms OMP adjacencies over DTLS tunnels to vSmarts for routing information.Sets up standard IPSEC tunnels to other…
Control Plane – vSmart/OMP
vSmart ControllerControl plane/brains of the solution.Managed via the CLI or (most likely and recommended) by vManage.Post router authentication, there is permanent DTLS tunnel between each vManage and each vEdge/cEdge.DTLS tunnels are used to create OMP neighborship between each router.vSmart controller uses OMP to determine topology and calculate best routes to different destinations across SD-WAN fabric.…
