Intelligent WAN (IWAN) - Enabling Business Class Internet
The Intelligent WAN, or IWAN, leverages the Internet to enhance traditional networks and improve cloud performance. This architecture session will explain how organizations can not only take advantage of low-cost, high-performance Internet services to reduce costs without compromising network reliability, but also to improve application performance. We will discuss the emerging industry trends and business drivers, as well as which Cisco products and technologies are used to build an IWAN. Each technology will be explained in detail to enable you to design your IWAN to take advantage of the price-performance benefits of the Internet. This architecture session takes a solution approach to building an Intelligent WAN and does not go into detail on how to configure an IWAN. Attendees should have a general understanding of Enterprise WAN designs, routers and related IOS WAN technologies.
