2 An Introduction to Avaya Fabric Alex Williams Network Specialist – Western Region

3 © 2012 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. 33 The simple truthThe simple truth Networks are largely managed and operated as they were over ten or more years ago Brute force, CLI, scripts, spreadsheets and chasing spanning tree or OSPF gremlins is more often than not, the norm. …why?

4 © 2012 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. 44 “IT budgeting is both art and science, combining financial management expertise and executive judgment” Gartner, 2012

5 © 2012 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. 55 But the nagging question is why…. Why are we still doing moves, adds & changes manually? Why do we “live with” unstable networks causing application downtime? Why do we build “overlay” network for critical applications? Why, when OPEX = 80% budget, do we settle for complexity? Why, when labor is the largest line-item expense, do we make it so labor-intensive to plan, configure & maintain a network? And why hasn’t anyone done something about this? Where’s the ‘Executive Judgment’ side of IT budgeting?

7 © 2012 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. 7 The Bold Truth We wait…  Minutes for network re- convergence  Hours for troubleshooting  Weeks for maintenance windows  Months to roll out significant applications

8 © 2012 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. 8 1.Add HD video surveillance and multicast sites in minutes 2.Deploy services on the fly 3.Create unlimited separated services with minimal effort What if you could… 4.Deliver unified access solutions at the edge 5.Enable Guest, BYOD Access control all at once 6.Increase and monitor real-time Network quality 7.Enable data center continuity within clicks 8.Reduce latency and time to service in the data center 9.Deliver collaboration applications in a stack

All rights reserved. 9 Service Physically Managed Control Plane Autonomic Control Plane Virtualize devices into one network entity Services are provisioned to physical devices Services are provisioned to a single virtual network Business Speed Requires Agile Network Control Key Network Advantages  Network-wide VLAN tagging or multiple routing instances  Need for sequentially dependent legacy protocols  Network loops  Edge-only provisioning  All links active/optimized  Multicast scale/performance  Easy and unlimited network segmention The following become autonomic:  Configuration of the core  Network segmentation  Optimized recovery  Multicast routing  Virtual machine connectivity  Load balancing of flows IP Packets

10 © 2012 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. 10 Network “Constructs” Stacked Protocols Instability Ethernet has been built upon “one floor at a time” Adding on when needed Protocols run independently & are provisioned and managed separately. This can cause flapping and instability. Stability N u m be r o f c on t ro l p l ane s Rome wasn’t built in a day … neither was the “network” Multiple protocols to support: Loop prevention, L2 & L3 forwarding, management, virtualization & multicast

11 © 2012 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. 11 Fabric Attach – How does it work? Baseline Setup  Fabric (SPB cloud) is preconfigured with services  FA Client and FA Server need not have ISIDs, VLANs, port membership, uplink/trunk ports and tagging, etc., configured  FA Client need not have IP and mgmt VLAN configured (i.e., vanilla switch “out of the box”) Zero Touch Provisioning  FA Client auto attaches to the FA Server to obtain mgmt VLAN and IP config  End points and client connections trigger auto configuration of ISIDs, VLANs, port membership, etc., on FA Client and FA Server  End points and clients are automatically attached to authorized services Fabric Attach builds on top of the Fabric Connect architecture Identity Engines is the centralized policy decision point for BYOD management and NAC Fabric Attach is fully integrated into the overall Avaya Networking solution
