Question 1

Explanation

+ Orchestration plane (vBond) assists in securely onboarding the SD-WAN WAN Edge routers into the SD-WAN overlay. The vBond controller, or orchestrator, authenticates and authorizes the SD-WAN components onto the network. The vBond orchestrator takes an added responsibility to distribute the list of vSmart and vManage controller information to the WAN Edge routers. vBond is the only device in SD-WAN that requires a public IP address as it is the first point of contact and authentication for all SD-WAN components to join the SD-WAN fabric. All other components need to know the vBond IP or DNS information.

Question 2

Explanation

+ Fabric edge node: This fabric device (for example, access or distribution layer device) connects wired endpoints to the SDA fabric.

Question 3

Explanation

+ Control plane (vSmart) builds and maintains the network topology and make decisions on the traffic flows. The vSmart controller disseminates control plane information between WAN Edge devices, implements control plane policies and distributes data plane policies to network devices for enforcement.

Question 4

Explanation

The BFD (Bidirectional Forwarding Detection) is a protocol that detects link failures as part of the Cisco SD-WAN (Viptela) high availability solution, is enabled by default on all vEdge routers, and you cannot disable it.

Question 5

Explanation

An overlay network creates a logical topology used to virtually connect devices that are built over an arbitrary physical underlay topology.

An overlay network is created on top of the underlay network through virtualization (virtual networks). The data plane traffic and control plane signaling are contained within each virtualized network, maintaining isolation among the networks and an independence from the underlay network.

SD-Access allows for the extension of Layer 2 and Layer 3 connectivity across the overlay through the services provided by through LISP.

Question 6

Explanation

Control plane (vSmart) builds and maintains the network topology and make decisions on the traffic flows. The vSmart controller disseminates control plane information between WAN Edge devices, implements control plane policies and distributes data plane policies to network devices for enforcement.

Question 7

Question 8

Explanation

Access Points
+ AP is directly connected to FE (or to an extended node switch)
+ AP is part of Fabric overlay

Question 9

Explanation

Fabric control plane node (C): One or more network elements that implement the LISP Map-Server (MS) and Map-Resolver (MR) functionality. The control plane node’s host tracking database keep track of all endpoints in a fabric site and associates the endpoints to fabric nodes in what is known as an EID-to-RLOC binding in LISP.

Question 10

Explanation

SD-Access Wireless Architecture Control Plane Node –A Closer Look

Fabric Control-Plane Node is based on a LISP Map Server / Resolver

Runs the LISP Endpoint ID Database to provide overlay reachability information
+ A simple Host Database, that tracks Endpoint ID to Edge Node bindings (RLOCs)
+ Host Database supports multiple types of Endpoint ID (EID), such as IPv4 /32, IPv6 /128* or MAC/48
+ Receives prefix registrations from Edge Nodes for wired clients, and from Fabric mode WLCs for wireless clients
+ Resolves lookup requests from FE to locate Endpoints
+ Updates Fabric Edge nodes, Border nodes with wireless client mobility and RLOC information
