LiveAction has completed compatibility testing with Cisco APIC-EM to increase the speed and quality of SD-WAN deployments.

LiveNX, Live Action’s network performance analytics platform that provides situational awareness, semantic-based analysis and modeling for continuous network insights, troubleshooting and service assurance, is now fully integrated with the Cisco APIC-EM using open APIs.

The integration enables users to visualize the Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) solution from the LiveNX dashboard, allowing the easy provisioning of a new site, adding devices for monitoring, validating deployment, and efficiently managing on-going network operations.

For example, as more users own more devices, it adds complexity to the network. For a long time, the fix was multiple device on-boarding. Yet this can create more challenges, including masking potential issues along with the associated time and costs for connecting devices and ensuring they comply with network policies. Using APIC-EM for orchestration and LiveNX for monitoring, customers simplify new device on-boarding. With this integration, adding a new site in APIC-EM automatically populates the site in LiveNX, mitigating the risk of human error and efficiently managing network operations.

“The LiveNX platform is a one-stop solution for network performance visibility and control,” said Walter Scott, CEO of Live Action. “Our integration with APIC demonstrates our continued commitment to deliver a scalable, next generation networking platform, including enabling planning, deploying and operating SD-WANs.”
