AI-Driven SD-WAN Demo: Path Selection Application Policies

Demo Drop AI & MLSD-WAN
A title slide that says, “AI-Driven SD-WAN Demo: Path Selection Application Policies.” In the background is a person using a desktop computer.

How to set application policies with hybrid WAN and internet-only architectures.

Juniper SD-WAN solutions let you easily provide path preferences based on applications being accessed. Watch this short video for how it works, including examples and traffic-steering-policy options. For more, join one of our live SD-WAN demos.

You’ll learn

  • What a representative configuration looks like, with WAN links, an internet breakout, and an MPLS path

  • About an access policy called Backhaul to manage traffic sent to the data center

  • How to configure internet-only architectures with an application order of preference

0:06 This demonstration will show how an administrator would set up application policies with hybrid

0:12 WAN and internet only architectures.

0:14 The Juniper SD-WAN solution allows administrators to easily provide path preferences based on

0:20 applications being accessed.

0:22 Currently, in our configuration, we have 3 WAN Links: an internet breakout, an Internet

0:27 path to our datacenter, and an MPLS path that we just put in that also goes to our data

0:33 center.

0:34 For the traffic we want to send to the data center, we have an access-policy called Backhaul

0:39 that determines who can send the traffic to the datacenter, and it also has a traffic-steering

0:44 policy to determine which paths to use.

0:48 Looking at the configuration of the traffic-steering policy, we can see that we can prefer one

0:53 path over the other based on order, a manually entered cost, or we can send the traffic as

0:59 equal cost multipath or ECMP.

1:03 The same thing works for Internet only architectures as well.

1:06 We just have to configure our internet interfaces, which we are calling WAN1 and WAN2 in this

1:11 case, and then set the order of preference in the

1:14 traffic-steering policy and apply that policy to any applications

1:18 that we want through the access policies.
