Image of the host in the upper left corner, with a slide showing a network diagram demonstrating Zoom Failover Demo with Bandwidth Savings Report. From left to right, the diagram text says, “ZOOM Meeting Participant. SSR Branch. Access Zoom client. Modify WAN-MPLS Quality.” Center text says, “Backup Internet. Primary WAN-MPLS. View Analytics. SSR HQ. Zoom Service SLA. Latency < 100ms. Jitter < 50 ms. Packet Loss <5%.” Right-side text, “Zoom Meeting Host.”

Don’t let a Zoom failover impact your users’ experiences

Check out this demo for an overview of a Zoom Failover and how to read a Bandwidth Savings Report using the Session Smart Router (SSR). See firsthand how the bandwidth savings can add up for your business.

You’ll learn

  • How the SSR maintains a user experience during latency (that’s it’s #1 job) 

  • How the SSR provides visibility and analytics at the bits and bytes level (that’s it’s #2 job) 

  • How you can save upwards of 30–50% on bandwidth using secure vector routing

00:00 this is the zoom failover demo for this

00:02 setup we have a

00:05 data center router the head end which is

00:08 boston in my config

00:10 and we have a branch

00:12 which is kansas city in my config

00:15 and there is a primary wand path and a

00:17 backup internet path

00:19 between the branch

00:21 and headquarters data center router

00:24 for this demo

00:25 i'll be hosting a zoom meeting in the

00:27 zoom cloud

00:29 and i'll be remote desktopping into a

00:31 windows 10 machine in a branch

00:34 and i will join that zoom meeting

00:37 and what i'll demonstrate here is the

00:39 ability for the ssr

00:41 to be able to

00:43 maintain that user experience for that

00:45 zoom video meeting and that user

00:48 so

00:49 when

00:50 i exceed specific slas on this primary

00:53 wamp path

00:54 it will safely fail over that session

00:56 across the of internet path

00:58 and so the slas that are configured for

01:01 this demo is right here

01:03 so

01:04 as long as latency is less than 100

01:06 milliseconds

01:08 and jitters less than 50 milliseconds

01:10 and packet loss is less than 5

01:13 you're in a sunny day condition so

01:14 maintain that session and that service

01:16 across the primary land path

01:18 the moment there's an outage or any of

01:20 these slas are exceeded or not met

01:23 then safely fail over that session over

01:25 to the backup internet path

01:27 and what's going to be demonstrated here

01:28 is one

01:31 we're not going to

01:32 impair the user experience when this is

01:34 all happening

01:35 number two

01:36 we're going to provide the analytics of

01:38 what's happening at the network bits and

01:40 bytes level

01:41 and number three

01:43 when

01:44 there's

01:45 problems and issues at the network bits

01:47 and bytes level

01:48 we are not going to impact the user

01:49 experience so let's get started so i'm

01:52 going to log in into the windows 10

01:54 machine

01:55 and attend that zoom meeting which is

01:57 going on right now

02:00 so i'm going to put in the meeting id

02:11 it's going to ask me for the passcode

02:21 it should let me in automatically

02:24 and there i am

02:26 and so as you can see

02:29 the quality the video is very good

02:35 so i'm going to go into the juniper

02:38 ssr conductor

02:40 to take a look at what's happening at

02:42 the network bits and bytes level

02:50 and so i have a chart here that shows

02:52 the bandwidth between

02:54 the branch which is kansas city

02:57 and the data center which is boston

03:00 so if you look here we have some

03:01 bandwidth

03:02 across the blue line which is designated

03:05 the primary wand path

03:07 and there is barely any bandwidth across

03:10 the backup internet path um so the blue

03:12 line is the primary one path bandwidth

03:15 and the red line is the backup internet

03:17 path

03:18 in a sunny day condition

03:21 this is going to happen because

03:23 the

03:25 primary path is the one path

03:27 the only way the backup internet path is

03:30 going to have any bandwidth if there is

03:31 an outage on a primary land path or

03:33 those slas are not met

03:35 i have a second chart which measures

03:37 latency between

03:39 the kansas city branch router

03:41 and the boston data center headquarters

03:44 router

03:45 and as you can see there's two lines

03:47 so the blue line denotes the latency

03:49 between the branch and data center which

03:51 is 30 milliseconds

03:53 and a red line denotes the latency

03:54 between

03:56 the

03:57 branch and data center router so they're

04:00 both under 100 milliseconds so we're

04:01 within sla

04:04 so now for this demo um i have the

04:06 ability to go into the primary land path

04:08 and insert some impairments so

04:10 specifically

04:12 i'm going to impair

04:14 the latency across the primary land path

04:17 by adding more than 100 milliseconds so

04:19 it exceeds the sla

04:22 so i'm going to insert 55 milliseconds

04:25 latency from the branch to data center

04:28 and from the data center to branch which

04:29 gives you 55 plus 55 plus what's there

04:32 which exceeds the sla

04:34 so job number one of the ssr is to

04:36 maintain a user experience which is the

04:39 zoom video shown in this windows 10

04:42 window

04:43 job number two of the ssr is to provide

04:46 the visibility and analytics to what's

04:48 happening at the network's network bits

04:50 and bytes level

04:51 which is this window here

04:53 and job number three is no matter what's

04:55 happening at network bits and bytes

04:56 level you never ever

04:59 impact the user experience job number

05:01 one

05:02 so as you can see here

05:04 if we take a look at the latency chart

05:07 it shows that the blue line which is the

05:09 latency across the primary one path has

05:12 gone over 100 milliseconds which exceeds

05:14 the sla

05:16 and the red line which is the latency

05:18 across the

05:19 primary the backup internet is still at

05:22 24 milliseconds now

05:24 at the time of this spike in latency

05:28 the bandwidth across the primary land

05:30 path which is the blue line went to zero

05:33 but

05:34 the bandwidth across the red line which

05:36 is the backup internet path took over

05:39 so while this was all happening

05:41 the user experience from the perspective

05:43 of the user on the windows 10 machine

05:46 that's watching this zoom video was

05:48 never impacted

05:50 there was no session

05:52 connection loss

05:54 there was no resetting of the connection

05:56 the user experience was maintained

06:00 with secure vector routing it is a

06:02 tunnel tunnel free technology which

06:04 saves on bandwidth and depending on your

06:07 services and applications and the size

06:08 of your payload you can save upwards of

06:11 30 to 50 percent on bandwidth it just

06:12 depends

06:14 uh for the zoom video service that i

06:16 have running it's got large payloads so

06:18 you may not realize that i have a

06:20 bandwidth but you will see you will

06:21 still see significant downward savings

06:24 so i'm going to keep the zoom video

06:26 going

06:27 keep the traffic flowing

06:29 i'm going to go back to the ssr

06:31 conductor

06:32 i'm going to go back to our custom

06:33 reports and we're going to take a quick

06:35 look

06:36 at what we have here and so we have a

06:39 secure vector routing comparison chart

06:41 which provides the estimated bandwidth

06:43 savings when you compare our secure

06:46 vector routing technology to a

06:48 traditional sd-wan technology so if i go

06:51 into that chart you will see

06:53 that it's measuring real-time the

06:54 bandwidth savings i have right now so so

06:57 far over the past five minutes since

06:59 running this zoom video service i've

07:02 saved 14.35

07:05 on bandwidth using secure vector routing

07:08 versus a traditional sd-wan overlay

07:10 technology and specifically when you

07:12 factor in an sd1 technology that uses

07:15 vxlan

07:17 ipsec

07:18 and gre

07:20 so pretty significant here and what i'll

07:23 offer up is

07:24 the savings this savings is for just one

07:28 router right the branch to

07:31 the data center imagine now if you've

07:33 got hundreds or even thousands of

07:35 routers all of a sudden

07:36 this savings of 14.35

07:40 in aggregate at the heading or data

07:42 center or at the hub adds up
