    Customer has asked me to demonstrate that our AOS-CX switches can replace a legacy switching solution that has NQA functionality configured to decide which of the two routes (active - standby) should route traffic. Important to note, Customer does not use dynamic routing protocols.


    Reading the AOS-CX monitoring and NAE guides I concluded the same functionality that NQA delivers can be achieved by combining the functionality of IP-SLA with a NAE script (conectivity_monitor v1.1).


    The way to demo to Customer was this way:


    1. Virtual test environment setup using the AOS-CX OVA (Virtual.10.03.0020). Picture1.png
    2. IP-SLA configuration. Picture2.png
    3. Configuration of Agents and setup of the monitoring dashboard: Picture3.png

    The result of the demo was successful, combining IP-SLA and NAE I was able to demonstrate a routing policy based on the availability of the main - backup links.

    This is the video of the PoC result. Attached you will find a pdf with all the details.
