            The Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller - Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) is a software-defined networking (SDN) controller for enterprise networks (in the campus or branch and the WAN). It delivers an elastic platform for policy-based automation that simplifies and abstracts the network. It can enable transformation of business intent to network control. The platform is built to host multiple, easy-to-use SDN applications that use open, northbound representational state transfer (REST) APIs and drive core network automation solutions. The platform also supports a number of southbound protocols that enable it to communicate with the breadth of network devices customers already have in place, and extend SDN benefits to both greenfield and brownfield environments, immediately from the start. The goal of the APIC-EM platform is to power next-generation SDN applications that will dramatically lower operational expenditures and increase network agility to align with business needs.

            General Information FEATURES:


            Network Information Database (NIDB):
            - APIC-EM periodically scans the network to create a “single source of truth” for IT. This inventory includes all network devices, along with an abstraction for the entire enterprise network. The NIDB allows applications to be device-independent, so configuration differences between devices aren’t a problem.

            Network topology visualization:
            - APIC-EM auto-discovers and maps network devices to a physical topology with detailed device-level data. With its auto-visualization feature, it presents a highly interactive mechanism for viewing and troubleshooting the network. You can also easily customize its GUI.

            Plug and Play application:
            - Cisco Network Plug-and-Play provides a highly secure, scalable, seamless, and unified zero-touch-deployment experience for customers across Cisco's entire enterprise network portfolio of wired and wireless devices. It reduces the burden on enterprises by greatly simplifying the deployment process for new devices, which can significantly lower operating expenditures (OpEx) as well.

            Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) application:
            - The separately licensed IWAN application for APIC-EM greatly simplifies the provisioning of IWAN network profiles with simple business policies. The IWAN application defines business-level preferences by application or groups of applications. It then translates that priority into the network configuration that drives quality of service (QoS), preferred path routing over hybrid WAN links, secure overlay, performance visualization, and more. This advanced software-defined-WAN (SD-WAN) capability guarantees delivery of application experience over any connection using otherwise inactive or backup links.

            Enterprise Service Automation (ESA) application:
            - The separately licensed ESA application for APIC-EM centrally orchestrates and manages network services, making it simple to deploy and manage them. ESA provides a standardized site design, zero-touch deployment, and automated monitoring of network services, regardless of platform. It helps ensure optimal performance of virtual network functions (VNFs) running on the Cisco Enterprise Network Functions Virtualization Infrastructure Software (NFVIS) by monitoring and managing the health and lifecycle of the services.

            Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificate:
            - The PKI service provides an integrated authentication server for automated key management. It automates the lifecycle management of issuing, renewing, and revoking the PKI X.509 certificate for apps such as IWAN. This service greatly simplifies the process of establishing and maintaining trust in the network.

            Path Trace application:
            - Inspection, interrogation, and remediation of network problems rely on manual techniques today, which may not only be slow and inaccurate, but also quite expensive. Given a five-tuple description, the Path Trace application solves this problem by automating inspection and visualization of the path taken by a flow between two endpoints in the network.

            High availability:
            - High availability is provided in N+1 redundancy mode with full data persistence for high availability and scale. All the nodes work in active-active mode for optimal performance and load sharing.

            Backup and restore:
            APIC-EM supports complete backup and restore of the entire database for added protection. The network database can now be easily backed up and restored in a user-friendly way with a few clicks from the controller UI.
