Onboarding

Add devices to Panorama using one or more serial numbers and then onboarding devices to configured SD-WAN topologies.

 

Configure Shared Elements

Rapid configuration of shared elements such as link tags, traffic distribution profiles, path quality profiles, and catch-all policies. Shared elements are used as part of the individual site configurations.

 

Site Creation

SD-WAN configurations and eventual device configurations are topology dependent. The site creation skillet uses a building block approach using various interface and addressing types, Panorama variables, and zones. These sites can then be used as hub/branch options to create the SD-WAN topology
