vAnalytics?

Hi,

 

Im new to SD-WAN etc and have just started reading through an official cert guide for the CCNP exam ENSDWI.

 

Theres a bit about vAnalytics which sounds interesting. I went to our company meraki portal (which I assume is the vMange portal even though it doesn't say it anywhere) to have a look.

 

Firs to of all I wanted to check if we had the license and had enabled it. I went to Insight - licensing and saw that "analytics" was enabled on all sites.

 

Is this the same as vAnalytics? It doesnt seem to be. After a lot of google searching I finally managed to find a sperate dashboard for vAnalytics (why so hard to find?)
https://eu01.analytics.sdwan.cisco.com/v3/login 

But I don't seem to have a login that works. Is this a totally different thing and separate from vManage/Insight?
If so, where/how do you get licensing for it etc?

Also, isn't the whole point of of the SD-WAN management plane that everything is together in one place?

Kind of a big deal

Cisco has two SD-WAN solutions. In this community we talk about the Meraki implementation. The other solution is the "Cisco SD-WAN" which has its roots in the Viptella acquisition. These two solutions are completely separate and are not compatible with each other. And well, with you studying for ENSDWI, we are all sorry to see you go ... 😉 But the Cisco Learning Network https://learningnetwork.cisco.com or the Cisco Support Community https://community.cisco.com are probably the right places for your questions. Please come back for your ECMS studies! 🙂

ah I see, apologies. I had no idea there were two totally different implementations (we use Meraki). 
So is everything in the ENSDWI all to do with the vipteala implementation then? Good job I found out now before I got too deep in it lol.

I just thought Meraki and Viptella were optional hardware that both ran the same SD-WAN solution.

No need to apologise. Yes, they are different software on different hardware. And the ENSDWI is completely touching the "other" solution.
