The Basic configuration mode is introduced to allow network administrators to configure basic sites easily and quickly. Using WAN Link templates, you can configure certain settings and, save it as templates, and then apply these templates to other sites. This reduce repetitive tasks and allows configuring new sites with minimal clicks.
The simplified basic configuration mode has two views Global and Site.
Using the Global tab, you can:
- Set the global virtual WAN network encryption settings.
- Create multiple WAN Link Templates and map it to Service Providers.
- Create WAN Link Template for MPLS links.
- Configure the WAN Link speeds in Mbps or Kbps.
- Set up MPLS Queues using % or kbps.
Using the Sites tab, you can:
- Add Sites.
- Enable site as intermediate node.
- Enable dynamic virtual path.
- Clone Sites.
Existing users can observe that one configuration change on the Basic mode view might modify or change more than one setting in Advance mode. Basic mode does allow Importing of existing configurations, and allows you to move between Basic and Advanced modes.
To set global virtual WAN network encryption settings:
To create WAN Link Templates and associate it to Service Provider:
The Basic > Sites view simplifies the configuration process by enabling you to create a configuration file that generates a virtual path between the defined sites. The required configuration properties for a virtual path between sites include:
- WAN Links
- Static Routes
You can now easily duplicate by using the clone option. This simplifies the process of creating multiple similar sites.
