Overview

The Ipanema Autonomic Networking System (ANS) uses both software and hardware components. The fully featured hardware components are called ip|engines. These devices are installed within the customer VPN at edge locations, typically between a CPE router and the LAN. Requiring no specific local configuration except an IP address, an ip|engine is a self-managed and cooperative device that operates under the control of the ANS central management software, called SALSA. Each ip|engine acts as a local point of control within ANS. ip|engines work collectively in real-time to discover the applications and measure the network's performance and usage ip|engine. As part of ANS, the ip|engines cooperate and tune themselves automatically to the dynamic nature of the application traffic, globally enforcing the Application SLAs. They take into account meshed flows, different types of congestion, application competition for resources and so on. The ip|engines adapt to longer term changes within the business, such as a change in the distribution of users across sites, a newly deployed application or a new site, as well as the evolution of infrastructure and services into the cloud.
