An Introduction to Avaya Fabric
Alex Williams
Network Specialist – Western Region
The simple truth
Networks are largely managed
and operated as they were over
ten or more years ago
Brute force, CLI, scripts,
spreadsheets and chasing
spanning tree or OSPF gremlins is
more often than not, the norm.
…why?

“IT budgeting is both art and science,
combining financial management
expertise and executive judgment”
Gartner, 2012

But the nagging question is why….
• Why are we still doing moves, adds & changes manually?
• Why do we “live with” unstable networks causing application
downtime?
• Why do we build “overlay” network for critical applications?
• Why, when OPEX = 80% budget, do we settle for complexity?
• Why, when labor is the largest line-item expense, do we make
it so labor-intensive to plan, configure & maintain a network?
And why hasn’t anyone done something about this?
Where’s the ‘Executive Judgment’ side of IT budgeting?

“We need 1,000 more security
cameras up by Friday”
“Our financial transactions need
to be isolated by next week”
“We need to transfer a live server
instance now!”
“We need to have confidence of
uninterrupted service”

Fabric Attach – How does it work?
Baseline Setup
Zero Touch Provisioning

Fabric (SPB cloud) is preconfigured with services


FA Client and FA Server need not have ISIDs, VLANs,
port membership, uplink/trunk ports and tagging, etc.,
configured
FA Client auto attaches to the FA Server to obtain
mgmt VLAN and IP config

End points and client connections trigger auto
configuration of ISIDs, VLANs, port membership, etc.,
on FA Client and FA Server

End points and clients are automatically attached to
authorized services

FA Client need not have IP and mgmt VLAN configured
(i.e., vanilla switch “out of the box”)
Fabric Attach is fully integrated into the overall Avaya Networking solution
