By: Cisco Systems, Inc. Latest Version: 17.3.4a

Product Overview

Bring Your Own License (BYOL) for CSR Transit VPC with Transit Gateway solution of the Cisco Cloud Services Router (CSR1000V) delivers maximum performance for virtual enterprise-class networking services in the AWS cloud. The CSR transit VPC serves as a global network transit center for connecting geographically dispersed VPCs and remote networks.

A CSR1000v pair is deployed in Transit VPC with VPN attachment to Transit Gateway (TGW) to provide VPN connectivity to various on-premise branch sites with greater control and functionality (QoS, Segmentation, encryption between the Transit VPC and branch sites, etc.). TGW is a regional network transit hub service provided by AWS to interconnect your VPCs in the same region in AWS cloud.

This solution uses lambda functions to first creates a Transit VPC and orchestrates two CSRs in this Transit VPC. Next it orchestrates a transit gateway, creates VPN connections with the CSRs and VPN attachment between CSRs and the transit gateway. The function then saves the VPN connection information to Amazon S3 bucket.
