Stream - The digital backbone to your business

Application Quality of Experience

In today’s modern network, ensuring applications have priority and perform as expected is key to business productivity.

The Stream SD-WAN platform takes your networking strategy to a higher level by combining automation with intelligence.

Application Steering utilises the AppQoE protocol which employs the capabilities of two application security services – application identification (AppID) and advanced policy-based routing (APBR). It uses AppID to identify specific applications in your network and advanced policy-based routing (APBR) to specify a path for certain traffic. In conjunction with the SLA set the SD-WAN network automatically routes traffic dependant on metrics such as latency, jitter, round trip time and link utilisation ensuring your applications have access to the best network path available, at all times.

Watch our Application Performance Monitoring video for an overview on how Application Quality of Experience and SD-WAN can help transition your organisation to intent-based networking, taking your networking strategy to a higher level by combining automation with intelligence!


Application Quality of Experience (AppQOE) Benefits

With 81% of businesses adopting a multi-cloud strategy with work loads in public, private and hybrid clouds ensuring you can guranteee users consistent application performance across wide area networks is key to productivity.

 With AppQOE you can…

Eliminate Expensive MPLS QoS

With SD-WAN Application Quality of Experience is intergrated within the SD-WAN service allowing customers to eliminate expensive Quality of Service charges on MPLS networks

Automate your network

Application Quality of Experience parameters enable organisations
to automate network traffic ensuring applications traverse the best link possible based on the SLA set without human intervention.

Improve User Experience

Reduce technical resource overhead and improve users productivity by eliminating application issues across your network.

Implement new applications fast

Using the APPID protocol it’s easy to configure and deploy Application performance monitoring for any application your business uses.

Application Quality of Experience Technical Overview

AppQoE utilises the capabilities of two application security services – application identification (AppID) and advanced policy-based routing (APBR). AppQOE uses AppID to identify the applications you use in your network and then with advanced policy-based routing (APBR) it selects a path for the application traffic by associating SLA profiles to a routing instance.


APBR provides application aware routing by combining Policy based routing and an application aware traffic management solution to ensure your applications are routed based on network performance.


APPID identifies applications as constituents of application groups in TCP/UDP/ICMP traffic. With a preset list of applications available from Youtube to O365 we can also identify new applications fast and efficently.

Application Probes

When sending application traffic across the network Contrail Service Orchestrator (CSO) also sends passive and active probes to detect SLA violations and to select an alternate path for that particular application.

Application SLA’s

AppQoE SLA’s define accepted Round Trip Time (RTT), jitter, and packet loss for each application your run on your network, and based on the score, seamlessly reroutes applications to the alternate path if performance of the primary link is below acceptable levels.

What is application quality of experience?

An application quality of experience (AppQoE) aims to improve end-user experience by monitoring class-of-service parameters and ensuring SLA compliance with application traffic.

SD-WAN Benefits
