Cisco unveils secure network based on one policy source and management solution for entire network

Telecom Lead India: Networking major Cisco has introduced secure network infrastructure based on one policy source and one management solution for entire network.

With Cisco’s Unified Access solution, the company is trying to assist networks when demands will expand to manage 19 billion new connected devices and handle 18 times the amount of today’s global mobile data traffic.

Cisco said its Unified Access provides consistent set of network capabilities across wired, wireless and virtual private network (VPN) networks, allowing them to behave as a single entity.

Moreover, Cisco’s new secure network solution is also designed to assist IT companies to become a competitive differentiation to the business by shifting the focus from time-consuming operational activities to developing innovative business offerings, such as new connected consumer experiences or personalized connected banking services.

Meanwhile, Cisco’s expanded mobility portfolio extends enterprise features to midmarket customers at an attractive price without sacrificing wireless network quality. Cisco Unified Access includes new innovations in Cisco policy and management solutions to further simplify IT operations and improve user experience.

“Cisco’s vision is to help IT organizations drive business innovation by harnessing market transitions such as cloud, BYOD and surge of data to ultimately deliver new connected experiences over any network,” said Sujai Hajela, vice president and general manager, Wireless Networking Group, Cisco.

“Cisco Prime Infrastructure is a core component of our wireless network and it has enabled us to manage and monitor the controllers and access points, as well as visualizing network performance and troubleshooting client problems,” said Ken LeCompte, manager of information technology, Rutgers University.

“Instead of looking at BYOD as a challenge, Pflugerville Independent School District wanted to approach it as Cisco allows us to do: as an opportunity to boost academic engagement and achievement,” said Victor Valdez, executive director of technology, Pflugerville (Texas) Independent School District.
