Edison has followed the development and use of Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) over the past five years. Cisco ACI delivers an intent-based networking framework to enable agility in the datacenter. It captures higher-level business and user intent in the form of a policy and translates this intent into the network constructs necessary to dynamically provision the network, security, and infrastructure services.
Cisco ACI, the industry-leading software-defined networking solution, facilitates application agility and data center automation. With ACI Anywhere, enable scalable multicloud networks with a consistent policy model, and gain the flexibility to move applications seamlessly to any location or any cloud while maintaining security and high availability.
The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS
Wi-Fi is about to get a reboot. New 802.11ac Wave 2 products will make it possible to deliver LAN-like multigigabit speeds over the wireless network for the first time, enabling previously unimagined scale and flexibility in the enterprise workspace. But how will businesses capitalize on this new capacity when most current Ethernet access cabling maxes out at 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps)? This white paper: ? Introduces the new generation of Cisco® Catalyst® switches with Multigigabit Ethernet technology, the first platforms to combine support for multigigabit wireless speeds with full power over Ethernet (PoE) in an easy-to-deploy solution ? Shows how Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Ethernet switches use NBASE-T technology to empower you to deliver 5-Gbps speeds over your existing access cabling ? Details how Cisco Catalyst Multigigabit Ethernet switches gives you the scale and capacity you need today, while protecting your network investments for the future

Nordics based financial company had challenges in migrating the old legacy network design to Cisco ACI for a new Datacentre. Also it did not had service overview and CMDB to support 150 business services transition. LTI leveraged and implemented several ServiceNow modules, customised 100 odd patterns for 150 business services and executed extensive integration of 25 legacy systems. These transactions and implementation helped in easy cost computation for new business expansions
1. 25% reduction in DC migration time by creating business service oriented move groups
2. Accurate costing of each business service for replication in new regions/geographies
Cisco DNA takes a software-delivered approach to automating and assuring services across your campus, WAN, and branch networks. Based on an open and extensible platform, DNA allows you to build value on the network, so you can streamline operations and facilitate IT and business innovation.
En este documento se identifican las funcionalidades esenciales necesarias en una solución de protección contra malware avanzado y las preguntas clave que debe formularle a su proveedor, y se muestra cómo Cisco combate los ataques de malware avanzado actuales mediante una combinación de cuatro técnicas
NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco AMP for Endpoints v6.0.5. The product was subjected to
thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test
Methodology v2.0, which is available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not
receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s inclusion.
This report provides detailed information about this product and its security effectiveness. Additional comparative
information is available at www.nsslabs.com.
As part of the initial AEP test setup, products were configured in a deployment mode typical to enterprises. As
such, products were configured to mimic an enterprise environment by applying typical applications such as
exclusion policies and tuning requirements. All product-based configurations are reviewed, validated, and
approved by NSS prior to the test. Every effort is made to ensure optimal security effectiveness, as would be the
aim of a typi
Asia Pacific is an exciting region where great strides are being made in digital transformation. It is home to significantly diverse economies and is remarkably leading the charge in developing connected cities of the future—smart cities. Many economies are seeing the benefits of these rapid developments, and as the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes commonplace in organizations and workers continue to work remotely and flexibly, more devices are becoming connected to the Internet.
Ron the CIO challenges IT operations to cut 70% off of the application deployment schedule. Are his application, security, and network teams up to the task? How can SDN in the data center provide a powerful answer?
In this white paper we will discuss:
• Why data center limitations are restricting business agility.
• How Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) supports frequent changes in applications and infrastructure.
• How Cisco and Citrix® have integrated NetScaler® with ACI to improve data center agility.

This edition of Unleashing IT showcases Cisco’s holistic approach to the future of networking: application Centric Infrastructure (aCI). Promoted by Cisco, Intel®, and ecosystem partners, aCI is a true innovation that changes the way technology is delivered in support of business priorities.
This Technology Spotlight examines key trends and discusses the role that Cisco's Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) plays in addressing ongoing challenges for enterprise IT and network managers.
To meet the challenges of IT organizations, Cisco and F5 have developed a shared architectural vision and joint solution to simplify networking and solve pain points in next-generation data centers. The solution extends the F5 Synthesis architecture and programmable Software-Defined Application Services (SDAS) within the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), helping customers efficiently deliver applications that are fast, secure and available.
