Always-on Connections for Store Networks and Powering Intelligent Systems
In the fast-paced world of retail, network reliability is everything—but so are security, agility, and cost-effectiveness. Retailers want it all, and they depend on their IT administrators to balance these needs. Whether it’s ensuring an always-on connection for store networks, powering intelligent systems aimed at swaying buyer behavior, or transmitting real-time analytics to inform marketing and inventory decisions, the bedrock of successful retailing is a network that can support the growing list of mission-critical applications dependent on secure Internet connectivity.
In the past, finding a solution to balance these demands has been difficult at best. Less expensive wired options like DSL mean hours of downtime each month. Alternatives like T1 connections deliver more uptime but carry a price tag that usually puts large-scale distributed deployments out of reach.
5G will be a transformative force, offering enhanced mobile broadband and enabling a huge volume of machine to machine communications, based on its ultra-reliable, and low latency network. For comms service providers it puts them in a strong position to offer new services, including in the Internet of Things (IoT), visual computing, analytics, and enhanced mobility.
Your network doesn’t just transport data. It serves a myriad of apps and endpoints—mobile devices, sensors, servers, machines, cameras, wearables—and all the employees, customers, and processes that use them. Which means it can produce invaluable contextual intelligence based on real-time analytics to help you navigate the growing demands of business, security, operations, and IT.

SIEM solutions detect real attacks from the thousands of events that are happening in the network. When an unexpected and potentially dangerous event is recognized, engineers take a quick (temporary) action to block the security leak, diagnose what really went wrong, determine what else is at risk, and decide on a fix.

Intent-based networking is the difference between a network that needs continuous attention and one that simply understands what you need and makes it happen. It’s the difference between doing thousands of tasks manually and having an automated system that helps you focus on business goals.
Cisco DNA is the open, software-driven platform that turns vision into reality. Virtualization, automation, analytics, and cloud, all in one architecture.
A hospital’s network is the foundation for the critical applications that run on it, where most of those applications are related to the hospitals core businesses. The return on the investments made in EMR (electronic medical records), PACS (picture archiving and communication system), clinical imaging systems and workstations on wheels, can only be truly realized if those assets are always available to the people in need in a reliable, secure and highly optimized way, at a fixed location, or while mobile.

Data is growing at amazing rates and will continue this rapid rate of growth. New techniques in data processing and analytics including AI, machine and deep learning allow specially designed applications to not only analyze data but learn from the analysis and make predictions.
Computer systems consisting of multi-core CPUs or GPUs using parallel processing and extremely fast networks are required to process the data. However, legacy storage solutions are based on architectures that are decades old, un-scalable and not well suited for the massive concurrency required by machine learning. Legacy storage is becoming a bottleneck in processing big data and a new storage technology is needed to meet data analytics performance needs.

Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT).
Gain an Edge by Taking Analytics to the Edge!
Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Defined by Cisco as “the intelligent connectivity of physical devices, driving massive gains in efficiency, business growth, and quality of life,” IoT often represents the quickest path to IoE value for private and public sector organizations.
This paper combines original and secondary research, as well as economic analysis, to provide a roadmap for maximizing value from IoT investments. It also explains why, in the worlds of IoT and IoE, the combination of edge computing/analytics and data center/cloud is essential to driving actionable insights that produce improved business outcomes.
Avi Vantage is the only solution that delivers built-in application analytics in addition to enterprise-grade load balancing and application security. With millions of data points collected in real time, the platform delivers network-DVR like capabilities with the

It has been well documented that just having a Facebook page or sending the occasional tweet are not enough to have a significant, sustainable impact on business results. The good news is that there are multiple ways to take advantage of the social media space, and one of the most effective places to start is actually from your own website.
Between the Internet of Things, customer experience and loyalty programs, social network monitoring, connected enterprise systems and other information sources, today's organizations have access to more data than they ever had before-and frankly, more than they may know what to do with. The challenge is to not just understand that data, but actualize it and use it to recognize real business value. This ebook will walk you through a sample scenario with Albert, a data scientist who wants to put text analytics to work by using the Word2vec algorithm and other data science tools.
Today, working remotely has never been easier, due to the ubiquity of mobile devices and reliable Internet connectivity. The ease with which a worker can get connected to the corporate network delivers the impression that your co-worker is down the hall, when in fact they are traveling internationally.
