Cisco switches give you a digital-ready network foundation that is simple, automated, and secure. Your network holds the key to defending your organization. It is critical that your security architecture enable a secure digital network. It delivers speeds beyond 1 Gigabit on existing Category 5e/6 cables. The technology also supports Power over Ethernet (PoE), PoE+, and Cisco Universal PoE (UPOE) so you don’t need to install new electrical circuits to power your access points. Category 5e cables inside buildings that connect switches to wireless access points are limited to just 1-Gigabit speeds. Cisco founded the NBASE—T Alliance in 2014 to make it possible to support up to 10 Gbps over installed Category 5e and 6 cables. Use NBASE-T to support 802.11ac Wave 2 today. Multigigabit technology supports PoE, PoE+, and UPOE so you don’t need to install new electrical circuits to power your access points.
Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) reduces TCO, automates IT tasks, and accelerates data center application deployments. It accomplishes this using a business-relevant Software-Defined Networking (SDN) policy model across networks, servers, storage, security, and services. Cisco ACI is a comprehensive SDN architecture. This policy based automation solution supports a business relevant application policy language, greater scalability through a distributed enforcement system, and greater network visibility. These benefits are achieved through the integration of physical and virtual environments under one policy model for networks, servers, storage, services, and security. Now you can detect every application in your network and optimize bandwidth with application-aware policies. Cisco AVC monitors application performance and troubleshoots issues that arise.
