Reduce installation

and operational costs

Not only has Cisco DNA been shown to reduce network installation costs by 79%,
but IDC’s report showed a real-world increase in network operations
productivity of 28%.

IDC also found that customers were able to shave 17% off of the time it took
to deliver new applications. There are even reduced maintenance costs and 80%
more energy savings possible by using Cisco DNA.

Prepare for the

self-driving network

Cisco DNA already includes controller-based networking, advanced security
and network analytics, and built-in threat detection. Soon, there’ll be a
single, cross-domain orchestration solution, leading ultimately to a self-driving
network with policy-based compliance to drive optimisation.

The edge as

sensor and enforcer.

The network edge is the first line of defence—where policy is applied to determine who or
what has access to your network. It takes only one time for a data breach to affect your
organisation. With so much potential for infiltration, it’s critical to have a trusted solution
to identify and control what gets on the network.

5

Grow at the

pace of tomorrow.

Designed with the future in mind, Cisco DNA prepares the network to add new
functionality and adapt at the speed of changes in the environment, the business, or the
industry. Bottom line: An edge network that’s open and programmable leaves a lot more
room for innovation.

Ways that Cisco DNA is making your network edge intelligent
arrow
01

Deliver better sensor and enforcer.

Your organisation thrives on connectivity. Cisco is the only vendor to team up with Apple to deliver a better mobile experience built on optimised Wi-Fi and roaming. With DNA, we’re making it easy to control and improve customer and employee experiences with the network edge.

02

Innovate.Refine. Repeat.

As increased connectivity becomes the norm, companies are updating their network infrastructure to tap into the opportunities and data insights that come with digital transformation. Cisco is leading the way with continued innovation at the network edge and beyond.

03

The evolution of automation.

More users. More devices. More locations to manage. More of everything means automation is more critical than ever. Network virtualisation helps you manage networks and policies by user type, allowing for quick launches and faster threat detection.
