Cisco Unified Access is an intelligent network platform that can enable connected experiences and operational efficiencies. It is the business foundation to support the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, and the Internet of Everything (IoE). Now you can intelligently connect people, processes, data, and things with greater intelligence, security, and efficiency than ever before.
Based on One Policy, One Management, and One Network, the Cisco Unified Access solution delivers an integrated and simplified intelligent network platform. It can enable IT to spend less time running the network and more time encouraging innovation that can differentiate and transform business. It allows organizations to empower their users to work their way.
One Policy provides context-based central policy across the entire network with systemwide visibility on who and what is on the network - wired, wireless, or VPN. It simplifies the design and implementation of security policies throughout the network.
One Management provides comprehensive lifecycle management, performance assurance, and compliance for converged wired and wireless networks, simplifying network management across wired and wireless.
One Network is the convergence of the wired and wireless networks into one physical infrastructure with greater networkwide intelligence, performance, and integration with Cisco Open Network Environment.
Cisco Unified Access can enable IT to spend less time running the network and more time promoting business innovation. It allows organizations to empower users to work their way.
Cisco offers a world-class unified policy platform and distributed enforcement with:
- A single policy across wired, wireless, and VPN; managed and BYOD assets; and multi-device management (MDM) integration
- Context-based control, application visibility and control, and advanced segmentation
- User-specific services, with self-service on-boarding, guest handling, and location-based services
Cisco provides a single integrated solution for comprehensive lifecycle management and user, network, and application performance visibility. Unified Access can deliver:
- Lifecycle management that simplifies and automates infrastructure management tasks
- Improved end-user experience with granular visibility into applications, users, and devices
- Lower TCO by accelerating device time to value, by minimizing business disruption, and by remediating problems faster
Cisco has integrated industry-leading networking and mobility capabilities to help enable a single network architecture. Now you can:
- Accelerate business innovation and growth - Scale to meet new BYOD and cloud demands with faster service roll-outs and efficient change management.
- Promote greater business efficiency - Simplifiy and converge infrastructure with greater network services, consistency, and open, programmable infrastructure.
