Securing the Open Network
Experts discuss the security implications of software-defined networks (SDN).
Enhanced application experience across the Enterprise
Cisco Open Network Environment (ONE) enables applications and networks to be mutually aware and delivers ultimate application experience across the WAN and campus networks.
IT consolidation and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trends are further increasing the importance of the WAN as a critical piece of infrastructure for enterprise networks. Application experience, and therefore employee productivity, is key to IT being a transformative force in promoting business growth. The Cisco branch and campus suite of products deliver optimal application experience more securely while simplifying IT operations to help ensure a low TCO.
Cisco ONE goes beyond the Software-Defined Networks (SDN) model and combines deep visibility into physical and virtual infrastructure with programmability and automation of branch (WAN) and campus networks. This supports greater network agility and responsiveness to enterprise applications. The result is a tightly integrated, application-aware network offering improved scalability and operational simplicity.
Whether delivering seasonal network capacity to the branch or analytics to enforce campus security, Cisco ONE successfully addresses a variety of use cases. Customers have a choice of technologies, including controllers, agents, and network overlays. Furthermore, Cisco ONE expands standards-based programmability through open APIs provided in onePK to help ensure enterprise applications and networks are mutually aware and able to deliver the best application experience possible.
Cisco ONE harvests network intelligence and facilitates application prioritization over the WAN. This helps organizations realize the business benefits of IT consolidation while supporting ultimate application experiences and employee productivity over the branch, WAN, and campus networks.
Enhanced Cloud Services
Cisco ONE offers branch, WAN, and campus network programmability through Cisco Cloud Connectors on the Cisco Integrated Services Router Generation 2, the virtual Cloud Services Router CSR 1000V, and Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series Switches. This functionality enhances private, hybrid, and public cloud services.
Network Analytics and Response
Cisco ONE helps campus networks to better address vertical application requirements. For example, branch and campus wide analytics can be captured and used to automatically enforce network security, allowing for consistent and pervasive security policies.
