Bias-Free Language

Introduction

Traditional WAN infrastructure was good at a time when the majority of branch office traffic flowed within the enterprise intranet boundary. However, new cloud services and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications are changing the traffic pattern. Today, the majority of enterprise traffic flows to public clouds and the Internet. This change creates new requirements for security, application performance, cloud connectivity, management, and operations.

Cisco’s intent-based WAN offers an entirely new approach to manage and operate your WAN infrastructure. It provides the following key benefits:

     Makes your network ready for SaaS applications

     Simplifies your WAN architecture and makes it easier to manage, operate, and consume

     Balances security and application experience with direct Internet access at the branch

You can begin this intent-based WAN journey with the new SD-WAN and Routing subscription offers (Figure 1).

With the new SD-WAN and Routing subscription tiers, you get the flexibility to consume the latest technology, either in the cloud or on your premises, across the entire routing stack. All are available as 3- or 5-year subscriptions. Cisco DNA Advantage for SD-WAN and Routing is also available as a 7-year subscription. Choosing the subscription is a simple 5-step process (Figure 2).

Introduction to Smart Licensing

Cisco Smart Licensing is a flexible licensing model that provides you with an easier, faster, and more consistent way to purchase and manage software across the Cisco portfolio and across your organization. And it’s secure – you control what users can access. With Smart Licensing you get:

     Easy Activation: Smart Licensing establishes a pool of software licenses that can be used across the entire organization—no more PAKs (Product Activation Keys)

     Unified Management: My Cisco Entitlements (MCE) provides a complete view into all of your Cisco products and services in an easy-to-use portal, so you always know what you have and what you are using

     License Flexibility: Your software is not node-locked to your hardware, so you can easily use and transfer licenses as needed

To use Smart Licensing, you must first set up a Smart Account on Cisco Software Central.

For a more detailed overview on Cisco Licensing, go to cisco.com/go/licensingguide.
