Network Planning and Analytics

WAE Planning evolved from the Cisco MATE software suite. It provides a cross-sectional view of traffic, topology, and equipment state. And it takes advantage of a predictive model that performs “what if” analyses of failure impacts. You can add measuring, trending, and health monitoring capabilities to maintain a high-performance network.
