Features and Capabilities

With Cisco Cloud Services Platform 2100, you can quickly deploy any Cisco or third-party network virtual service through a simple, built-in, native web user interface (WebUI), command-line interface (CLI), or representational state transfer (REST) API.

The platform helps you answer today's data center challenges, and respond fast to changing service demands.


With Cloud Services Platform 2100 as the base NFV platform, Secure Agile Exchange securely connects users, including employees, customers, and partners, to applications. By deploying Secure Agile Exchange in colocation centers, customers can virtualize network services as well as other applications and consolidate them into a single platform. This makes it simple to deploy and manage, and can save costs.

Secure Agile Exchange comprises:

  • NFV platform: CSP 2100
  • Switching fabric: Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches
  • Networking services: Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V, Adaptive Security Virtual Appliance, Cisco Firepower NGFW Virtual, and third-party VNFs
  • Services, including Cisco Advisory and Implementation Services and Cisco Managed Services


In many colocations and data centers, network services run on dedicated appliances. This approach locks you into particular vendors and does not provide much flexibility. You often have to wait weeks or even months for new hardware.

Other challenges include:

  • Keeping pace with the service team to deploy service quickly
  • Dealing with OpenStack complexity and overhead requirements
  • VMware product and support costs, and access to VMware resources
  • Familiarity with dedicated hardware appliances


Accelerate your success in deploying and optimizing the Cloud Services Platform 2100.
