Mass scale automation delivered

Automation that’s intelligent. Architecture that’s open. A network that's aware.

Cisco Crosswork

The first closed-loop, mass-scale automation solution that embraces multivendor networks. Built on the proven foundation of open APIs in Cisco Network Service Orchestrator and WAE, Cisco Crosswork now incorporates advanced data consolidation, machine learning, event correlation, and change automation down to the individual network slice and soon even across domains. 

Cisco Crosswork is about being proactive, not just in actions, but in vision. It’s about enabling networks to ultimately self-heal, self-optimize, and self-protect, by repairing and optimizing infrastructure from the inside – without interruption or human intervention.

Mass awareness

Collecting information from every corner of your network. Across your network, in near real time, at mass scale.

Augmented intelligence

Constantly and excessively evaluating the collected data for you. Finding the outliers—the red flags and soon-to-be red flags—and letting you know.

Proactive control

Staying ahead of things. Becoming more efficient and secure. So you can do one thing at once, for once.

Closed-loop automation

Closed-loop automation allows you to spend more time and resources on what matters to your business: accelerating revenue. Lower your OpEx by reducing the time it takes you to plan, design, implement, operate, and optimize your network.

Cisco Crosswork SON

Cisco Crosswork SON is a suite of leading multi-vendor multi-technology (MVMT) self-organizing network (SON) solutions. This powerful platform uses machine learning and a set of applications that automate the radio access network (RAN).

✔ Extends beyond the RAN to optimize the user experience from end-device to the core and the internet.

✔ xRAN open APIs enables user-level visibility in real time and implement a control loop directly with the xRAN controller. This enables real-time optimization at the edge while being orchestrated by Cisco Crosswork centralized SON to assure optimal network performance.

✔ Delivers the ability to reduce the operating cost (CapEx and OpEx) while improving user experience.
 

Crosswork Network Insights

Cisco Crosswork Network Insights provides riche analysis, visualization, and alerting on actionable network events. The Cisco Network Insights Analytic Engine enriches routing data with additional data sources such as RPKI, WHOIS, and IP Geolocation, to reduce the mean time it takes to identify and repair them.

Crosswork Trust Insights

Expanding upon the Crosswork Cloud, Cisco Crosswork Trust Insights is a cloud-based SaaS service that provides signed and encrypted system integrity information to track the trust posture of network hardware and software components. Crosswork trust Insights aggregates hardware and software signature information from your network devices and gathers evidence to validate if the hardware is authentic and running software maps to published known good values (KGVs).

Cisco Crosswork at work

See how Cisco Crosswork can be used to transform business and overcome the most difficult challenges.

Use existing bandwidth more effectively and deliver new, tiered services to your customers with automation.

Differentiate experiences by accelerating customer onboarding, service changes, and upgrades with fewer interruptions.

Increase speed to revenue through multi-vendor orchestration

Cisco NSO uses open API orchestration across your entire network to deliver high-quality services quickly and easily.

Now, with the introduction of NSO 5, you can accelerate revenue-generating services with automated, self-service, and on-demand provisioning in even the largest multi-vendor networks with more than 100,000 devices and beyond.

Reduce OpEx with automation

Customer demands are complicated, but closed-loop automation from Cisco simplifies and speeds both awareness and action.

  • Cisco Crosswork SON (Self Organizing Network) uses machine learning to react faster to network issues, predicting potential issues based on gathered (and ingested) data.
  • Cisco Crosswork Network Insights is the first SaaS offering from Cisco. It is a cloud-based service that provides a rich analysis of routing and network data to significantly reduce the mean time to repair of networking issues, which can reduce costs and improve the subscriber experience.
