A network that stays ahead of business

Proactive Control keeps you one step ahead in controlling every aspect of your business. It helps you optimize the network to realize efficiency gains, control application delivery to offer a superior customer experience, and stop security threats in their tracks. In a mass-scale world, Proactive Control isn’t an option. It’s essential because your customers live in the real world, and they need proactive solutions to protect them.

Proactive control down to the individual network slice

Using standards-based, model-driven programmability, you can drive intent consistently across all devices. You can optimize service delivery across the entire network and gain control down to the individual network slice with recall capabilities that can be safely backed out if necessary.
