A new era of networking for government.

The Network. Intuitive.

Explore Cisco’s
intent-based networking

Governments need a network that provides the right visibility and contextual insight into the rising expectations of citizens and constituents.

A network that understands intent and enhances your services to be more useful, usable, and efficient.

But most importantly, a network that defends your citizens, your personnel, and your agencies against cyber threats.

That’s intent-based networking.

It’s constantly learning.

The new network learns in real time from devices, users, and applications. Provide more relevant citizen experiences while increasing agency productivity.

It’s constantly adapting.

The new network can address rising expectations for a blend of in-person and digital services. Deliver the right expertise to residents and visitors when and where it's needed.

It’s constantly protecting.

The new network is constantly on guard to defend against security breaches, protecting both government and citizen data.
