Delivering the New Workspace Experience

Borderless Networks, a Cisco next-generation architecture, delivers the new workspace experience, connecting anyone, anywhere, using any device, to any resource -- securely, reliably, seamlessly.

We work, live, play, and learn in a world that has no boundaries and knows no borders. Cisco’s Borderless Networks architecture addresses key IT and business challenges to help create a truly borderless experience by bringing interactions closer to the employee and customer.

Systems innovations across routing, switching, wireless, acceleration, and security help organizations deliver mobility, security, and performance to transform the way IT delivers and scales those services on the network.

Cisco's five-phase plan for Borderless Networks provides a roadmap to the advanced features and services that will help enable the next-generation workspace experience.

  • Phase 1: Borderless Network Services - Delivering innovations IN and ON the network that optimize network availability, performance, and security.
  • Phase 2: Borderless User Services - Embedding key services spanning mobility, security, and application performance across all elements of the network.
  • Phase 3: Borderless Policy - Implementing a unified policy framework for managing security, identity, and access to the network and network resources.
  • Phase 4: Borderless Integration Framework - Bringing end-to-end network-to-endpoint intelligence through open, extensible interfaces into the network.
  • Phase 5: Borderless Experience - Converging services and systems to provide a superior customer and employee experience regardless of location, device, or application.

With borderless networks, you can enjoy a workspace experience beyond conventional device, application, and performance borders:

  • Open up new business models by bringing interactions closer to their customers
  • Optimize resource use and increase productivity with any device, anywhere, any time
  • Reduce costs and improve operational efficiency
