4 ways this will help you...
1

One less OS

When you combine wired and wireless on the same operating system, you have one less operating system to manage and secure.

The Catalyst 9000 runs on Cisco IOS XE, a modern, modular, and programmable operating system that supports the full capabilities of our intent-based networking controller: Cisco DNA Center.
2

Your costs go down

Cut your operating costs by eliminating the IT burden of managing and securing two operating systems.

With Cisco IOS XE, your IT team can deploy services faster, give users one seamless experience, and certify one release—instead of two.
3

Your network is more secure

Deploy a consistent security policy across all devices connecting to your network—both wired and wireless. Your wireless infrastructure can now become the first line of defense in identifying malware in encrypted traffic coming from the access layer.

Protect against attackers—even if the attack is in encrypted traffic—with Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA), now supported on both wired and wireless through Cisco IOS Flexible Netflow. Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) provides policy-based segmentation so that users, applications, and things are secure.

Catalyst 9800

The Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controllers are the most secure, resilient, programmable controllers that can be deployed anywhere—on premises, in any cloud, or embedded on a Catalyst switch. They are compatible with the current 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, and are 802.11ax-ready.

Catalyst 9200

Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series switches extend the power of intent-based networking and Catalyst 9000 hardware and software innovation to a broader set of deployments. Highly secure and always on, the Catalyst 9200 Series delivers simplicity without compromise.

Catalyst 9300

The Cisco Catalyst 9300 Series is the next generation of the industry's most widely deployed stackable switching platform. Built for security, IoT, and the cloud, these network switches form the foundation for Cisco's Software-Defined Access, our leading enterprise architecture.

Catalyst 9400

The Cisco Catalyst 9400 Series is the next generation of the industry's most widely deployed enterprise switching platform. These modular access switches are built for security, Internet of Things (IoT), and the cloud. They include state-of-the-art high availability and support up to 9 Tbps—a building block for SD-Access, Cisco's leading enterprise architecture.

Catalyst 9500

The Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series is the first 100/40-Gbps switch purpose built for the enterprise campus. Designed for security, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the cloud, Catalyst 9500 fixed-core switches are high-density building blocks for a next-generation, intent-based network.

Always on. Secure. Flexible. On both wired and wireless.
