Wired and Wireless should not be kept apart.
The Cisco Catalyst 9000 and 9000X families combine them.
Separate operating system. Separate management. Separate security. But that’s changing.
Here are 4 ways this will help you.
When you combine wired and wireless on the same operating system, you have one less operating system to manage and secure.
The Catalyst 9000 and 9000X switches and wireless runs on Cisco IOS® XE Software, a modern, modular, and programmable operating system that supports the full capabilities of our intent-based networking controller: Cisco DNA Center.
Cut your operating costs by eliminating the IT burden of managing and securing two operating systems.
For every $1 that companies spend on network equipment, they spend $3 on network operations and management.
With Cisco IOS XE, your IT team can deploy services faster, give users one seamless experience, and certify one release—instead of two.
Deploy consistent security policy across all devices connecting to your network—both wired and wireless. Your wireless infrastructure can now become the strongest 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.
The devices—and the threats—will keep multiplying. So will the opportunities. Keep up with the challenges and the innovations by mobilizing the strengths of intent-based networking everywhere—across both wired and wireless.
The new Catalyst 9000X models in the Catalyst 9000 switching family offer premium-level features for higher scale, faster performance, and hybrid work. Use them to support your users wherever they're working, secure your network from the inside out, and enjoy continuous zero-trust security.
Our software-based model allows continuous innovation—(e.g., Internet of Things [IoT] integration, embedded wireless controller, and rich analytics)—via Cisco IOS XE software , Cisco DNA Center and Meraki Dashboard. Get a rich set of open standards-based, programmable APIs and model-driven telemetry that provide an easy way to automate day-0 to day-N network operations.
