How is Cisco DNA virtualizing the retail branch network?

Virtualization in retail banking is a proven strategy that is transforming the IT landscape and fundamentally changing the way the branch environment is architected. It simplifies the physical infrastructure, providing centralized management, flexibility, and more agile leveraging of Cisco DNA™.

Virtualization enables bank branches to respond to market changes with dynamic resource management, faster provisioning, and improved deployment for great scalability. Banks need to be able to change software and add new products in a reasonable timeframe. A virtual infrastructure enables them to be more agile, without having to buy new hardware, ship, receive, and install it.

With a simple push of a button, reduce deployment time from 2 to 4 weeks to under
60 minutes.
