The path to digitization requires a digital network that evolves beyond just connectivity, and enables business innovation, generate insights while reducing cost and complexity with new orchestration and automation capabilities.

Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA), provides an extensible and software driven architecture for digital business. Cisco’s DNA extends a the policy driven approach and software strategy throughout the entire network.

Come listen to Brad Edgeworth discuss Cisco’s Software-Defined Access (SD-Access), a key component of Cisco’s DNA, built on the principles for transforming the how we build and manage Campus networks by making them: faster, easier to deploy, more secure against threats (internal and external), and reducing operational costs.

Benefits of Cisco SD-Access
  • Secure your organization and achieve regulatory compliance with end-to-end segmentation that keeps user, device and application traffic separate without redesigning the network
  • Improve the workforce experience by automating user access policy and applying the right policies for users or devices to any application across the network
  • Boost operational effectiveness by enabling a consistent user experience anywhere without compromise – all with a single network fabric
