The Catalyst 9000 family of switches is at the heart of Cisco’s Network Intuitive strategy. The success of Catalyst 9000 Series Switches is inspiring! We are extending the success further by introducing our newest Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches, which is an entry level enterprise class switch designed for simple branch and small-medium deployments enabling Intent-based networking everywhere. Cisco Catalyst 9200 Series Switches bring in enterprise-class features leveraging the power of UADP ASIC technology and Open IOS XE software which includes support for model-driven programmability and streaming telemetry.
Understanding the business-intent of digital world
The new trends in the networking world and the digital growth is making the networks more complex and difficult to manage. Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture (DNA Center) with SD-Access (SDA) revolutionized the way networks are configured and managed. SD-Access simplifies network segmentation and provides end-to-end automation capabilities along with consistent secure policy-based automation. User experience is further optimized via network assurance capabilities for predictable performance by proactively monitoring and troubleshooting the network.
Increasing network efficiency, but not the cost!
Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture with SD-Access support on Catalyst 9200 extends network intelligence on the switches, and delivers the business outcomes that customers want, all while increasing the time to revenue and lower operating costs.
As an example, the figure below illustrates the “total cost of ownership” (TCO) analysis (with and without SD-Access) for a mid-enterprise customer.
In the TCO analysis specified above, the customer sees significant cost reduction to carry out tasks such as inventory management, provisioning and policy enforcement. Simplified dashboard along with advanced network monitoring and troubleshooting delivered via DNA Center undoubtedly lowered the issue resolution cost.
Cisco continues to disrupt the network while understanding its customer’s complex needs, and delivering innovations for better business-outcomes; unlocking new opportunities for customers faster than ever before!
