Switching for the New Era - The Network. Intuitive. The world is fast changing. Your network needs to keep up with it - the demand of fast advancing security threats, evolving IoT, Cloud and mobility integration.
Cisco® networks have moved data for 80 percent of the Internet for the last three decades. And we don’t just move data. We study it. We work continually to understand it. We apply that knowledge when we design our next generation switches.
The result: a network that constantly learns, constantly adapts, constantly protects and the new Cisco Catalyst® 9000 switches.
The mobility challenge
One network, wired and wireless. The convergence is seamless with the Cisco Catalyst 9000 switches. Across the network, wired or wireless, the policies are applied consistently for security, automation, and assurance, while segmentation separates devices and users to help reduce the attack surface. This delivers the best mobility experience for employees and guests. Catalyst 9000 switches has also been optimized to support the industry’s highest density 802.11ac Wave 2 deployments with Catalyst Multigigabit Technology, which extends the life of your existing cabling at 1-10Gpbs capable.
The IoT challenge
The scale of IoT is expected to be three times the global population by 2021 – Easily segment your network through network virtualization is key for IoT automation. Catalyst 9000 switches also supports a broad array of standards and features that can literally
power your Digital Building. These range from the highest perpetual PoE/PoE+/UPOE density in the industry, to support for multicast, Audio Visual Bridging (AVB), Time Synch (IEEE 1588), and Bonjour service discovery. The Catalyst 9000 Series also extend network securely identify and onboard device to IoT devices using centrally defined policies.
The cloud challenge
Connecting to Cloud services exposes more challenges and threats than we have in the local networks. With Catalyst 9000 switches you can simplify, secure, and transform your network to include a cloud or hybrid cloud environment. Equipped with a DevOps toolkit, you have the ability use open APIs and model-driven programmability to customize your network. Provisioning, automation, and monitoring can be done with off the shelf applications or can be locally hosted on the switch in a container-based hosting environment.
