Traditional networks cannot meet the demands of a digital network. Traditional networks were hardware centric, manual with fragmented security, and focused on network data. The new network that drives digital business demands a software-driven approach, automation, built-in security, business insights with proactive monitoring, and troubleshooting. With this vision, Cisco launched the new era of networking powered by the Cisco® Digital Network Architecture (Cisco DNA).
The latest innovations in Cisco DNA include new software capabilities that deliver greater intelligence and security through Cisco DNA subscription licensing for access switching and wireless software and an architectural approach that delivers end-to-end visibility, automation, and insights for switching. Introducing new subscription offers for access switching and wireless built on an entirely new era of intent-based networking.
