EN-SDA is a 1-day workshop consisting of lectures and hands-on labs that cover Cisco’s Software Defined Access solutions.
As enterprise networks become more complex, and business demands increase as a result of digitization and digital business—traditional approaches to networking are struggling to keep pace.
Business challenges include:
- Provisioning network resources to support different business stakeholders and allow access to services
- Defining and managing policies allowing users to choose multiple devices to access services and systems from multiple locations
- Maintaining the security and integrity of the enterprise to protect against malicious attacks
- Optimizing IT service quality by collecting, analyzing and managing network telemetry data to identify potential problem areas and plan interventions to proactively address them.
- The SD-Access solution is part of Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture and leverages a centralized controller to provide a unified management framework to simplify management, increase agility and reduce cost.
