What's New with Cisco Technologies?


Cisco is dominating the Networking Universe; they range from cloud computing to branch networking and keep constantly reinventing technologies to meet the needs of the latest fast paced environments. Few Technologies to look upon are Cisco SD-WAN, Catalyst 9200, Catalyst 9800, 4000 series Integrated, Cisco WebEx Single Platform Advantage, Huddle Spaces, Cloud Calling, SD-WAN Security Gain multilayer and Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches. Let’s discuss few here.

Cisco SD WAN and SD WAN security Gain Multilayer
Cisco SD WAN will Securely connect any user, any application, anywhere, with the power of the cloud. With the rise of multi-cloud applications, it is challenging with usage of traditional Wide Area Network (WAN), balancing the need to deliver good application experience, optimise cloud connectivity, and improve security posture. Cisco SD-WAN offers cloud security solution and on premises security. There are four security categories which includes; Network segmentation, enterprise firewall, DNS layer security and Secure web gateway. These categories have different combination of security features.

•IPsec encryption
•IPS
•App Controls
•Malware protection
•SSL/TLS decryption
•URL filtering 

With increasing adoption of multi-cloud environments, SD-WAN leverages complete transport flexibility to connect directly with cloud with internet use. SD-WAN creates best user interface application experience and reduces the cost for employers. 
Cisco SD WAN gives the customers the benefits of complete protection against internal and external threat to IaaS to Branches, better user experience through cloud access and secure direct internet. Centralised visibility and control for inbound, outbound and internal traffic also reduces complexity and cost with single product for cloud, security and networking.

Cisco WebEx Security
WebEx gives the industry's most secure collaboration platform which provides the protection and best practices from Cisco’s world-class security teams.

Benefits of Catalyst 9000 series switches are Performance and scale, Deep visibility and security, Lower TCO and Application performance

4000 series Integrated
4000 series secure, create high performance foundation for branch collaboration, edge compute, optimised cloud application. Let’s see the benefits of 4000 series:

•The ISR 4000 provides security does not take up much space, delivers performance and reliability
•Cisco SD-WAN manages ISR 4000 series.
•The ISR 4000's hardware defends data integrity and supply chain protect product

Huddle Spaces
Its nothing but a space which accommodates meeting for small group of people by changing the dynamics of the environment in which people work. Several organisations prefer such informal places to work to connect to their colleagues who work in remote locations and drive work forward.
Typically, 2-5 people are seated in a room for ad-hoc meetings equipped with video, audio and display system technologies. This enables the teams to collaborate and be flexible on their discussions, content creation and brainstorming sessions. Restrictions and limitations with bigger work space can be overcome by these Huddle Spaces which leverages the teams to come together and focus on their work as and when required. Types of Huddle spaces include Huddle Spaces for Communication, Huddle Space for co-creation and white boarding and Huddle Space for Wireless
