Innovative solutions that will help customers embrace technological advancement in regards to wireless connectivity has been announced by Cisco. This wireless connectivity is known as Wi-Fi 6 (also known as 802.11ax), a new standard for Wi-Fi networks to help give businesses a new face value.
Cisco is also working on expanding its industry most extensive campus networking portfolio by delivering a campus core switch purpose built for cloud scale networking. By putting together powerful automation and analytics software with a complete array of next generation switches, access points and controllers for the campus, Cisco enables only end to end wireless first architecture for the industry.
These new wireless network is built on the same fundamental innovation as 5G. These new wireless network will changed the way businesses and customer related with the world. Wi-Fi 6 delivers up to 400 per cent greater capacity. It is very fast and more effective in high density settings like conference room, lecture halls and stadium. Wi-Fi works in such a way that it does not take much from the batteries of connected devices and provide a great user experience. Latency is vastly improved in Wi-Fi 6.verall more predictable user experience.
Cisco is bring out different products and partnerships so businesses can deliver a genuinely unplugged and uninterrupted experience.
● Wi-Fi 6 Access Point: with custom, programmable chipsets and access to industry leading analytics capabilities, Cisco’s latest access point deliver a smarter and more secure wireless network. It is able to communicate with multiple IoT protocols, including BLE, Zigbee and Thread.
● Core Switch for the Campus Network: Cisco increases standard with the catalyst 9600 core switch family, which will serve as bedrock central to any networks successful operation. To deliver secure and efficient wireless experience, organisations need a single networking medium that bring wired and wireless together. Catalyst 9600 will be the foundation for the next generation of internet based business networks.
● New Developer Resources: Wi-Fi 6 and 5G opens an amazing opportunity for developers. Cisco DevNet is unveiling a new wireless development centre offering learning labs, sandboxes and developer resources needed to create game changing wireless applications. The cisco catalyst and Meraki access platforms are open and programmable down to the chipset level, given room to applications to take advantage of network programmability in new and amazing ways.
● New Ecosystem Partnerships: close to the launch of Wi-Fi 6 access points, Cisco completed interoperability testing with Broadcom, Intel and Samsung to address the gaps associated with a new standard. Preside, GlobalReach, Boingo, Samsung and others are expected to join the Cisco OpeningRoaming project to solve today’s biggest wireless pain points. Cisco OpeningRoaming project target is to make it easier to seamlessly and securely hop between Wi-Fi and LTE networks and onboard public Wi-Fi.
David Goeckeler, EVP and General Manger, Networking and Security Business at Cisco said “Every leap in connectivity enables the next wave of profound innovation. 5G and Wi-Fi 6 repressent a new era of connectivity”. “Developers are working on the next generation of wireless first immersive experiences. There is complexity for IT as billions of people connect to the network. Cisco is working on building multi domain network architecture to simplify complexity for IT, leaving CIOs to deliver against their innovation agenda”.
Wireless-first, cloud-driven, data-optimized
Wi-Fi 6 and 5G represent a huge opportunity but require businesses to tackle big challenges. In today’s workplace environment , users depend more on mobile experience and have no tolerance for downtime. To meet these criteria, the network must do:
i) Cloud-driven: The cloud enables unprecedented scale. Cisco makes uses of cloud to deliver new innovations faster.
ii) Data-optimized: The network offers millions of data points, providing context on users, their experience, and their vulnerabilities. Using powerful analytics, we can unlock new solutions that optimize IT operations, support better business decisions, provide innovative security solutions and engage customers in more effective ways.
Cisco has built out its intent-based networking portfolio to prepare customers for tomorrow’s challenges for over two years. Cisco’s new access points and campus switch are purpose-built for intent-based networking and represent the culmination of Cisco’s efforts to reinvent its entire access portfolio.
