Today, the campus network needs to target not only availability and reliability, but services, too, as business-critical network applications become increasingly interactive and traffic patterns become less predictable. In adapting to these new demands and aligning the network with business priorities, IT managers must make sure the campus network delivers business value on two fronts: user experience and operational excellence. The Cisco® Campus Communications Fabric, a framework to enable the interactive campus and address the IT gaps that businesses experience, can help companies meet those objectives. Through six primary attributes - application intelligence, unified network services, integrated security, virtualization, non-stop communications, and operational manageability - the Cisco Campus Communications Fabric presents an architecture in which products and features work together to provide highly consistent services and policies, anywhere, anytime, and irrespective of connection type.
