Cisco Unified Access Technology Overview: Converged Access

Today, less than 1 percent of things in the physical world are network connected. In the near future the growth of the Internet of everything (IoE), which Cisco defines as the convergences of people, process, data, and things, will make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before, creating unprecedented opportunities for countries, businesses, and individuals. However, although the number of devices, applications, and bandwidth demands are growing, the size of IT staff and budget remains static. IT organizations are struggling to manage the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend and growth of mobile devices and traffic. They face two main challenges:

  • Complexity of managing separate wired and wireless networks, multiple management systems, multiple network operating systems, and chaotic device onboarding processes.

  • Inconsistency of wired and wireless architecture, policy, security, features, and operations. When compared with wired networks, wireless also does not have the same level of granular quality of service (QoS), policy, and security enforcement close to endpoint devices.

Cisco® Unified Access is an intelligent network platform for IoE to enable greater business agility, operational efficiencies, and new connected experiences.
