Cisco DNA Center
Cisco’s answer to AI can be found within its network management dashboard, Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) Center.
The San Jose, Calif.-based tech giant in 2020 strengthened DNA Center with a new feature: AI Endpoint Analytics, which is letting DNA Center identify previously unknown endpoints at scale and then drawing from various contextual sources and AI. This allows the endpoints to be segmented, grouped appropriately, and have policies applied.
Cisco has since been juicing up its platform to compete against its competitors and in June, added even more to DNA Center in the form of AIOps and machine learning (ML) for network operations.
Cisco DNA Center gives businesses and channel partners the ability to do more advanced network segmentation, automation, and provides more visibility, which will be especially critical for IoT environments and customers that need to run “smarter” operations in the new tech normal, partners told CRN last summer.
