Meeting Topic:

The age of digitization has been around for years; what has not been around for years is a practical, real-life network architecture that enables organizations to take advantage of what “digitization” really means.  There is a solution and there are benefits beyond the catchphrase that will revolutionize the way we live, work, play, and interact.  The network is how organizations can take advantage of a digital market work place, and Cisco has designed an architecture that makes digitization a real-life, actionable build.

Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture is an open and extensible, software-driven architecture that accelerates and simplifies your enterprise network operations. The programmable architecture frees your IT staff from time consuming, repetitive network configuration tasks so they can focus instead on innovation that positively transforms your business. You finally have the flexibility to turn up network functions with a few clicks and to serve customers in engaging new ways as soon as you think of them-  all while lowering costs and reducing your risk.
