Cisco DNA

Intent-based networks
in a nutshell

Imagine an enterprise network configured automatically from your business policies and goals. An enterprise network which continually monitors and adjusts itself, maintaining its desired state, always. This is an intent-based network.

A closed-loop system consisting of three steps – translation, activation and assurance – is the foundation of any intent-based network.

What can intent-based networking
do for your business?

Ensure that your network architecture enables your business operations, rather than constricting them. Free up your network administrators’ time to focus on strategic or creative goals. Gather new intelligence from across your network and use it to power continual improvement and optimisation. Ensure that your network can adapt with the same speed and flexibility as the wider digital economy. Protect your critical data and applications from sophisticated cyberthreats.

These are just some of the benefits to be harnessed from a move to intent-based networking. No matter what the scope of your organisation or the sectors you operate in, intent-based networking will enable you to respond to growing complexity with agility and assurance.
