Cisco unveils new application to unify wired, wireless networks

Cisco has unveiled new applications under the Cisco Unified Access umbrella which claims to simplify network design by combining wired and wireless networks.

By CBR Staff Writer

Based on the new Cisco Unified Access Data Plane (UADP) ASIC terminates wired and wireless traffic while enabling consistent services to be applied to both. It also features a programmable data plane to deploy software-defined networking services.

The applications unify wired, wireless and virtual private networks (VPNs), into a single, secure network complying with one policy source and one management for the entire campus network, the company said.

Cisco Enterprise Networking Group senior vice president Rob Soderbery said that customers want a simple, highly secure network with reduced TCO that allows them to address new access requirements, such as BYOD and new lines of business applications.

"Cisco Unified Access allows customers to achieve these goals by moving away from individual vertical stacks of technology and disparate components toward a single architecture for an intelligent network," Soderbery added.

The new products under the Cisco Unified Access include the Catalyst 3850 Switch and the new IOS-based Cisco 5760 Wireless LAN Controller device.

The company will launch the new Cisco ISE 1.2 to improve mobile device management and deliver a single simplified policy management solution.
