S8|E21 Simple Steps to SD-Access Adoption Cisco Champion Radio

    • Technology

In this podcast, we discuss recent features, enhancements, and deployment strategies for Cisco SD-Access.

New features have enabled additional ways to evolve an existing network into a modern, automated, and secure SD-Access network in gradual steps that minimize disruption to business or users. Network Administrators can choose their starting point in the network evolution journey depending on the status of their existing network and decide their destination based on their business needs, adding benefits at each step along the way.

New segmentation capabilities and deployment flexibility have enhanced SD-Access to support Layer 2 switched access networks as a migration step in the journey.

New features also enable use cases that allow flexible routing of traffic from Layer 2 access networks to destinations outside the fabric. This is very useful in multitenant networks.

We also discuss the deep visibility that SD-Access features such as AI Endpoint Analytics and Group Based Policy Analytics bring that helps administrators determine what endpoint devices are on the network and how communication flows between them and other resources. This visibility lets them craft effective and granular access policies, which they can enforce automatically through device configurations that segment the network.
