Cisco DNA Spaces gives us the particularity of being able to observe the behavior of users within our corporate network, with which we can have a better understanding of what are the coverage requirements that are needed to cover the demand according to the areas that most are visited. Thus, it also gives us the necessary tools to be able to have a more real approach with the user through captive portals.
  • Real time metrics
  • Unified dashboards
  • Captive portals
  • Mobile app for administration
  • Second factor authentication is missing
  • Report editing
Cisco DNA Spaces is mostly recommended for scenarios where it is necessary to have visualization of the flow and density of users connected to a wireless network of one or more locations and thus obtain metrics for marketing, for example, in retail. However, it can also be used in any other scenario that involves the analysis of traffic and user density in order to establish future predictions of user behavior.

We are running the Cisco DNA Spaces as a part of a project to do indoor wayfinding. The area of the project is two floors with 50 access points and a 9800 WLC.
The design has been done to support the location tracking and will be integrated with a 3rd party vendor to do the indoor maps and reflect them on a mobile application.
  • Location tracking
  • Location analytics
  • Marketing
  • Integration with other vendors
  • BLE beacon management
  • Licensing.
  • Maps without using Cisco Prime
  • Integration with ISE
Well suited:
  1. a cloud service to replace all the hardware mess needed when using on prem.
  2. location tracking
  3. location analytics.
  4. large ecosystem
  5. BLE beacon management.
  6. COVID contact tracing.
Less appropriate:
  1. integration with ISE.
  2. license per feature.
  3. subscription model.
Cisco DNA Spaces is considered to be a replacement for the Cisco CMX. It would require a proxy server to move the data from the WLC to the cloud in an Air gap model, some people will not like this due to security.

My office is using Cisco DNA Spaces to apply the captive portals and to be able to identify what type of clients visit us and how often through the information they provide in the registry, in addition the captive portals serve us to send internal information as well as the measurements hygiene or COVID protocols to follow within our organization.
  • Locations analytics.
  • Application integration.
  • Data API.
  • To be able to download the information obtained from the captive portals in a more agile way.
  • Download reports from the dashboard.
Well suited:
  • Retail.
  • Workspaces.
Less appropriate:
  • Industrial spaces or open spaces when tracking people or objects is required.

One of the best applications which can digitize human spaces. We are using it for tracking the human space and assets in our organization. Major drawback of this that it need feeds from another solutions to really work efficiently. As promised by Cisco a lot of activity is going on with licensing.
  • Clear insight of digital work.
  • Center of DNA.
  • Wireless infrastructures get improved.
  • Licensing issues.
  • Take time to set up DNA center.
  • Time consuming initial setup.
Configuration take time but as soon as it setup it is very useful to locate the assets. Improve wireless structure , able to pick the weak areas. Make easier to transition from test environment to PROD. Implementation though whole structure is very smooth and provide breath of services and offers. I personally liked the product.

I was on the team that took part in the deployment and configuration, and I would have to say that the overall experience was great! There were minimal to no issues encountered, albeit we did not fully immerse ourselves just yet with the full capabilities/features that this product offers.
  • Deployment was easy
  • Features are expandable
  • Can easily be tailored to meet the business requirement
We purchased this product/service to improve business process outcomes in our day-to-day information technology operations and to ensure that we keep driving innovation.

Cisco DNA Spaces is a great program that allows us to keep an accurate view of the number of customers at any given location and to make predictions based on that information. We are able to monitor the frequency that visitors come to a location as well as the average length of stay which are incredible indicators when it comes to defining a user's experience along with other data.
  • Unified dashboard to analyze information.
  • Take information about visit history and length to use to create custom profiles.
  • Accurately change behavior and availability based on the data provided.
  • Integration could use some additions.
  • Updates are not as frequent as I would hope.
  • Can be a tad difficult to get things rolling at first.
This program is very well suited for being your eyes and ears when it comes to your visitor's or customer's traffic patterns. Being able to see clearly how frequently someone visits a location, or the length of time they spend at the location, in addition to being able to adapt your network to that information is amazing. There is so much information that can be gleaned from these datasets.
