Deploy this solution on a single customer and you will be truly amazed as it offers advanced features such as end-to-end segmentation, network automation, and a good user experience for a faster, more secure, easier to manage, and more efficient network. The two-piece, controller-based orchestrator and Network Fabric design [are] incredible, with many benefits for companies using this solution.

I configured and implemented this solution [Cisco SD- Acess] for 2 large companies. The main benefit I can include about this solution so far is the consolidation of all the below points: -Security: Identify and verify all endpoints and network segmentation (high and low level) -Monitoring: Network, applications and endpoints health, the best benefit in this point is related to insights that the controller provides to solve network issues. -Configuration: The deployment can be done in a way that saves time, not only for the first deployment but also for subsequent device incorporation in the network.

Cisco's SD-Access has reduced the downtime largely. [It] helped us in planning global expansion which can now be more agile. We are planning to invest in other areas due to the cost-savings from SD-Access and enhance our overall performance and productivity. The employees are interested in up-skilling in the technology, hence utilizing the resources in a better way.

We are using Cisco Software Defined Access (Cisco DNAC SD- Access) as the primary tool for the automation of our network (segments), albeit the early stages. We are still testing and trying to formulate possible deployment scenarios to make sure what model would fit our requirements, but one thing is for sure - we are going to use SD-Access moving forward.

We are using Cisco SD-Access for [the] whole organization. With the help of Cisco SD-Access, we are able to address the problems [of] automation through DNA center, network insight through assurance, and segmentation using SGTs. We deployed [Cisco] SD-Access in all our offices across Canada with two-layer architecture. Moving out from the complex traditional to next-generation networks save[s] our timelines for critical projects.

When we were architects new office space got the opportunity to upgrade our existing network setup which was the convention one. In the month of Apr 2019, we started working with Cisco gold partner to implement Cisco DNAC to facilitate our users in a more secure and reliable manner. Would like to explain that how SD-access helped us with smooth IT operations. Earlier, we were using the standard network architecture where no scope was available for segmentation of user group/department automatically. To configure/deploy/change IT equipment we had to trace the physical network connection on the switch port to assign the appropriate Vlan and it was a time taking process. After implementing the Cisco DNAC SD-access technology, it helped us to automate the network segmentation virtually without any manual international.

We have 50 of our bigger sites ready for Cisco SD-Access. We finished refreshing the hardware to various models of the 9500 and 9300 Series. We have DNA-C running in EMEA, AMEC, and APAC, with full ISE integration. We have migrated a site of 4500 users to SD-Access (in one weekend) and have implemented two greenfield sites--one with a couple of thousand users and one small site with 60 users.

The site operations managers are thrilled with the Assurance module, and, after a period of learning along with Cisco, our management is happy with the visibility DNA-C offers.
