Overall Satisfaction with Cisco DNA Spaces

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
  • It allows us to know the areas with the most user traffic in a certain time.
  • It allows us to know the behavior of users.
  • It allows us to show data to users through captive portals.
The greatest benefit that DNA Spaces provided us was through user behavior metrics, because through these metrics we can know the busiest areas in our offices and determine the time of use of network resources, with which we allows planning with greater certainty any change or movement required in the IT infrastructure of that area
Through the use of Cisco DNA Spaces, we have obtained more knowledge about the behavior of our users, which has allowed us to know the profile of the users who come to these areas and whether or not it would have a greater impact to carry out any type of communication through captive portals, in addition to knowing which are the critical hours during the day in which the organization is most dependent on the use of the IT infrastructure.
Compared with other analytics software, the plus that differentiates Cisco DNA Spaces is that it works in conjunction with the Cisco network infrastructure, which gives another perspective on data, based on the physical behavior of users in a certain place combined with other parameters, and not only in their behavior through digital media.
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.
