The Cisco Catalyst 9000 Series switches are designed for a new era of networking. This series of switches brings us numerous novelties compared to previous series, and in this blog we will single out the 5 most important benefits of using this popular series under the number 9000.
1. Increased level of security
The Cisco catalyst 9000 is the first purpose-built platform designed for complete access control using the Cisco DNA architecture and software-defined SD access. This means that this series of switches simplifies the design, provision and maintenance of security across the entire access network to the network core. With a DNA architecture and software-defined approach, patch installations can be automated, operations can be simplified, and all security vulnerabilities can be eliminated without slowing down or interrupting.
2. Faster response to change
As the needs of business change, and thus the architecture of the computer network, with a 9000 series of switches that are fully programmable, a quick response to change can be achieved. Launch Third-Party container-hosted applications for maximum security and flexibility, and the 9000 series switches will enable NETCONF / YANG scripting, streaming telemetry and the popular Cisco IOS XE as well as UADP ASIC that support full programmability.
3. Optimization for mobile devices
This series of switches brings outstanding visibility in wired and wireless network access. The Cisco Catalyst 9000 offers converged network services through security, policy, and encrypted traffic segmentation for both user and IoT devices.
4. IoT architecture management
Using the PoE / PoE + / UPoE / UPoE + standard, this series will meet all the power needs of IoT devices and always keep them secure as well as the entire access network.
5. Cloud Readiness
With this series, you can simplify, secure, and transform a cloud environment. Use the Dev-Ops tool to create and manage applications that are locally hosted on a switch in a container environment.
