The constant need for more bandwidth is driving innovation in networking platforms, providing more value through increased flexibility, scale and automation.
Network operators are rapidly adopting automation features using the Cisco® Network Convergence System (NCS) 1000 series, with more than 4 petabits per second (Pbps) of capacity already deployed globally across mission-critical applications. Automated capabilities for model-based provisioning and streaming telemetry have enabled zero-touch provisioning and enhanced network visibility for both routing and optical. This drives a much lower OpEx model by allowing current staff to operate and maintain larger networks. Enhanced automation is key to redefining the optical network. Today Cisco introduced two new modular platforms to its NCS 1000 series to help providers maximize their fiber investment, while adding automation capabilities for the ROADM-based mesh topologies prevalent in metro and long-haul networks to support...
Cisco delivers intent-based networking for the wide area network (WAN) with new analytics and assurance solutions. Cisco solutions provide the visibility and insight that allow customers to quickly isolate and resolve issues in the WAN. Cisco solutions provide deep learning capabilities that can predict issues before they happen, potentially saving organizations from experiencing costly downtime. Cisco today announced new innovations built to bring visibility to IT’s biggest blind spot: the wide-area network (WAN). Made up of disparate networks outside of the control of IT, the WAN connects employees to applications, no matter where those employees might be. The fragmented nature of the WAN means that IT often has limited ability to specifically determine problems and get real-time information. Now, Cisco is helping IT by providing the capability to forecast WAN problems before they happen, while quickly isolating and fixing issues when they do occur. Over the past few years, the rise...

Organizations are increasingly leveraging the benefits of the multicloud world to drive operational efficiencies, flexibility, scalability and growth expansion. More than 50 percent of security professionals said they host networks in the cloud because of better data security; 48 percent, because of scalability; and 46 percent, because of ease of use1. As adversaries increasingly weaponize cloud services, dynamic workloads moving to the cloud are at risk of creating new threat vectors....
Findings show 39 percent of organizations are reliant on automation, 34 percent are reliant on machine learning, 32 percent are highly reliant on AI Malware sophistication is increasing as adversaries begin to weaponize cloud services and evade detection through encryption, used as a tool to conceal command-and-control activity. To reduce adversaries’ time to operate, security professionals said they will increasingly leverage and spend more on tools that use AI and machine learning, reported in the 11 th Cisco® 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report (ACR).
While encryption is meant to enhance security, the expanded volume of encrypted web traffic (50 percent as of October 2017) — both legitimate and malicious — has created more challenges for defenders trying to identify and monitor potential threats. Cisco threat researchers observed more than a threefold increase in encrypted network communication used by inspected malware samples over a 12-month period. Applying machine learning...
