Next-Generation Networks – What Business Leaders Need to Know? Next-generation networks can bring together all the innovation in an organization—helping businesses to improve workforce engagement, create new business models, and transform customer experiences. Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture (DNA) is an open, programmable architecture that transforms business intent into business results— simplifying and automating to innovate and adapt rapidly. Cisco’s advanced networks for business drive better decisions through built-in analytics, machine learning, and AI functions, allowing organizations to take advantage of far-reaching and deep visibility into applications, users, and things to deliver valuable insights. The new network can learn to automate redundant, time-consuming tasks and can automatically adjust itself to quickly mitigate any attacks. This new era of networking not only boosts all aspects of the digital business, but also helps higher management such as CIOs, COOs, CMOs, and HR leaders to increase workforce engagement and workplace efficiency by providing new business trends like mobility, advanced collaboration solutions and digital building. How to enable simplicity through automation? How to implement new business trends? How can one revolutionize business operations through Internet of Things (IoT)? How to successfully manage the explosion of technology? This white paper highlights: What are the new network capabilities needed by the higher management? How to enable more engaged workforce? How to drive better decisions through data and analytics?

“Do more with less” has become the technological mantra, for data centres that have grown both in capacity and capabilities. Two crucial technologies that have surfaced and contributed improvements in both storage and physical-layer devices are Fiber Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and 10GBASE-T. The use of the two technologies together enhances the modern data centers as it can provide storage, server connectivity, and networking in ways that was not feasible with traditional data center designs. Ethernet technology is continuing to advance with new physical attributes that provide more options for lowering the cost of reliable storage connectivity in the data centers. Move ahead and read the following whitepaper that will address all your queries, including: How does FCoE & 10GBASE-T enhance storage and physical-layer devices? How is FCoE & 10GBASE-T different from traditional LAN and SAN? Is the advancement with server virtualization cost effective for your business?
