As Government transitions to a hybrid workforce, a network that is automated and secure from the edge, to the data center is required. Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure helps customers future proof their networks, while delivering a consistent policy driven security posture for deployments. Federal government agencies have an alternative to traditional networks. Traditional networks rely on physical infrastructure such as switches and routers to make connections and run properly. In contrast, a software-based network allows the user to control the allocation of resources at a virtual network level through the control plane. Tomas Magill has been involved in nearly every ConvergeOne Cisco ACI design and deployment since 2015. Thomas will share his experience as well as demonstrate the capabilities of Cisco’s SDN platform.
