Enterprise Networks

In my previous 3-part blog series I discussed the challenges in the Enterprise WAN and relevancy of SDN in overcoming these challenges and how Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture addresses these WAN challenges. In this blog post I will discuss how Cisco ONE (Open Network Environment) and ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture fit together. In a following blog, I will discuss how Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture provides six significant benefits to enterprises through programmability. ONE + ONE = 6 is the new math for Enterprise programmability!

Cisco ONE

Cisco ONE (Open Network Environment)

Cisco ONE is a comprehensive, Cisco wide solution (not just data center) approach to making networks more open, programmable, and application-aware. There are numerous blogs, and videos about Cisco ONE that can be found here. As a brief summary, Cisco ONE comprises of 3 pillars that provide a programmable approach to both physical and virtual infrastructure:

You can find a lot more detail on Cisco ONE here.

 

Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture

I covered the details of the Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture in my earlier blog. To quickly summarize the 3-layered architecture is show below and each of the layers described.

Cisco ONE and ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture

Now, the obvious question is: how does the Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture fit with Cisco ONE? And what the benefits to Enterprises from such a comprehensive approach to network-wide programmability enabled through an architecture that has a high degree of openness?

First, let’s see how the three pillars of Cisco ONE apply to the Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture and Cisco’s Enterprise portfolio.

 

With this high degree of support for Cisco ONE programmability and openness, the Enterprise portfolio is continually adding open access to new products and old providing strong investment protection.

OK, so now it is clear how Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture and the Cisco Enterprise portfolio fit into the overall Cisco ONE solutions. What are the additional benefits that Enterprises can expect with the Cisco ONE Enterprise Networks Architecture? How is ONE + ONE = 6?

I will cover these 6 benefits and the new Enterprise programmability math: ONE + ONE = 6, in the next blog.

 

Thanks for reading and please comment on any and all aspects. I look forward to your comments. Stay tuned for the next blog post.
