Over the last 15 months Cisco has revolutionized how organizations provide reliable, secure access to end-users and devices that connect via wireless, wired or VPN networks. This new approach to unified access delivers significant operational improvements by delivering One Policy, One Management, and One Network. However, operational improvements are only half of the story. As a key solution within the Cisco ONE Enterprises Network Architecture, Cisco Unified Access allows IT to shift from merely managing the network to driving business change by delivering new connected experiences.
Business Innovation Starts with Mobility
IT is looking beyond just securely onboarding mobile devices to now scaling the access across devices.

Have you heard? Many organizations are now realizing that they can leverage location-based services to provide personalized mobile experiences and customer analytics. It pays to stay connected to your consumers and enhancing the mobile experience. Today at Interop New York, we unveiled a number of new product and solution innovations built to expand on and extend the power of Cisco Unified Access to drive these new connected mobile experiences.
Nearly one year into announcing our Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) solution, and with today’s announcement, there’s even more. We’re kicking off a deep dive blog series to give you an in depth look at the new enhancements, but for now here’s a taste of what’s new:

It enables guests to easily connect to the Wi-Fi network using their Facebook credentials and “check-in” to the venue’s Facebook profile. The check ins give venues additional marketing and branding opportunities through broadcasting through guest news feeds, as well as valuable demographic information. See how a conference center, Evergreen Brickworks, is using the solution:
Enhanced onsite analytics have a revamped UI to show you how, where, and when customers and visitors are moving throughout a venue. Read More »
