Cisco DNA Spaces bridges the data gap in physical spaces

Cisco’s leadership and innovation in the indoor location services space has earned Cisco a reputation as a trusted vendor among customers. It bridges the gap between the data you have in your physical space and the insights that data can provide. This helps you make your workplace:


  • In 2020, Cisco DNA Spaces rolled out a suite of apps to facilitate the safe return to work and drive business resiliency. These apps help customers maintain workplace safety and compliance, leverage location analytics, deliver contactless experiences, and optimize operational efficiencies.


  • Cisco DNA Spaces also released its IoT Services offering for smart buildings, compatible with the Catalyst 9000 family of access points and switches. With a broad partner ecosystem of partner apps and devices, customers can deploy industry use cases like asset management, environmental monitoring, space occupancy, indoor wayfinding, and more, at significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO).


  • To meet the today’s Wi-Fi onboarding needs, Cisco DNA Spaces offers several options that enable seamless Wi-Fi onboarding, differentiated loyalty experiences, and address MAC randomization.
