We are very proud to announce that Cisco Software-Defined Access (SDA) was the winner of the 2017 Best Next Gen Wi-Fi Network Infrastructure award. The Best Next Gen Wi-Fi Network Infrastructure award was presented to a product that best demonstrate forward thinking in network infrastructure by the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA). SDA was nominated for the award with two other competitors.

Held in November, the award was given out to Cisco at the Wireless Global Congress in New York City in front of over 700 guests. In addition to recognizing other award-winning companies in the industry, the gala was thrown in celebration of ecosystem excellence.

It’s no surprise that Cisco SDA won. The product provides a single, highly secure network that allows access to any application in minutes without compromising on security. Cisco SDA adapts to mobile demand, prepares for IoT growth and secures from evolving threats. In other words, it’s an entirely new era of networking.

The Industry Awards are determined by a group of independent industry experts, analysts and journalists. Since the judges are not beholden to any company, the WBA says that this “ensures the independence and quality of the awards.”

The Wireless Global Congress website explains about the WBA: “founded in 2003, the mission of the WBA is to accelerate global leadership for enabling of wireless services that are seamless, secure and interoperable. Building on a heritage of Next Generation Hotspot and carrier Wi-Fi, the WBA will continue to drive and support the adoption of Next Generation Wi-Fi services across the entire public Wi-Fi ecosystem.”
