Cisco is fundamentally changing the way it approaches network by prioritizing R&D to deliver a common user experience independent upon wired, wireless or remote access. In addition, to simplifying network operations and reducing opex, Cisco is unifying its product suites for One Policy, One Management and One Network to address the BYOD megatrend. Its approach is to deliver a unified access or holistic solution to IT business leaders that span both wired, wireless and remote network access with a common security, management and features framework. Cisco calls this new approach Cisco Unified Access. Cisco is also introducing a new converged wired and wireless switch – Catalyst 3850 switch. Jeff Reed; Vice President and General Manager Unified Access Group at Cisco Systems joins me to discuss Cisco’s Unified Access strategy and new Catalyst 3850 switch.
