Cisco introduces new training and developer programs to accelerate adoption of intent-based networking

Designed to be intuitive, Cisco’s new network can recognize intent, mitigate threats through encryption, and learn over time

†Cisco today announced that its global ecosystem of customers, developers and partners are embracing the company’s ambitious vision for a new era of networking.†Unveiled last week, Cisco’s new network can recognize intent, mitigate threats, and learn over time—representing one of the most significant breakthroughs in the history of enterprise networking.

This new network is the result of years of research and development by Cisco to reinvent networking for an age where network engineers managing hundreds of devices today will be expected to manage one million by 2020. Companies that are managing their networks through traditional IT processes will not be able to scale in this new age. Cisco’s approach creates an intuitive system that constantly learns, adapts, and protects, to optimize network operations and defend against today’s evolving threat landscape.

“Cisco is delivering a more intuitive system that automates the edge of the network and embeds machine learning and analytics at a foundational level,” said Scott Harrell, senior vice president of product management for enterprise networking. “Intent-based networking signifies a paradigm shift for our industry and a completely new era of networking. It’s exciting to witness our global ecosystem—spanning three million network engineers, 60,000 partners, and 450,000 developers—embrace the future of networking.”

Already, 75 leading global enterprises and organizations are conducting early field trials with these next-generation networking solutions, including Jade University of Applied Sciences, NASA, Newcastle Hospitals,†Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., Scentsy, UZ Leuven, and Wipro.

Ecosystem embraces intent-based networking

To drive adoption of its†intent-based networking solutions, Cisco today announced new training and developer programs to 28,000 networking professionals at the company’s annual user conference, Cisco Live. Attendees will learn about the impact intent-based networking will have on their organizations and begin developing the skills needed in the new era of networking.†

  • Network engineers:†Today, 80-95 percent of network operations are manually configured. Intent-based networking automates routine tasks by translating business intent into network configuration, freeing up network IT teams to drive more strategic initiatives with the business. To help network engineers evolve, Cisco is embedding new skills into its learning curriculum. This fall, Cisco will introduce two new training offerings around SD-Access, building on the existing DNA training portfolio and†Network Programmability training and certifications†available for network engineers and application developers.

  • Application developers:†The shift to open, programmable networks will create a range of new opportunities for app developers. As the network becomes code, and apps and infrastructure become more closely intertwined, app developers will gain a new platform to innovate. The new†DNA Developer Center†will provide Cisco’s DevNet community of more than 450,000 developers with the tools they need to bring applications directly into the network and create smarter software.

  • Channel partners: The shift from hardware to software-centric networking is driving Cisco’s channel partners to evolve their networking practices, develop new skills and pursue new business opportunities. Cisco is providing the programs, incentives, and tools to help its partners build networking practices that incorporate software, security, automation, and analytics for their customers.†Read this†blog†to learn more.
